      Tip Reasoning

      Middlesbrough pulled off a huge Capital One Cup shock in midweek by beating Manchester United on penalties at Old Trafford. Back at the Riverside they face the much less terrifying prospect that is a home match against managerless Charlton.

      They also pulled off an impressive comeback to win 3-1 at Wolves last time out in the league to move back up to 4th after a small blip in form prior to that. They’ve only conceded 2 goals in 7 matches at the Riverside this season, winning 5 times and 4 of those victories were by at least a 2 goal margin.

      Against a Charlton side that has lost 7 of their last 8 matches and hasn’t won in 10, you have to fancy them to win this one also by more than a single goal and you can back them to do that at 21/20, which seems very reasonable.

      The only question mark against Middlesbrough here might be about how much their exertions during 120 minutes at Old Trafford have taken out of them. However when you consider that Boro actually made 5 changes for that match, they will have some fresh legs to bring back in and possess a strong enough squad to cope with a 2nd match in 4 days.

      Charlton finally dismissed manager Guy Luzon after a second successive 3-0 home defeat this week. They have fallen into the bottom 3 and have Karel Fraeye in caretaker charge here.

      Morale at the Valley is seriously low right now and they may struggle to live with a confident Middlesbrough side so consider backing it to end in a 3-0 home win at 15/2.
