How we calculate our stats

Their penultimate home match against Preston saw them give more away at the back, though given that they created a pleasing 2.23 expected goals for, they offered a good amount going forward. In terms of recent results, Boro, whove now lost three on the bounce on their own patch, have been struggling at home, though most of their performances prior to losing against the current league leaders werent bad at all. Against both QPR and Brentford, Pulis men looked reasonably sturdy at the back, while they created more going forward, bettering both of those opponents in terms of expected goals.

Against a side that imposed themselves on the game far more than Boro, Pulis men, who created a reasonably weak 0.97 expected goals for, struggled to forge clear-cut openings, while as they conceded 1.76 expected goals, they werent too great at the back either. Their defeat was a narrow one, though Middlesbrough could have few complaints with the result, as they were beaten by Norwich on home soil last time out.

Goal Timings

Bristol City do not want to give up on their play-offs dream, but they need to continue with fine performances in the season finale if they are to secure a top-six finish. Middlesbrough, though, have been producing fine performances at home this term, which is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on Tony Pulis' troops. The Robins, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Birmingham City and they managed to get one. Middlesbrough aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Sheffield United, but they will have to do it without suspended midfielder Grant Leadbitter, who was sent off in the midweek fixture. Anyhow, the Boro aim to regain their spot in top six and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Bristol City on Matchday 43. Riverside Stadium will host Saturday's football game between Middlesbrough and Bristol City, the two teams who are eyeing a place in the play-offs.

However, the Riverside Stadium outfit did remarkably well to win the League Cup trophy in 2004, with the team beating Bolton Wanderers in the final. George Boateng, Stewart Downing, Juninho Paulista, Gareth Southgate, Jonathan Woodgate, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, Tuncay Sanli and Hamilton Ricard are the star footballers who left their mark at Middlesbrough. Middlesbrough made it to the FA Cup final in 1997, but Chelsea proved to be a big catch for the Boro in the title game (0-2).

Bristol City did well to beat Hull City at KCOM Stadium at the weekend and thanks to the triumph they cemented their spot in top six. Bristol City and Middlesbrough face each other at Ashton Gate Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Saturdays program. The Robins quickly bounced back from a shocking 2-1 loss to Preston and they are now on a quest to start a new winning run at their Ashton Gate Stadium. Bristol City emerged triumphant in each of their previous three meetings in the English second tier and, taking everything into account, home win should be considered. Middlesbrough, on the other hand, suffered a disappointing 3-0 loss to Derby County in front of home fans at the weekend and, as a result, they are not sitting in the play-offs berth ahead of the trip to Bristol.

Scottish First Division

A positive average expected goal difference is not something that Bristol City currently have away from home, as theyve generally struggled to be at their creative best on the road. They may have scored three goals at Bramall Lane on Saturday, though as they created just 0.77 expected goals for (and conceded 1.3), its easy to feel that they were fortunate to both notch three times and come out on top. An improved showing will be needed if theyre to get a result at the Riverside.

Both Saturdays game against Sheffield United and their recent away match against Norwich showed that Lee Johnsons men are effective offensively in open games, but theyve found it harder to create against more pragmatic sides, which doesnt exactly bode well ahead of a match against a Middlesbrough side that will have no problem sitting deep and keeping things compact. Bristol City have had no shortage of good results away from home, though some of their efforts suggest that they could struggle against a side of Boros nature.
