Middlesbrough are looking to make it three wins in a row as they host Bristol City, who make the long trip up North.

City, on the other hand, have not scored a single goal in their last six games in all competitions while losing seven on the bounce. 

Most recently, Middlesbrough travelled to Reading where they scored twice to beat the Royals 2-0. 

Ashley Fletcher opened the scoring halfway through the first half. The tall striker has now scored in two straight games since returning from injury. 

Seven minutes later, Marc Bola doubled Boro's lead with an emphatic strike past Rafael into the top corner. 

On Saturday, Barnsley handed struggling Bristol a 1-0 defeat at Ashton Gate. Carlton Morris was substituted on in the 57th minute but it only took 10 for the striker to make an impact. The 25-year-old smashed the ball into the back of the net from close range after a scramble inside the six-yard-box.

Team news


Marcus Tavernier continues to deal with a muscle injury. 

Unfortunately, Marcus Browne is out for the rest of the season.

Bristol City

Out for the season with a MCL injury, Alfie Mawson will of course miss this midweek clash.

Another serious injury is Andreas Weimann's ACL, who hasn't featured since October and remains out. 

Suffering with a hamstring injury, Callum O'Dowda is set to miss  the match but is expected back very soon.  

Jay Dasilva and Joe Williams are also nursing injuries.

Predicted lineups


Bettinelli; Dijksteel, Fry, McNair; Fisher; Howson, Morsy, Kebano, Bola; Fletcher, Watmore.

Bristol City:

Bentley; Mariappa, Kalas, Moore; Hunt, Vyner, Lansbury, Palmer, Sessegnon; Semenyo, Diedhiou. 

Ones to watch

Middlesbrough - Neeskens Kebano

Signing in January, the 28-year-old winger is a very skilful and brings a different dynamic style Boro' have been lacking. 

Kebano has the ability to change the game and has good chance to be involved in any goal scored by Tuesday's hosts.

Bristol City - Famara Diédhiou

In all competitions, the striker has eight goals to his name so far this season.

Despite not scoring since his brace towards the end of January, the Senegalese forward will be looking to change Bristol's goalless drought this Tuesday night.
