Wilder to oversee first win

Ordinarily when a manager loses his job it's because he's doing a terrible job; that's not true of Neil Warnock and this Middlesbrough side as they've been competitive most of the season. Their home form is decent of late too with 10 points taken from the last 15 available. They're welcoming a Preston side that are pretty ropey on the road on Tuesday so should fancy their chances of a win. Preston beat Bournemouth a couple of weeks back but that's their only win in five road games with three of those five ending in defeat. They lost this fixture last season too with Boro easing to a 2-0 win.

We won't see loads of goals

Our next tip for this match is that we'll see a maximum of two goals; you'll need to navigate to the total goals market to wager as we back under 2.5. Middlesbrough have gone under 2.5 goals in four of their last five matches including their last two. Preston sit with two of their past five outings coming in short of the 2.5 mark but the real key stat is in the head to head record. Four of the last five meetings between these sides at the Riverside have ended under 2.5 goals with an average goals per game of just 1.6.

Somebody will fail to hit the net

Our final prediction is that someone will blank in this match. Only one of Middlesbrough's last five home game has seen goals for both sides; Middlesbrough have kept three clean sheets in that period and blanked once. Preston's away form also supports a ‘no' prediction from this market; three of their last five away games has seen a nil in the final score line with Preston failing to find the net in all three of those matches. As touched on earlier, they lost this game to nil last season too.

Middlesbrough vs Preston: Team Overviews

Chris Wilder's appointment didn't exactly get a massive uplift on the performance levels Middlesbrough had been showing under his predecessor but they remain similarly difficult to play against. The big thing for Boro's longer term aspirations lays in the treatment room with several big players injured. A positive note from Wilder's first game is the goal from Matt Crooks; that's his fourth of the season. Preston are in a similar state injury wise; they'll be bemoaning the sheer volume of injured players. It gets worse too because Patrick Bauer could miss this game too.
