Burnley and Boro set for tense first half

Burnley will be hoping to deepen Middlesbrough's woes

Premier League
3pm Saturday

Middlesbrough fans were desperate for a more positive approach under caretaker boss Steve Agnew but Wednesday’s 4-2 defeat at Hull suggests Boro haven’t found the right balance between attack and defence.

Visitors Burnley are set up to frustrate their opponents away from home. Only Hull have scored fewer away goals than the Clarets’ tally of nine but Sean Dyche’s men can ensure a tense afternoon at the Riverside.
