Middlesbrough will be looking to score their first win in three when they host Derby County on Riverside on Wednesday night.
Neil Warnock’s side came into play after their Saturday defeat to Norwich City, which ended their undefeated run of ten games.
The game will be the second game of the new temporary management quartet responsible for the Bottom Club Derby. The team of four, which includes Wayne Rooney, lost their opening game to Bristol City over the weekend after replacing Phillip Coco.
Boro is still looking up the table and after falling for Tuesday night games, a win would bring them back to seventh place, just one point off the play-off spots.
Can you achieve it? Dom Shaw and Craig Johns will be with you throughout the evening, briefing you on the setup, action, analysis and reaction.
He comes to collect a corner but fiddles with it. Gathers on second try when wisdom gives him an accidental kick for his troubles
Roberts in the heart of Boros first big opportunity. Tavernier played him in, centered on Assombalonga, whose shot was saved. Good start.
Boro debutant tonight, with Roberts and Assombalonga also starting, replacing Spence, Johnson and Akpom in the first XI
Nice to see Warnock looks more positive on this one. I guess it will be 4-2-3-1 again. Watmore will likely be far to the right (pleased to make his Boro debut tonight) and then Tav / Roberts will be either AMC or LWF. A team of attack intent
Boro have re-emphasized how defensive they are against Norwich, despite receiving a late penalty against Teemu Pukki.
« It was one goal that prevented Neil Warnock’s side from conceding a fifth straight, despite the fact that conceding one game in five is pretty good. « .
« Phillip Cocu may have left Pride Park during international break, but Derby is still in free fall. The Rams have had. October no more game won and are rooted at the bottom of the table.
« The fact that Middlesbrough rarely conceded goals and the fact that Derby can’t score at the moment suggests that this is a very close affair and I think the hosts will have the edge. « . ”
« The players prepared well in practice and the players who didn’t start the game on Saturday did a little more on Monday and they were fantastic with the effort they put in. « .
“That will be the key for us too; The guys who didn’t start the previous game need to make sure they are ready to come in.
« I’ve played against Neil Warnock’s teams many times. All you know is that it won’t be an easy game. His players will always work and run extremely hard.
« When you watch Middlesbrough you go man to man a lot, they can make it really difficult for you. It’s up to us to find out where the spaces and weaknesses are and take advantage of that. «
« I’m greedy and I look back and we could have won every game we played this season. We’ll keep clogging. We are not far away.
“You need to focus on what you think is best and look for the good things. You don’t always start a good run with a win, but with a couple of draws.
« If you lose or a run comes to an end, all you have to do is get out on the streets and earn points.
« Forget where Derby is in the league, they have a good squad. And when they lost in Bristol City on Saturday, they had 63% possession.
« They are all difficult games, regardless of whether they are against a new manager or whether they are at the top or bottom of the league. « . As a manager, I have to find solutions. ”
Usually games are available on the red button during the week, but this is not the case this week.
Sky’s contract with the EFL allows them to show every game in the originally scheduled 10 games during the week.
However, since the current campaign starts late, some game rounds that were planned for a weekend have been postponed to midweek – and Sky cannot display these games on the red button.
Fans will still be able to watch the Derby game, with Boro being able to stream the game on their Matchday Live service, and of course we will be blogging here continuously.
Winger Kamil Jozwiak missed Saturday’s 1-0 defeat in Bristol City with a minor ankle problem but was back in training on Monday.
Neil Warnock said yesterday that he did not expect to add anyone to the squad from the weekend for today’s game. That probably rules out Sam Morsy, who missed it while recovering from a hamstring injury. The Boro boss is not ready to risk him if he is not 100%.
Warnock said Duncan Watmore is rarely ready to play when needed, so there is the potential to see the ex-Sunderland man make his debut tonight.
Paddy McNair was tired of the Norwich defeat in the second half and was fired by the Boro boss on Monday. He was still showing up at Rockliffe for a massage, and Warnock praised his demeanor. He should be available for the evening despite Grant Hall making his return to the bench after his own injury on Saturday.
Furthermore, Warnock said his squad had a few blows from the weekend but, as is often the case, kept them under wraps, saying that all players would be evaluated before the game to make sure they are capable today Play evening.
Team news comes in at 6 p.m., but before that I considered three selection dilemmas that Neil Warnock faced ahead of the game – including Patrick Roberts.
