World News – UK – Boro v Millwall LIVE: Updates and Analysis


. .

Boro excelled last time on home turf, beating Swansea, but Neil Warnock’s side then lost at Stoke and Preston.

But the visiting Lions are nine without a championship win, and Boro wants to add to Gary Rowett’s suffering.

Warnock must decide how to replace Jonny Howson, who has been banned for up to a month.

Boro was an impressive 2-0 winner when these teams last met at the end of last season.

A repeated goal line would do the trick well as Boro tries to find some momentum again and close the gap under the top six.

Akpom remains all alone in the center of the box and is found with a free kick from the left, but his fleeting header goes wide.

His curling set piece was meant for the top corner, just for Bialkowski to save with one hand.

Both goals were about making sure he was in the right place at the right time. This is what Warnock wanted his strikers to do.

First, Watmore, the striker instinctively comes in the right place at the right time to poke Johnson’s cross home.

Then, within two minutes, Tavernier interferes from the right and turns home in the farthest corner.

McNair is above it again, but this time Tavernier has a rift and prevents his exertion.

Millwall sits deep and takes the pressure, but all of the property benefits the hosts.

Boro looks lively upstairs too, with lots of movement and energy from Watmore and Akpom

Boro won a free kick at least 35 meters away and the home players packed around the penalty area.

McNair, however, opted for a rift from a distance. It would have taken some effort to score from there. He pulled the shot far.

Chuba Akpom just won a movie and it looked like it was too much to ask Watmore to get there. But the striker cracked it.

He has just been hit to the ball by the Millwall keeper on the edge of the field.

He tried to feed Johnson on his left, but the winger slipped at the wrong time.

Duncan Watmore plays a central role in Chuba Akpom. Tavernier starts on the right and Johnson starts on the left.

Back at home, where they have shown their best form this season, they could really use a win after two disappointing losses in the last seven days.

Millwall couldn’t handle a victory of their own after none of nine for the Londoners, with manager Gary Rowett lamenting his side’s lack of goals as a problem.

That sounds very familiar to me and on a cold day by the river we could do without a boring draw!

Duncan Watmore starts today for the first time in 14 months in a straight week and last time on Riverside he scored both in a 2-1 win over Swansea.

With his deal in mid-January, the games are running out for him to establish himself as a Boro player in the long term. So you can imagine that he wants to impress with every chance he gets.

Marcus Tavernier also returns to the starting XI after his loss to Preston. Boro has missed his energy, but he needs to start developing an end product.

Finally, Dijksteel’s return from injury is a welcome boost for Boro. You definitely missed him in the back.

It was a frustrating night for him in Deepdale when he struggled to get into the game. But the last time he beat Swansea he had blisters on the riverside.

It will be interesting to see if he starts on the right or central in support of Akpom, Tavernier on the right.

At first glance it looks like a similar form: Dijksteel is right-back and Tavernier is in midfield.

Musical chairs continue to go up and Akpom returns to Assombalonga. One of the strikers has to do enough to convince Warnock they are worth a run on the team.

This week the manager talked about how he likes Boro in a 3-5-2 form, but with Anfernee Dijksteel still having doubts, the manager’s options are limited. He could bring Marc Bola in, but against physical and direct Millwall that would be a bit of a surprise.

Marvin Johnson is a likely starter, he was the only player Warnock picked for praise after Preston.

Up? The manager was disappointed with the representations of Akpom and Assombalonga for the past week.
