On the other hand, 10th-placed Middlesbrough could move to within three points of their opponents if they can add another three points to their recent collection.

At one stage this season, Blackburn Rovers were at the top of the table when Middlesbrough were dealing with the bottom three, but such is the dynamic of the Championship that the situation has now changed.

Middlesbrough will now move to within touching distance of their third-placed opponents with a victory at Ewood Park, a consequence of Blackburn losing for the 11th time in 24 league matches on Boxing Day.

Just it appeared that Rovers would finally record their first draw in the second tier during 2022-23, Ellis Simms scored an added-time winner for the Black Cats at the Stadium of Light.

Helped by defeats for Watford and Norwich City, Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side have remained in third position, but there is now an eight-point gap to the automatic promotion spots.

As many as 16 points have been collected from eight matches since the arrival of Michael Carrick at Middlesbrough, his fifth victory coming by a 4-1 scoreline over Wigan Athletic on Boxing Day.

Chuca kpom has been impressive under Carrick’s guidance, the well-travelled forward’s hat-trick in that game taking him to eight goals from as many appearances.

With any thoughts about relegation now a thing of the past, Middlesbrough can attack trying to achieve a playoff place, and it is currently hard to back against them even though they sit in 10th position.

The one negative of Carrick’s reign is a lack of clean sheets, with just one shutout coming at Blackpool during the early stages of his reign.

Blackbunr Rovers Team News

Tomasson will hope to call upon at least some of the trio of Tyrhys Dolan, Sammie Szmodics and Jack Vale after they all missed Blackburn’s match at Sunderland.

Having only been used as a substitute in that game, Lewis Travis is in line to return to the midfield for the hosts.

Middlesbrough Team News

Middlesbrough could be forced into one change after Jonny Howson suffered a head injury during the Wigan Athletic game, resulting in his half-time withdrawal.

Alex Mowatt should return in central midfield, and Carrick may decide to recall Riley McGree after handing the playmaker a rest from the starting lineup last time out.
