Middlesbrough seriously jeopardized their top-six complete by asserting only 1 stage before two league outings from the likes of Wigan Athletic and Brentford. Boro suffered an abrupt and thoroughly unsatisfactory 1-2 defeat on the Bees on Saturday afternoon. They sit , but just four points over seventh-placed Bristol City.
This is certainly not the sort of form that you would like to have coming face to face with flying-high Preston North End from the mid-week round. The people will venture in the game as hefty type favourites after a run of four wins and two draws at past six league occasions. They’re unbeaten in previous ten Championship excursions and they as many as five to the spin off from home in the branch.
