Boro finally started showing their quality this week with a resounding 4-1 win over Wigan on Wednesday night. That was after going a goal down, which shows there is fight left in this group, however, they do need to appoint a manager soon if they are to kick on from this result, with talks over Miachel Carrick being very stop-start. Fans know Steve Gibson needs to resolve the issue before next weekend’s game.
They will go into this clash managerless and will hope for a similar result. As expected, they are strong favourites against Huddersfield who are languishing at the bottom of the table. Bookies are pricing the home win at 8/11.
The Terriers look like they will be in League One next season, with just 11 points from 14 games leaving them five points from safety. Last time out they narrowly lost to Preston at home, which they can’t afford to do too many more times if they are to avoid finding themselves in real trouble.
Unsurprisingly, they go into this game as firm outsiders, with most bookies pricing the away win at 7/2. Terriers fans will desperately be hoping their side can upset the odds and gain a much-needed three points at the Riverside.
