Sheffield Utd to Win

While Sheffield United is currently second in the standings and Middlesbrough third, the difference between them is ten points and this is probably a last chance for the guests to get closer to Sheffield in the battle for direct promotion.

However, we see the opposite happening since we expect Sheffield Utd to win the match and increase the points advantage over Middlesbrough. After all, they have eight wins in the last ten games and they are hosting the game, which should be enough for a win.

Sheffield Utd – Middlesbrough Preview: Form, News, and Potential Lineups

This is the derby of the round for a good reason, so let's take a better look at both teams and our expected Sheffield Utd vs Middlesbrough lineups ahead of their duel on Wednesday:

Sheffield Utd

With eight wins and two draws in the last ten games in Championship, Sheffield Utd has been in great form recently and they are the only team that's somewhat able to threaten Burnley, who is currently seven points ahead. In any case, barring any surprise and huge drops in form, Sheffield United should be back in Premier League next season.

Meanwhile, Jack O'Connell, Norrington-Davies, Rhian Brewster, Enda Stevens, George Baldock, and Tommy Doyle are out with injuries.

Sheffield Utd Predicted Lineup:

Foderingham – Ahmedhodzic, Egan, Robinson – Bogle, Berge, Norwood, McAtee, Lowe – McBurnie, Ndiaye

Middlesbrough

After winning seven of their last nine matches in the league, Middlesbrough rose up the standings and now they are third in the table, only behind Burnley and their next opponent Sheffield Utd. That being said, Middlesbrough is ten points behind Sheffield, so they really need a win in this game if they want to keep hope of direct promotion alive, but at the very least, playoffs seem very realistic.

When it comes to team news, Aaron Ramsey and Matt Clarke are out with injuries at the moment.

Middlesbrough Predicted Lineup:

Steffen – Smith, McNair, Lenihan, Giles – Hackney, Howson – McGree, Forss – Archer, Akpom

Championship Standings

Player to Watch: Iliman Ndiaye

This is a very interesting duel between two teams hoping to earn promotion to Premier League, so clearly we had a tough task to choose just one player as our player to watch. In the end, we decided to go with Iliman Ndiaye.
