Tip Reasoning

  • Blackpool have lost five of their last seven games.
  • Middlesbrough claimed a 2-0 win at Nottingham Forest on Wednesday.
  • Boro have four points from three games at the Riverside.

Boro seek back-to-back wins

Middlesbrough ended a four-game winless streak on Wednesday with a 2-0 win at rock bottom Nottingham Forest and they can make it two victories in a row when they face another struggling side on Saturday as Blackpool visit Teesside.

Boro’s victory over Forest was just their second of the season but their home for has been fairly good with four points from three games.  QPR are the only team to leave the Riverside Stadium with three points so far and Middlesbrough were arguably unlucky not to get anything out of that game, while in their last match at home they were held to a 1-1 draw by Blackburn in a game they could quite easily have won as Rovers scored with their only shot on target.

Blackpool picked up an improbable win over Fulham last weekend but were brought back down to earth on Tuesday as they slumped to a 3-0 loss at home to Huddersfield.  The Seasiders have lost five of their last seven games, drawing one and winning one, and are winless on their travels with two points from three fixtures so far.

A home win is my main bet for this Championship match-up and a 2-1 win for Boro is my correct score prediction.  Blackpool have scored in all of their away games so far so they should be able to get on the scoresheet, but Boro still have the quality to take all three points.
