Middlesbrough's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Boro have conceded a disappointing 7 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.
Cardiff City's away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. The games have constituted a decent return of 13 goals for the Bluebirds, and 5 goals against.
Middlesbrough's 29 points from 20 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position. Cardiff City are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 33 points from 20 games.
