HYS: Will reverting to a back three help Middlesbrough regain consistency?

Middlesbrough blitzed their way through the first few games of the season as they won four of their opening six Championship matches.

Tony Pulis may have lost some key players in the summer transfer window, but his team played with a confidence that helped them kickstart the campaign.

The club have lost just twice in 12 league matches, but their most recent outing was one of those defeats.

On home soil, Boro were beaten 2-0 by Nottingham Forest, which has given Pulis plenty to think about during the international break.

One such item on the agenda could be the defensive shape, which is currently a traditional back four.

At the start of the season, though, when Pulis was struggling with squad depth, he implemented a back three, which allowed full-backs to push up.

It proved to be an effective method, but one that has been lost over the last few weeks.

Would moving back to a three-man defence help Boro in upcoming matches?
