Our prediction for this Championship match:
Blackburn Rovers will be aiming to build on back-to-back wins over Queens Park Rangers and Sheffield Wednesday when they take on Middlesbrough at Riverside Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Riversiders are only four points behind the play-offs berth, meaning that the game against the Boro is of big importance for the away team. Blackburn are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match, and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration.
Middlesbrough shared the spoils with Birmingham City on Tuesday evening, with Ashley Fletcher scoring a late equalizer for the hosts. It has to be noted that Paddy McNair failed to convert a penalty for the Boro in the first half of the match. Anyhow, given Blackburn’s current form, we believe that away win should be considered. In the first half of the season the Riversiders defeated the Boro 1-0 at Ewood Park.
