The hosts are second in the table with only Leeds ahead of them on goal difference. The team plays well scoring a decent amount of goals but with a remarkable defensive record. Tony Pulis is an experience manager and he knows a thing or two about promotion.

Midweek Boro took a nice clean victory at Bristol City. The team scored two goals in the first 30 minutes of the game and proceeded to just close the fixture and spare some of their stamina.

West Bromwich started this season slowly but the team looks to be improving gradually. From home defeat to Bolton going to a 7-1 victory against QPR in just a couple of weeks. The team definitely has what it takes to be in the playoffs and will be striving for that.

Last round as I mentioned WBA literally destroyed QPR. They opened the score and later conceded an equalizer. That didn’t discourage the team and The Baggies netted 6 straight goals from there on. The team looks capable at both ends of the pitch and will provide a stern test for Middlesbrough.

Middlesbrough vs West Brom: Head-to-head

  • Middlesbrough is unbeaten in 6 games in all competitions
  • WBA has 3 straight victories
  • WBA is unbeaten at Riverside in 5 games – 2 victories and 3 defeats
  • WBA is unbeaten in 8 games against Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough vs West Brom: Predictions

This is a tough one to call. WBA has a perfect record against Middlesbrough in recent times but currently the hosts are looking dangerous.

Middlesbrough is in form this season and hasn’t shown any distinctive weakness. They have been winning both at half-time and full-time keeping a clean sheet in the process in all their 3 victories this season

Therefore, this Championship encounter should be a lively one with some goals.
