Middlesbrough – Sheff Wed Match Prediction | 28-09-2019 10:00

However, the Riverside Stadium outfit did remarkably well to win the League Cup trophy in 2004, with the team beating Bolton Wanderers in the final. George Boateng, Stewart Downing, Juninho Paulista, Gareth Southgate, Jonathan Woodgate, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, Tuncay Sanli and Hamilton Ricard are the star footballers who left their mark at Middlesbrough. Middlesbrough made it to the FA Cup final in 1997, but Chelsea proved to be a big catch for the Boro in the title game (0-2).

After spending three years at Burnley and Wolverhampton Fletcher signed a four-year deal with Sunderland for a fee of 12 million. He made his debut for the Scottish outfit on 10 April, 2004 in a 3-0 win over Kilmarnock. The left-footed attacker scored 11 goals in 28 appearances for the Black Cats in the 2012/2013 Premier League campaign and he was struggling in front of goal in the 2013/2014 season, scoring no more than three league goals.

In the last game before the international break, Middlesbrough suffered their first home loss of the season against Nottingham Forest, managed by their former boss Aitor Karanaka. For such a formidable team at home, it was the antithesis of their other performances, failing to score for only the fourth time this season and adding a third to their total goals conceded tally. In contrast, during the last four league matches, Middlesbrough have slipped up several times to raise some concerns about the team, though not too serious at this moment in time.

Form Summary

In order to sustain a promotion bid, the club has to improve on this and strikes like Assombalonga and Martin Braithwaite have to step up even more. These matches have raised the question of Middlesbroughs attacking potency. They may have scored in most games this season but their record of 14 goals scored after 12 matches is the joint-worst in the top-ten. In the top scorers chart, the team does not have a single representative, with striker Britt Assombalonga coming in at 23rd with four goals and no assists.

He now has 86 league goals since rejoining the Blades in 2015, and hes firing them to glory. While the visitors have firepower coming into this game, the hosts can boast the leagues top scorer. With 22 goals this season, hes a potent threat. The last three games have seen Sharp score six times in total, and hes a clinical finisher when given the chance. We expect him to grab a goal in this encounter, so were backing Sharp to score any time on top of our BTTS pick.

This had been in contrast to the first, in which Sheffield Wednesday were largely dominated by the home side. The latest was a 2-1 away victory at Bristol City before the international break, with substitute Lucas Joao coming off the bench to grab both goals in an impressive second-half display. Nonetheless, they managed to stun the hosts in a great show of character to not only take the lead but to hold onto it after Bristol pulled one back in the 80th minute. After an uncertain start to the season, Sheffield Wednesday have kicked into gear and picked up some impressive results in recent matches.

Only in one goalless draw at this venue did Sheffield kept a clean sheet against Middlesbrough at this venue. They conceded in every single game other than that, and at a rate of 2 goals per match. They have conceded goals in nine of their last ten fixtures on the road. Sheffield Wednesday is a team with not that much of defensive stability.

Theres a huge promotion clash at Bramall Lane this week, as Sheffield United host Middlesbrough. Can he fire them to success again on Wednesday night? Theyre among the form sides in the second tier, thanks to the scoring talents of forward Billy Sharp. The two are in the hunt for a top-two finish in the league this term, with the hosts pushing to jump into second in this clash.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Middlesbrough Stats

Thats a fine streak, and theyll be out to extend that fine form with a result in this clash. Wednesday isnt exactly a word which brings enthusiasm for Blades fans, but they have a fantastic record on this particular day of the week. Sheffield United are unbeaten in 12 home league games played on Wednesday (W9 D3) since losing 0-1 in March 1993 against Norwich City. However, they are likely to have issues from the Middlesbrough attack, who come into this game with some fine form in front of goal.

In all these games, Wednesday played some dynamic football and can take great heart from their capacity to compete against the top sides, despite being pegged back in all of them. With key players like star striker Fernando Forestieri and midfield playmaker Barry Bannan back fully fit from injury, the team looks like it has a strong basis to make a sustained play-off run and they look a formidable opponent at the moment.

That includes hitting three at West Brom, while they have scored in 10 of their last 11 on the road. Middlesbrough have seen both sides score in six of their last seven, so we think BTTS is value here, especially with the Blades coming off the back of a 3-3 thriller. We see them notching against the Blades, who have scored in 80% of their home matches. Middlesbrough come here having scored in their last seven trips.

A close encounter is on the horizon and seeing that both sides are likely to adopt a cautious approach in Fridays derby, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. The Owls proved their worth in the triumph over the Robins, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the Championship derby against Middlesbrough. Sheffield Wednesday will be looking to retain their spot in top six with a win over Middlesbrough at their Hillsborough Stadium. The Boro, on the other hand, suffered a 2-0 loss to Nottingham Forest on Matchday 12 and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the Sheffield Wednesday clash. It has to be noted that the two sides shared the spoils in their last meeting in the Championship. Sheffield Wednesday are undefeated in previous four league fixtures and they head into Fridays football game following a 2-1 win at Bristol City.
