Middlesbrough - Doncaster Rovers Betting Preview: Back both sides to find the back of the net

Mangerless Boro host Paul Dickov's side in the Championship on Friday, with our tipster Hugh Wilson backing both sides to find the net
After a poor start to the season Tony Mowbray was sacked as the manager of Middlesbrough this week.

Boro' welcome Doncaster Rovers to the Riverside Stadium on Friday evening, with both sides locked on 12 points in the league, only four points above Barnsley, who occupy the final relegation place.

Defeat against Barnsley last weekend proved to be the last straw in Mowbray's reign, with the Tykes running out 3-2 winners at Oakwell.

With only one win being recorded in their last 10 matches, Middlesbrough are struggling, with too many matches being drawn this season.

Betway, however, price them as favourites to win the clash at 4/5 (1.80).

Doncaster, like Middlesbrough, have had a tough start to the season after gaining promotion from League One last season.

Paul Dickov's side have ground out two decent victories in recent weeks, beating Sheffield Wednesday and Leicester City 1-0.

Despite these wins, Donny have lost over half of their Championship matches this season. Betway price them at 7/2 (4.50) to heap more misery on Middlesbrough. The same firm price the draw at 12/5 (3.40).

With the outright result tough to call with Boro' currently managerless and Doncaster hugely inconsistent, it's worth looking at the Both Teams to Score market to find the bet.

A common trait of Middlesbrough's home games this season has been goals. In each of their seven home matches this season, the both teams to score bet would have paid out.

When you also consider Doncaster have scored in four of their five away matches this season, it's certainly worth backing the 7/10 (1.70) price with Betway.
