Team News: Middlesbrough
Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock will be thankful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash owing to a completely healthy group available to choose from.
Team News: Bristol City
Thanks to a largely full-strength squad, there is just the one fitness problem for the Bristol City boss Paul Simpson to contend with. Andreas Weimann (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game. Rene Gilmartin is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
In our opinion, Middlesbrough look set to score more than once when they meet Bristol City, who won’t find it easy to break down their defence.
We can therefore see a decent 2-0 winning score for Middlesbrough at the conclusion of the game.
