Middlesbrough has managed only 2 wins in their last 9 games, and have 3 losses in their last 5 outings. They need to keep it tighter at the back if they want to have any chances of climbing up the table, as they have conceded more goals than they have managed to score.

They have won just one game at home this season managing a couple more points through draws. With 3 wins and 3 draws to their name, they have added 12 points to their tally.

Boro despite not being in the best of forms have enough quality to win 3 points at home.

The Posh on the other hand is unlikely to win any points away from home however, they could get on the score sheet, against a shaky home defense. Expect a win for the hosts and BTS is a fair shout.
