Meet the opposition

Middlesbrough currently sit fifth in the Sky Bet Championship on 58 points, however they are only one point ahead of Preston North End who are sitting just outside the play-off places.

The Boro have been in and around the play-offs and automatic promotion positions so far this season, but have slipped in recent weeks, losing each of their last three games.

Manager Tony Pulis took charge of the team in December 2017 replacing Garry Monk. Prior to that Pulis had got a reputation of keeping teams up in the Premier League, whilst also winning the Premier League Manager of the Year award for his heroics at Crystal Palace in 2014.

The last time Norwich and Middlesbrough met was at Carrow Road in September, when Teemu Pukki’s first half goal proved to be the winner in what was a game that proved to be the catalyst for City to push on.

Boro’s top goalscorer so far this season is Britt Assombalonga with ten goals, but Middlesbrough’s form man is Ashley Fletcher who has found the net in three of his last four starts.
