Middlesbrough vs Norwich City

, KO: 19:45 Mar 6, 2024, Riverside Stadium
Norwich City

Middlesbrough are in desperate need of an upturn in fortunes as they host Norwich City in a midweek Championship fixture. With Norwich also looking unconvincing on their travels, both teams could be set to cancel each other out.

It has been a difficult campaign for Middlesbrough, who have struggled to replicate last season’s playoff run. Things appear to be worsening in recent weeks as they have lost four of their last five matches.

Middlesbrough head into Wednesday’ clash off the back of a 2-0 defeat at Stoke City last time out in the Championship. They saw more of the possession but failed to create much in attack.

There has been very little home comfort for Middlesbrough in recent weeks as they are winless in their last four matches at the Riverside Stadium. Michael Carrick’s men have played out two draws in that run and will be keen to get back to winning ways.

Norwich City are coming off a 1-0 victory over Sunderland in their previous Championship fixture. They were given a stern test by the Black Cats, with Josh Sargent's effort nine minutes from time proving the difference.

The Canaries have shown some good form in recent weeks and are unbeaten in their last six matches. David Wagner’s men have picked up four wins in that run and are pushing for a playoff place, sitting just one point off the top six.

A slight problem for Norwich City in the midst of their recent good form is a poor record on their travels as they are winless in their last four away matches. They have drawn the last two in that run, holding out for a 1-1 scoreline at Blackburn Rovers in their previous fixture on the road.
