Boro are languishing deep in the relegation zone at the 19th spot with 26 points from 28 games. If it comes to a scrap, the Riversiders do not have a good goal difference as well posting a dismal minus 20 so far. However Middlesbrough managed to raise hopes of survival when they beat Liverpool 2-0.
That euphoria was promptly doused the following week by Harry Redknapp's Tottenham Hotspur, who defeated them 4-0 thanks to a brace from Aaron Lennon and goals from Robbie Keane and Roman Pavlyuchenko. Manager Gareth Southgate would have been bitterly disappointed with his side's performance. That disappointment deepened on Sunday when his side let go of a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 to Everton in the FA Cup. Injury-wise, Southgate has no new worries ahead of this game although Mohammad Shawky will need to pass a late fitness test, while Didier Digard and Chris Riggott remain long-term absentees.
Portsmouth are also involved in a battle for survival although they are placed just above the relegation zone at the 17th spot with 28 points from 27 games. Pompey have had a miserable season by all accounts following the departure of Harry Redknapp.
The club has also sacked Tony Adams after a string of unsuccessful results and have appointed caretaker manager Paul Hart and his assistant Brian Kidd for the remainder of the season. Last fortnight Pompey lost 1-0 to Chlesea with Didier Drogba scoring the winner. That loss deepened the plight of fans as they fear Pompey could drop to the Championship.
With just 10 games to go, Portsmouth need to start conjuring up some wins and Hart will hope they can do it against Boro. Papa Bouba Diop remains a long-term injury concern for Portsmouth, but otherwise the manager should have a full squad at his disposal.
