Team News

Bristol City
Middlesbrough
  • Only one change is expected from new manager Liam Manning this weekend with Sam Bell pushing for a start out wide.
  • The Robins have seven confirmed absentees for the visit of Middlesbrough on Saturday.
  • Michael Carrick looks set to name an unchanged starting XI for the trip to Ashton Gate this weekend.
  • Tommy Smith and Marcus Forss are among five confirmed absentees for the away side heading into Saturday's game.

Prediction

  • Liam Manning's start to life as Bristol City manager was stable if unspectacular as he oversaw a cagey goalless draw against a QPR side who are now winless in 11 Championship outings. The Robins have won three of their last five home league games ahead of the visit of Middlesbrough, but injuries and the issue of a thin squad continue to hamper their consistency.
  • Middlesbrough returned to winning ways two weeks ago, and they did so in some style, beating league leaders Leicester 1-0 with a commanding home performance. Michael Carrick's men are unbeaten in five away from home and head into the weekend in 10th position, one place above their hosts.
