Middlesbrough vs Hull City

, KO: 20:00 Dec 13, 2023, Riverside Stadium
Hull City

Middlesbrough are aiming to find some traction for their campaign as they host Hull City in a midweek Championship fixture. Hull have also been unconvincing in recent weeks and with Boro often doing their best work in front of their fans, a home win is expected here.

Middlesbrough have not been at their best this term as they are struggling to replicate the performances behind last season’s playoff run. Michael Carrick’s men are currently in the bottom half of the table, although they are just three points off the top six.

Things have not been particularly smooth for Middlesbrough in recent weeks as they have lost three of their last four Championship matches. They suffered a 2-0 home defeat to high-flying Ipswich Town in their previous fixture.

While it was a disappointing defeat to Ipswich Town, Middlesbrough have mostly done well in front of their fans. They had won five of the previous six matches at the Riverside Stadium, a run that included a 1-0 victory over Championship leaders Leicester City and a 2-1 triumph over fourth placed Southampton.

Hull City are fully entrenched in the playoff race this season and are one of three teams between sixth and eighth tied on 30 points. However, they have struggled to find their best form in recent weeks, losing their last two matches.

The Tigers travel to the Riverside Stadium off the back of a 2-0 defeat to QPR in their previous Championship fixture. Liam Rosenior’s men saw plenty of possession but were wasteful in attack and also vulnerable to fast breaks from the hosts.

That defeat to QPR highlights a poor record for Hull City on their travels as they have picked up just one win from their last six away matches. Among their defeats in that run is a 3-1 loss to West Brom while they were also hammered 3-0 by Ipswich Town.
