Middlesbrough boss Neil Warnock was delighted with how his side played during his first game in charge against Stoke City at the weekend.
The 2-0 win will certainly hold the Teessiders in good stead as they travel to another relegation-threatened side, Hull City, on Thursday evening.
Warnock will have an almost fully fit squad to choose from, with Hayden Coulson returning from injury. Harold Moukoudi (knock) is the only major fitness doubt heading into the match at the KCOM Stadium.
Middlesbrough’s Predicted XI To Face Hull:
Stojanovic, Spence, Howson, Fry, Friend, McNair, Saville, Johnson, Fletcher, Assombalonga, Roberts
Hull City manager Grant McCann could be without Mallik Wilks whose loan deal from Barnsley is set to expire today.
Hull’s Predicted XI:
Long, Magennis, Burke, de Wijs, Elder, Batty, Pennington, Kane, Lopes, Scott, Eaves
The bookmakers have made Boro the favourites with Coral pricing them at 6/5 for the win. A draw is 12/5 with Bet365, while a Hull victory is currently 5/2 at Betway.
Predicted Score – 1-1
