Sheffield United to win again

People say you can't read anything into pre-season results; it's true. Middlesbrough were winning plenty of matches before the season got underway. Now they have just two wins in 10 across all competitions and have lost two on the spin. Sheffield United meanwhile have found their groove after a less than perfect start to the campaign. They are unbeaten in seven and have won four of those games. It's been a while since they won on Teeside but these runs always end eventually; there hasn't been a better chance than this.

Someone could easily fail to score

There were plenty of concerns raised at the start of the season about where Sheffield United's goals would come from with the club struggling to find the net for the opening few weeks. The Blades have started to notch now but given Middlesbrough's lack of offensive power their best way to a result here is going to be an organised approach with the intention of nicking a goal. It might not work but it won't lead to a match that sees both teams having massive chances; we see someone failing to score.

Not a game the neutrals should be excited about

Following on from our previous tip we also don't see this match being loaded with goals. The reasoning behind that is the same. It's not all in our heads though; Middlesbrough have averaged a total of 2.2 goals per game in the league this season with Sheffield United's away games serving up a tame average of 2.0. The game in unlikely to enthral so why not place a bet that might?

Middlesbrough vs Sheffield United: A quick team overview

With Onel Hernandez joining Sammy Ameobi on the side lines it's fair to say Neil Warnock is bemoaning more than just his teams form as they struggle to string results together. They need to find an attacking threat but where is it going to come from? Uche Ikpeazu leads the teams scoring charts with two but can barely get a kick of the ball at the moment. Sheffield United won't want to hear excuses of injuries though; they've had their fair share to contend with. The list looks to be shortening now though with several names potentially back in the mix for Tuesday. The most notable is Sander Berge; he might not get back in the team though with the Blades looking sharp of late.
