Middlesbrough's winless run was extended to five games last weekend, as Neil Warnock's side lost 2-1 to Derby County at Pride Park, despite dominating possession against the Rams.

The result sees Boro head into the midweek matches six points off the play-off places, and will face stiff competition from a rejuvenated Cardiff City side in the chase of sixth place Bournemouth, who currently occupy the final play-off spot.

Tonight, Middlesbrough will look to get back to winning ways, when they take on Carlos Corberan's Huddersfield Town at the Riverside Stadium.

The visitors are in even worse form than Boro, without a win in eight matches, and Warnock will be hoping his side can use the Terriers' low morale to their advantage and pick up the three points on home turf.

Speaking ahead of the game, Warnock revealed he's been impressed with midfielder Marcus Browne' s change in attitude, and claimed: “I was really pleased with Marcus and his attitude, I think he’s probably the most changed professional at the club in my eyes."

“When I first came I thought his attitude was rubbish and as far as I was concerned he could have gone anywhere.

“To be fair to him he came back in pre-season and changed our minds, the ability, his training, everything he did was positive."
