Meanwhile, the Boro are yet to win an away match in all competitions since the 2-1 win at Sunderland at the start of the season. Scoring goals has also been a problem for Aitor Karanka’s side while playing away from home. They scored 1 goal from last 4 away games.

Accrington Stanley are 20th in League Two and are just 2 points away from the relegation zone. They defeated fellow League Two outfit Leyton Orient in the previous round of the tournament and that was their only win in 4 games in all competitions. Accrington had traveled to meet a Premier League side this season, at West Ham for the League Cup fixture. They almost earned a goalless draw until Dimtri Payet denied them with a strike deep into the injury time.

Middlesbrough vs Accrington Stanley: Head-to-head stats

Accrington Stanley fans have sweet memories of their previous visit to the Riverside stadium. It was in the 2013/14 League Cup clash in which Accrington came from a goal down to beat Boro 2-1.

Middlesbrough vs Accrington Stanley: Prediction

Aitor Karanka’s focus will be on the next Premier League fixture. But he is desperate for a win to improve the morale of his players. They could start with a full strength squad looking to capture the initiative in the first half. So, the HT/FT bet in favour of home side is the absolute pick for this fixture.
