Middlesbrough Preview – Back-to-back wins for Boro?

Middlesbrough were very much in the mix for promotion a few weeks back, but their poor form coupled with Barnsley and Bournemouth’s excellent form has put paid to any late play-off dreams. The Reds will be eyeing up a top-half finish, though.

Middlesbrough came from behind to beat Rotherham United 2-1 in midweek, doing Sheffield Wednesday a favour in the process. George Saville and Chuba Akpom go the goals against the ten-man Millers at the New York Stadium. Prior to that, Boro had lost four and drawn one of five.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1210 GMT, Friday 23 April)

Middlesbrough have struggled at home since the turn of the year, losing six of 11 in the league. In their previous home fixture, Mark Warburton’s in-form Queens Park Rangers left the Riverside Stadium with a 2-1 victory. Still, can Boro seal back-to-back wins on Saturday?

Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Can the Owls build on the midweek win?

Sheffield Wednesday have had a season to forget, losing 22 of their 43 matches. The points deduction has not helped their cause, but the Owls have struggled for wins all season long.

Wednesday are in 23rd spot with just three games left to play. Darren Moore’s men are four points behind 21st-placed Derby County and are level with Rotherham, who still have two games in hand. The next couple of weeks are huge in the history of this famous football club.

Middlesbrough have nothing but pride to play for, which could be a dangerous sign for Sheffield Wednesday. The shackles are off for Warnock’s men, and the players will want to impress their boss in the last few remaining games of the season.

Sheffield Wednesday nicked the points when the pair met at Hillsborough in December, with Callum Paterson scoring the winner against his former boss. However, we are backing Boro to return the favour this weekend, and the 2-1 home victory is generously priced at 17/2.

Ex-Sunderland striker Duncan Watmore has been a bright light for Middlesbrough since breaking into the team. The 27-year-old always gives 100%, and he was on the scoresheet when the pair met at Hillsborough at the end of last year. Watmore is priced at 5/2 to score first in this one.
