Hull City v Middlesbrough - Sky Bet Championship
Middlesbrough will host Luton on Saturday - Sky Bet Championship

Middlesbrough will host Luton Town at the Riverside on Saturday in another round of EFL Championship football.

The home side enjoyed a difficult start to their season but have begun to string together results under new boss Michael Carrick. They picked up a 2-1 comeback win over Norwich City in their last league outing, with Riley McGree and Matt Crooks getting on the scoresheet in the second half to overturn an early deficit.

Middlesbrough sit 15th in the league table with 27 points from 21 games. They will aim to build on their newfound form and continue their push for the top half of the pile.

Luton have had mixed results this season but still have their sights set on the playoff spots as they begin life under manager Rob Edwards. They played out a 1-1 draw against newly-promoted Rotherham United, with Luke Berry coming off the bench to score a late equalizer.

The visitors sit mid-table in 11th place with 30 points from 21 games. They will now be looking to shake off their latest results and get their campaign back on track this weekend.
