Middlesbrough awaiting Sheffield Wednesday in 24th round of English Championship. Middlesbrough is in good form and currently are at 2nd position at the table with one point and one match less than 1st placed Derby. Middlesbrough must go for a victory here to reclaim their first position and try to finally return into Premier league after 7 seasons. In previous season they reached play offs for promotion but in final round were defeated by Norwich. Middlesbrough is playing great football, they are among most effective teams in league with 33 goals scored while their defense is best in league and so far conceded only 12 goals in 23 rounds. In previous six rounds they achieved five victories and got one draw, most recently they celebrated against Brighton on the road 0:3. They are playing really great in this campaign, especially at home where they suffered only one narrow defeat against Bristol City while in seven home matches in Championship managed to keep a clean sheet. Middlesbrough will for sure give their best to achieve another positive outcome in front of their fans and continue with good results in order to find their ticket for promotion into Premier league for the next season.
Sheffield Wednesday on the other hand is currently at 7th position at the table, they also showed good performances so far and for sure will try to reach at least 6th place and try to win their promotion in play offs. They are coming to this match after two convincing victories, most recently in last round against Birmingham 3:0 at home and against Wolves 4:1, also at home while before that had series of four matches without victory. So far they suffered five defeats in league and only one was at home, in their first duel against Middlesbrough, they have actually positive record against them and that was first defeat after four victories and one draw. They are also playing good offensive football and so far scored 35 goals while they didn't impressed with their defensive skills and conceded 27 goals in 23 rounds. Sheffield showed decent performances in this season and they will for achieve good results if continue to play on same level like so far but now must show really outstanding performances to earn some points against maybe strongest teams in league in this campaign.
Middlesbrough are favorites here, they are coming here after series of good results and must go for a victory to reclaim leading position, while Sheffield is also in decent form, they are at decent 7th position and for sure are able to achieve positive result here, this will for sure be interesting match between two teams which are among most effective in league and I believe that hosts will achieve another three points at home.
