Michael Carrick’s Middlesborough will be looking to continue their strong run when they travel to Wales to take on Cardiff City at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday.
The hosts have endured a dire run, with four defeats in their last five Championship games, with three consecutive 1-0 defeats against Millwall, Luton, and Hull. Last time out Sabri Lamouchi’s men fell to the 1-0 loss away to the Tigers, leaving Cardiff precariously close to the relegation places, in 21st place and just one point ahead of Huddersfield below them.
Michael Carrick has turned fortunes around since arriving as Middlesborough's manager, turning them into promotion contenders. The Boro have won six of their last seven league games, taking them up to third in the league. It's two wins on the bounce for Carrick’s men following the 3-0 win over Blackpool last weekend.
