Bristol City V Middlesbrough: Match Preview, Predicted XI And Betting Odds

Middlesbrough manager Jonathan Woodgate will be looking to build on the four points that the Teessiders have gained from their last two games when they face Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

The Robins will certainly be a challenge for Woodgate’s Boro side. They haven’t lost since the opening day defeat to Leeds and are on a run of three consecutive wins going into tomorrow’s encounter.

Middlesbrough could see Dael Fry return to the starting line up. The 22-year-old has not played this season due to a hamstring injury but has been in full training for a while and could make his comeback versus City.

George Friend may also play a part. The Boro captain has been struggling with a quad injury but is now fully recovered. Woodgate will, though, be without Hayden Coulson who is struggling with a thigh problem.

Middlesbrough’s Predicted XI To Face Bristol City:

Randolph, Howson, Fry, Ayala, Bola, Wing, Clayton, McNair, Fletcher, Assombalonga, Browne

Bristol City have six players on their injury list. Tomas Kalas was stretchered off in the first half of their 3-1 win over Hull City. The Czech Republic international will be out for four to six weeks with a hamstring injury.

He joins Bailey Wright (Achilles, back and thigh), Adam Nagy (ankle), Korey Smith (foot), Jay Dasilva (fractured leg) and Saikou Janneh (knee) on the treatment table.

Bristol City’s Predicted XI:

Bentley, Pereira, Baker, Williams, Moore, Rowe, Weimann, Brownhill, Massengo, Diedhiou, Afobe

The homes side are favourites for the win at the bookies. They are 11/10 at Betfred with a draw 5/2 with Unibet. A victory for Boro is 29/10 at BetVictor.

Predicted Score – 2-0 to Bristol City
