Middlesbrough finally appear to be finding their feet in the Sky Bet Championship under Garry Monk, and they are looking to continue their rise through the division against Norwich City this week.
Saturday’s battling performance at Fulham saw Boro move into the Championship’s play-off zone, with the Teessiders now unbeaten in their last seven fixtures across all competitions.
Norwich are also in a good run of form heading into the clash with Boro, with Daniel Farke seemingly getting to grips with the Championship and taking his side on a four match unbeaten run.
The Canaries have eight points from those four fixtures, which have helped the club climb through the division.
After a solid performance in a 0-0 draw with Bristol City, Norwich will be hoping they can keep a fifth consecutive clean sheet when travelling to the Riverside Stadium on Tuesday.
However, Farke’s side will face a difficult task against Boro, who are looking to return to winning ways, having picked up a valuable point against Fulham over the weekend.
Boro are impressing without playing their best football, and there is a feeling that it is only a matter of time before Monk’s side really get hold of the Championship’s promotion race.
Monk’s squad is looking strong, and we are expecting them to turn on the style against Norwich this week, ending the Canaries’ good run.
FLW Prediction: Middlesbrough 3 – 1 Norwich City
