Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Sheff Wed vs Middlesbrough lineups.

Sheff Wed

Wednesday lost yet again on Saturday when edged 0-1 at home by Ipswich. The Owls were once again very timid and only a string of fine saves from their goalie Vasquez prevented further damage. 

With only 1 point from 6 games, Wednesday find it hard on their return to the Championship after promotion. They failed to score in 3 of the last 4 rounds and unless they find a way to be more efficient in attack the results won’t change. 

Centre-back Iorfa got hurt in the last match and could be absent now. He’s important and hard to replace. 

Recently signed Fletcher and Hendrick could start though. Especially, with all of Bannan, Diabo and Vaulks considered doubtful right now. They all missed the Saturday game and will find it hard to be back on time as early as Tuesday. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Vasquez (GK), Paterson, Famewo, Bernard, Palmer, Delgado, Musaba, Hendrick, Byers, Gregory & Fletcher 

Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough sit last after 6 rounds with a single point. Boro thought they’d doubled their tally on Saturday but in the end, lost 1-2 away vs Blackburn. Conceded 12 goals in the last 5 rounds and right now the confidence of the back line is very low. 

Rotation can be expected as the gaffer seeks improved displays. Fit-again McNair should start once more in defence. Smith also could be considered from the off after recovering from injury. 

Still missing a bunch of decent players but the only really important one is the influential centre-back Dijksteel. He’s joined in the treatment room by his main cover option Bangura, the latter got hurt on Saturday and won’t be playing now. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Dieng (GK), Smith, McNair, Lenihan, Engel, O'Brien, Howson, Forss, Crooks, McGree & Latte-Lath

Player to Watch: Paddy McNair

Middlesbrough’s experienced centre-back Paddy McNair is fully fit again and expected to start. The only way Boro could turn their fortunes around is if they start defending better. This is what McNair does best so we back him to play a key role in the coming match.
