Middlesbrough is where they want to be – in the direct promotion mix of teams. They have a tough challenge for the top 2 spots but with their team and quality their fans will want promotion and nothing less.

Midweek they broke a 2 game winless streak with a nice clean victory away at Ipswich Town. Boro started extremely well and dealt a heavy blow to their opponents in the opening 15 minutes. Besic and experienced winger Stuart Downing scored 2 goals in 4 minutes giving their team a comfortable lead.

Nottingham are looking decent since the start of the season. Their most recognizable feature in recent weeks is making high scoring games. The team is able to score a lot but often neglects defensive duties.

Another example of this came midweek. Nottingham face struggling Millwall side. Everything started well with a goal in the middle of the first half. Second goal followed after 70 minutes of play had passed. It was all looking rosy until the point Millwall scored two late goals to reach for the draw.

Middlesbrough vs Nottingham: Head-to-head

  • Middlesbrough are unbeaten in 5 games
  • Middlesbrough are unbeaten at home since the start of the season
  • Nottingham is winless away from home since the start of the season
  • Nottingham is unbeaten in 6 games

Middlesbrough vs Nottingham: Predictions

Considering Nottingham’s poor away form Middlesbrough are looking like favourites for this one. They are strong and ambitious and have little room for mistakes. Nottingham are a good side but they struggle on the road. Still they look more than capable of scoring goals and we may see some action at both ends of the pitch.
