Match preview

Two Championship clubs in the midst of altogether contrasting spells of form are set to lock horns at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday, December 10th.

The clash in question will see a Middlesbrough outfit on the up act as hosts, in a meeting with faltering Luton Town.

Middlesbrough, of course, stood as one of the English 2nd tier’s standout sides in the weeks leading into the World Cup break.

This came as the Teessiders, forced into the thick of the relegation battle across the bulk of the season to date, embarked on a stellar stretch of ten points secured from an available twelve.

Impressive downings of both Hull City and Blackpool were followed most recently by a head-turning victory over Norwich, clinched by Matt Crooks deep into injury time.

Such form has come largely owing to the influence of new boss Michael Carrick, enjoying an altogether impressive first foray into management to date.

Boro, in turn, have climbed to 15th in the Championship standings, a full four points clear of the bottom three.

Safe to say, then, that spirits will no doubt be high in the camp heading into Saturday’s action in Yorkshire.

Turning attentions towards the upcoming visitors to the Riverside Stadium, unlike their hosts-to-be, Luton have endured an altogether tough time of things of late.

The Hatters do sit four spots clear of Middlesbrough at present, enjoying the comforts of mid-table.

However, their form prior to the international break proved altogether less than impressive.

After remaining unbeaten across seven fixtures between mid-September and October, Luton since managed just a solitary victory from their last six attempts.

Their most recent outing, meanwhile, saw the Bedfordshire-based outfit require a last-gasp Luke Berry equaliser to clinch a share of the spoils in a home meeting with relegation-battling Rotherham United.

A change on the bench, of course, has since been forthcoming at Kenilworth Road, with Rob Edwards having taken up the reins on the back of the departure of Nathan Jones.

Should Middlesbrough continue to perform in a similar manner to recent weeks, though, then Luton certainly appear to face an uphill task in emerging with anything other than a defeat on Saturday afternoon.
