Middlesbrough vs Huddersfield Town match preview

Two sides with sights set on a first points haul of the Championship campaign are set to lock horns at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday, August 19th.

The matchup in question will see Middlesbrough act as hosts, in a meeting with Huddersfield Town.

Beginning with the former, Middlesbrough’s early-season efforts to position themselves back in the promotion playoff picture have gotten off to a dismal start.

First, an opening day meeting with Millwall saw Michael Carrick’s troops put to the sword by a solitary goal.

And this was followed last weekend by a 2nd defeat on the spin, on this occasion in altogether more concerning fashion.

A trip to England’s west Midlands to take on Coventry City saw Boro, for lengthy stretches, hold their own.

A lack of cutting edge in the absence of the since-departed Chuba Akpom, however, proved costly, en route to an eventual 3-0 drubbing.

All told, Middlesbrough, as a result, find themselves sitting dead bottom of the table in England’s 2nd tier.

Safe to say, though, that the upcoming visitors to the Riverside have not exactly fared much better over the season’s early weeks.

Huddersfield, too, were condemned to defeat in both of their first two fixtures, by a combined scoreline of four goals to one.

An opening day trip to promoted Plymouth Argyle saw Neil Warnock’s men drag themselves back into proceedings courtesy of Michal Helik’s equaliser on the stroke of the interval, only for a pair of late goals to culminate in a 3-1 loss.

And the Terriers’ search for a swift bounce-back result last weekend proved to be in vain, as a solitary strike on the part of Stephy Mavididi proved enough to guide Leicester City to a narrow victory at the John Smith’s Stadium.

So, all of this considered, how do we at 101 envision Saturday’s action in Yorkshire unfolding?

It is worth noting that today’s clash will actually mark the 2nd between Middlesbrough and Huddersfield this season, after the two sides were pitted against one another in the EFL Cup last week.

On that occasion, it was Boro who emerged on the right side of the result, and we are backing a similar outcome this time round at the Riverside.
