          Middlesbrough vs Preston Prediction, Tips & Stats

          After two contrasting results last time out, Middlesbrough and Preston North End will meet on Saturday afternoon with them both coming into this game separated by nine places in the Championship table now.

          Boro played hosts to the in-form Stoke City during the week and for all the incredible form under Michael Carrick, it was still not enough to defeat the Potters after their excellent winning run recently.

          Chuba Akpom scored for Carrick's side that day and it brought home yet another unbeaten game for Boro, which now extends their unbeaten run back to three games since losing to West Bromwich Albion 2-0.

          The North East outfit also smashed Reading 5-0 two weeks ago, as they headed to South Wales and defeated Swansea City 3-1 before the draw with Stoke. It keeps the club in third and behind Sheffield United by a handful of points, as Carrick has now led his side from the relegation zone and into a comfortable position of nine points above seventh.

          Preston come into this one off the back of another win last time out, as they beat Rotherham United 2-1 with a goal from Thomas Cannon and another from Ched Evans. They also beat Cardiff City just before this and now come into this game in 11th.

          preston team news

          Ched Evans scored once more last time out and he will play here alongside Thomas Cannon after he also netted last time out. Alvaro Fernandez likely starts here after coming off the bench and getting booked. Liam Delap should get more minutes and perhaps even start and it's the same for Troy Parrott. Josh Onomah should also get some more game time after missing the last outing as well, and it's the same for Ryan Ledson. Andrew Hughes and David Cornell are back in the squad now too. Freddie Woodman's praises continue after a solid performance once again last time out and he will start in goal, as Greg Cunningham, Diabt and Storey remain in a back three.

          Middlesbrough team news

          Paddy McNair will stay in the defence here with Lenihan, Giles and Smith. Jonny Howson came off last time out but should remain in the midfield here alongside Hackney. Chuba Akpom got another goal last time as Middlesbrough's positive form continues. Michael Carrick now likely makes only a few changes to the side. Alex Mowatt should get more minutes now, and Marcus Forss and Daniel Barlaser should start after missing the last outing. Dael Fry also missed the last game and should start here.
