Preston v Middlesbrough: How to watch, TV channel, head-to-head stats & team news

Preston v Middlesbrough is set to be an intriguing battle in the Championship in midweek, with the 10th-placed Lilywhites just four points above 13th-placed Boro in the table.

Ryan Lowe's Preston have been in decent form of late, losing just one of their last five Championship fixtures against high-flying Leeds, and are likely to go into their home meeting against Middlesbrough confident of picking up the three points.

Visitors Boro have contrastingly struggled for results recently having won just one of their last five league matches, and manager Michael Carrick will be desperate to see an upturn in form quickly starting with the trip to Preston.
