Middlesbrough v Peterborough United: Is it on TV? Are there tickets? What are the odds? What is the team news?

Middlesbrough return to Championship action this weekend for the first of two crucial encounters at the Riverside for boss Neil Warnock.

Tuesday, 12th October 2021, 3:48 pm

Boro welcome Peterborough United on Saturday before they host fellow strugglers Barnsley in midweek as they look to take back hold of their stuttering season.

Boro slipped to defeat at Hull City last time out thanks to two late goals form Mallick Wilks and a Joe Lumley own goal as they once again failed to capitalise on a win in their previous game.

Warnock has come in for increased scrutiny from the Boro supporters and will be under no illusions as to the importance of Saturday’s meeting with the Posh.

Is there any team news ahead of Middlesbrough v Peterborough United?

The Boro boss still has a number of injury concerns, particularly in defence, heading into the weekend with Anfernee Dijksteel, Darnell Fisher, Dael Fry and Grant Hall all set to miss out at the Riverside.

Back-up defender Lee Peltier will also be ruled out having picked up a fifth yellow card in the defeat at Hull last time out as Warnock described the injury picture as ‘bleak’ before the international break.

The Boro boss will be hoping he receives no further bad news from those away on international duty - including Paddy McNair who returned from September’s international break with an injury.

Meanwhile Peterborough will be without striker Jonson Clarke-Harris after the club decided against an appeal over a four match ban for derogatory social media posts made by the 27-year-old a number of years ago.
