Woodgate faces former side

Jonathan Woodgate comes face-to-face with boyhood club Middlesbrough on Friday, having taken his first managerial role since being dismissed from the Riverside last year. Neil Warnock has turned round Boro’s fortunes since, but can he guide his side to a win at Bournemouth?

Woodgate has fallen on his feet since departing the Riverside. He left Warnock a side battling against the drop last term, who have been transformed into playoff contenders. However, Woodgate finds himself at the helm of a side two places above Warnock’s high-flyers.

Both sides have had ups and downs of late, each securing 13 of the last 24 points on offer to them. It’s hard to favour either side given that mixed return, but we’re backing goals at the Vitality in our predictions.

Both of these sides have issues defensively, with Bournemouth conceding in four of their last five. Boro have scored in all but one of their last 11 Championship games, but they’ve kept one clean sheet across their last five trips.

This Bournemouth side have scored in 89% of their home league matches, including each of their last eight. With that in mind, both teams to score is our prediction here alongside a 1-1 draw.
