            Watford vs Middlesbrough Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Middlesbrough will make the trip to Vicarage Road this weekend with the away side aiming to leap out of the bottom three after a dismal start to the season where Watford are also experiencing one of their worst starts in recent years.

            The Hornets have failed to get into the promotion talk for some time now, and they are heading into this game down in 16th in what has been another dreadful start for them. The club come into this one having been battered 3-0 by Leeds United, drawing 2-2 with West Bromwich Albion before that. Tom Ince and Matheus Martins scored in that draw with the Baggies.

            This also means the last win for Watford came in a 2-0 victory over Birmingham City that saw Mileta Rajovic score in added time, whereas Ryan Andrews bagged with basically the final kick of the game.

            As for Boro, they are down in 22nd in what has - like last season - been another struggle in the first handful of games. This time around, Michael Carrick's job is no doubt hanging by a thread, but despite the poor league form, his side managed to get off the mark with a 2-0 win over Bradford City in the EFL Cup last time out.

            However, Better yet, the club managed to get back to winning ways in the league too, as Riley McGree and Jonny Howson scored in a home win over Southampton. Nevertheless, this was just their first win of the season with Boro already experiencing five losses this season and two draws. Carrick's side have also let in 15 and won seven games too.

            Middlesbrough team news

            Despite the terrible form in the league, Michael Carrick's men are into the fourth round of the EFL Cup after a midweek win over Bradford City. There were changes made for that game, so expect Morgan Rogers to drop out after his midweek goal. Alex Gilbert should now return with Josh Coburn also expected in at some stage. Isaiah Jones and Jonny Howson missed the game against Bradford, so they could start here. In defence, O'Brien, Paddy McNair and Daniel Fry should all remain with Smith at right-back - the latter was booked last time out. Daniel Barlarser will carry on in midfield with Hackney, while Riley McGree and Emmanuel Latte Lath are expected further up the pitch. Lukas Engel is facing a late fitness test.

            Matheus Martins was brought off in the first half of the loss at Elland Road to Leeds, and he is not expected to be fit for this one. Tom Ince is, however, despite also coming off the field. Ismail Kone, Sierralta and Louza are all likely to play in midfield, as Rajovic carries on in the attacking role. Lewis, Hoedt, Porteous and Andrews should remain in defence with Daniel Bachmann in goal. Yaser Asprilla and Edo Kayembe are likely to play at some stage, while Tom Dele-Bashiru has also returned to action. Mattie Pollock and Jeremy Ngakia are also back in the team and should feature in this one. James Morris is back too.
