Middlesbrough will be hoping home support is at an all-time high this Saturday when they welcome Hull City in a must-win encounter. Catch all the live premier league action from the Riverside by tuning into the members area here at Live Sport Network.
Boro were stunned into submission last weekend when they lost 4-1 away to Bolton at the Reebok Stadium. Goals from Kevin Davies, Gary Cahill, Matthew Taylor and Ricardo Gardener canceled out Gary O'Neil's early equalizer and consigned Boro to the ninth successive away defeat of this season.
Manager Gareth Southgate is in a big rut and he knows the pressure will be on his side to get all three points from this encounter. Lately the Boro fans have been booing their side venting their frustration at their current position on the league table which is on the 19th spot with 27 points from 31 games.
Southgate has seven more games to save his job and his players need to respond. Just one win in their last 18 league games has not helped and visions of a revival after a stunning 2-0 win over Liverpool were quickly quashed.
Meanwhile Hull City are not out of the relegation battle although they are relatively well placed on the league table. The Tigers have 34 points from 31 games and occupy the 15th spot on the table. A couple of bad games could still see them battle for survival as the season nears its end.
Over the weekend, Hull failed to capitalize on a one-man advantage at the KC Stadium and were held to a 0-0 draw by Portsmouth. Pompey were reduced to 10 men in the second half when Glen Johnson was sent off for a second bookable offence.
Manager Phil Brown will be boosted by the return of Michael Turner, Kamil Zayatte, Andy Dawson and Ian Ashbee from injuries. But Daniel Cousin remains a doubtful starter with a back injury.
