How does Middlesbrough boss Neil Warnock's record compare against former clubs including Leeds United, Sheffield United, QPR, Cardiff City, Burton Albion & Huddersfield Town

It’s an important night for both Middlesbrough and Neil Warnock this evening as they welcome Sheffield United to the Riverside.

Boro have won just one of their previous seven Championship games as the pressure begins to mount on Warnock on Teesside.

A limp defeat to Reading at the weekend left Boro 18th in the table with nine points from their opening nine games of the season.

But the game against the Blades, who sealed a late win over Derby County thanks to Billy Sharp’s penalty on Saturday, has an added spice to it with Warnock going up against the club he helped guide to the Premier League back in 2006.

United are one of many clubs Warnock has managed throughout his over 40-year spell in management.

It means more often than not each season Warnock will come up against some regular foes from his resume and we wondered just what his winning record was like when coming up against those sides?

Here at The Mail we’ve taken a look back at the Boro boss’ last 22-years in management since joining tonight’s opponents Sheffield United in early December 1999.

We’ve looked at every time he has come up against a former side in each of those seasons right up until his most recent encounter with Queens Park Rangers at the Riverside last month to see which of those sides he tends to fair well against and those he does not.

For reference, we have only considered games against teams after he has managed that club.
