Middlesbrough VS Norwich match analysis

Norwich won on first of January in spite of many important absences. For this match away team recovers many important players, remain in doubt midf. Fox, while the only important player out is defender Ward (23 atts.), because other two absentees, midfielders Surman (6atts.) and Lansbury (4atts.) don't play a big role till now.. Middlesborough lost only one of last four matches (2-1-1), but gained two wins against Cardiff - that in spite of his big names seems has great difficulties in this period - and Preston - that since the start of the season seems very weak and occupy low part of table/relegation zone. Norwich is surely better, as shows his table position, and results show also that this team has no difficulties to win without important players, neither has an handicap in playing away. Infact Norwich has the third best away performances in Championship. And we must add to these considerations that home team for this match has a big loss. Infact apart lonterm missings Jonathan Franks (striker), Stephen McManus (def. 16atts), Willo Flood (midf. 1att), Rhys Williams (def.) and Matt Kilgallon (def. 3atts.), today they are also without topscorer McDonald ( striker 22atts+2 6goals), with Australian NT for asian games. Thomson (midf. 12atts.) is doubtful. Home team has a bad season and seems isn't able to find a way to start with gain better positions in table, alterning good and (more often) bad performances. Against a strong team and with one key ansence in attack i don't see them as winners today
