Middlesbrough – Preston preview: Team news, form, and possible lineups

Check out the latest news and updates on both teams here, including the most likely Middlesbrough vs Preston lineups:

Middlesbrough

With 5 wins in their last 8 games in Championship, Middlesbrough have done great lately. After all, the team only recorded two more wins in the games prior to that, so this has been their best run this season. Thanks to this, Middlesbrough are now in the middle of the standings, but also just a couple of points behind the playoff zone. Meanwhile, Riley McGree and Marcus Forss are currently out with injuries, along with Darragh Lenihan and Tommy Smith who are out for the season.

Middlesbrough predicted lineup:

Dieng – Van den Berg, McNair, Fry, Bangura – Hackney, Howson – Crooks, Jones, Greenwood – Coburn

Preston

Although they've only won a couple of games in their last 10 matches in the league, Preston is still holding on to a playoff spot at the moment, thanks to their earlier run of 6 wins in a row. That being said, Middlesbrough could overtake them with a win in this match, along with a few other teams. When it comes to team news, Robbie Brady is suspended for this match, while Emil Riis, Ali McCann, and Greg Cunningham are injured.

Preston predicted lineup:

Woodman – Storey, Best, Lindsay – Potts, Browne, Holmes, Whiteman, Millar – Osmajic, Evans

Teams often release their lineups an hour before the kickoff.

Player to watch: Mat Crooks

We can see Middlesbrough winning this match, so our player to watch is one of their most consistent performers this season, Matt Crooks. The experienced midfielder already contributed with 3 goals and 4 assissts in Championship, so Preston will have to keep a close eye on him in this match.
