Middlesbrough 1/1 to beat Coventry in Tuesday’s Championship contest

Competition: Championship

Market: Middlesbrough win

Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport

Hoping to continue on their recent resurge, Middlesbrough have the chance to climb into the top-six when they welcome Coventry to an empty Riverside on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Middlesbrough would have been rightfully disappointed to have seen Cardiff come from behind and grab a late point over the weekend, the mood around the Riverside should be at a recent high. Appearing to have turned a real corner since appointing veteran boss Neil Warnock, the former Premier League outfit suddenly have a potential play-off charge at the top of their agenda. Really impressing many in the Championship as they picked up a shock 1-0 win against Bristol City earlier in the month, the former Sheffield United boss now finds his squad in the midst of a six-match unbeaten run either side of the international break. Already managing to snatch points off of the likes of top-two chasers Bournemouth and Reading so far this season, there is no doubt that Middlesbrough will be confident of extending on their recent purple patch in midweek.

As for the visitors, while that dramatic 3-2 win against QPR prior to the international break might have improved the mood in Coventry’s camp, the Blues have come crashing back down to earth in a worrying fashion. Seen as one of the early-season contenders to get hit with an immediate return back to League One, Mark Robins’ men undoubtedly put in what was a campaign-worst display over the weekend. Completely blown away thanks to a 4-0 drumming against Blackburn on home soil, the Blues now find themselves in the midst of a five-match winless run and in for a tough test when they travel to the Riverside on Tuesday night. Remarkably failing to win any of their last 10 straight trips to the North Yorkshire, we’re backing a home victory in midweek.
