Tip Reasoning

  • Middlesbrough have failed to win their last two home Championship contests.
  • Huddersfield have avoided defeat in ten of their last 11 away league games.
  • Middlesbrough have failed to score in four of their last six league games.

Backing Boro not for us right now

Backing Middlesbrough to win games at short odds would seem like a fool’s errand at the moment since Chris Wilder’s team have forgotten how to score a goal. Three consecutive Championship blanks mean Boro have now failed to score in four of their last six league games heading into this crucial Easter Monday clash at home to Huddersfield.

The Terriers have no such problems, although they will need to shrug off the sense of frustration borne out of their 2-2 Good Friday draw with Queens Park Rangers at John Smith’s Stadium.Carlos Corberan’s side were not at their best as they were twice pegged back by the out-of-form R’s in a game which the visitors went closer to winning.

Huddersfield’s only defeat in their last 11 away league trips came at Millwall prior to the international break last month when by all accounts they were running on empty. Most of the players on Friday looked relatively fresh and their results since the break suggest Town remain support-worthy for a game such as this.

Smart cookie Corberan has the answers

Tactically, Corberan is a smart cookie and should have plenty of answers for the questions Chris Wilder will pose from the home dugout. Boro created enough chances to score against Fulham and Hull in two recent 1-0 home reverses, but their forwards failed to fire and there may not be much Wilder can do about that.

The hosts’ quote of 4/5 is one to steer clear of here given those recent issues and we would much rather take a similar price about the Terriers to avoid defeat.

It can be feast or famine for Town’s goal production away from home and a 0-0 could well ensue if neither manager blinks, but Boro need to open it up at some stage, so we are picking a 1-1 final result.
