Middlesbrough will be looking to bounce back from their defeat to West Ham this past weekend as they face Accrington Stanley in the fourth round of the FA Cup at the Riverside this Saturday. Our landlord here at the Transfer Tavern believes they can, for sure, prevent any kind of upset though they will have to play their best.
Boro suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Hammers in their last fixture at the Riverside, though perhaps the distraction of the cup can take some of the pressure off of Aitor Karanka. The Spaniard criticised the fans, though they will hope a convincing win over their League Two opposition can unite things somewhat.
We would imagine that the Spaniard will be taking this competition very seriously as a route, to not only a trophy, but the prospect of European football as well.
With that in mind, if Middlesbrough field this XI surely they will comfortably beat Accrington Stanley on Saturday.
