Sheffield United to edge it

There isn't loads to choose between these teams in general terms but home advantage will be critical and that means we see Sheffield United running out winners. On their on patch, Middlesbrough are flying but away from home it has been a very different story; they haven't won in five on the road and have lost three of those games – including the last two. The Blades home form over the last five meanwhile reads as three wins and two draws. They've beaten Boro in three of their last four meetings at Bramall Lane too.

Both sides will bag goals

We might have backed Middlesbrough to lose this game but we do expect them to score. Results on the road haven't gone their way of late but they have scored in each of their last four away games. Sheffield United meanwhile have scored in four of their last five at home. With both teams in good form generally this should be a good game and, for us, that means goals at both ends.

Sheffield United vs Middlesbrough: Check out the team lineups

With these teams currently sat in sixth and seventh position in the Championship table it's needless to say that the result here could have huge ramifications as we enter the final stretch of the campaign. For the winner, it will be a real boost but, for the loser, it will be a gut punch to their chances.

Sheffield United Predicted Lineup

Sheffield United are currently sat outside the playoff places with just one point fewer than their visitors. A win here would see them break into the top sixth and, depending on results elsewhere, could see them jump into fourth. That's easier said than done though and a defeat would see a gap start to open up.

Predicted XI – Foderingham, Davies, Egan, Robinson, Seriki, Norwood, Fleck, Norrington-Davies, Berge, Gibbs-White, Sharp

Middlesbrough Predicted Lineup

As we've said, Middlesbrough sit narrowly ahead of Sheffield United. A defeat wouldn't be the end of the world for their promotion chances – certainly not mathematically. What it would potentially do though is plant a seed of doubt about their capabilities to go on and win promotion. Even a draw would avoid that.

Predicted XI – Lumley, Dijksteel, McNair, Fry, Jones, Taylor, Crooks, Howson, Tavernier, Balogun, Watmore
