Recommended bets

Middlesbrough to win and BTTS (12/5)

Middlesbrough have to win to stand any chance of making the top six.

Chris Wilder’s team have won their last two matches and are now two points off the play-offs.

However, they have failed to keep a clean sheet in five of their last seven matches.

Match preview: Preston North End vs Middlesbrough

Preston North End are still chasing a top-half finish.

Ryan Lowe’s team are two points off 12th place.

The Lilywhites’ last outing saw them win 3-1 away at Barnsley.

Daniel Johnson netted a brace whilst Emil Riis Jakobsen also got on the scoresheet.

Preston haven’t been particularly impressive at Deepdale this season winning just a third of their games there.

Middlesbrough two points off the play-offs

Middlesbrough head into the final day of the season sat just two points off the play-offs.

Boro have the chance to catch both Luton Town and Sheffield United who are on 72 points.

Chris Wilder’s side need to win and then hope either Luton or Sheffield drop points.

Should Middlesbrough secure three points and either Luton or Sheffield fail to win, they would move into the top six.

However, the Hatters host Reading and the Blades are at home to Fulham, meaning dropped points are unlikely.
