The two sides meet at Ewood Park on Saturday, with the home team searching for their first victory since a 1-0 win over Watford on October 1.
Two defeats and a draw came along for Blackburn after their victory, while Middlesbrough head into the clash on the back of a 4-0 hammering of Doncaster Rovers.

In terms of past meetings, Middlesbrough came out on top in both fixtures last season, while Blackburn have not grabbed a win over their opponents in their last five encounters.
