Middlesbrough – Sheff Wed Match Prediction | 28-09-2019 10:00

Thats a fine streak, and theyll be out to extend that fine form with a result in this clash. Wednesday isnt exactly a word which brings enthusiasm for Blades fans, but they have a fantastic record on this particular day of the week. Sheffield United are unbeaten in 12 home league games played on Wednesday (W9 D3) since losing 0-1 in March 1993 against Norwich City. However, they are likely to have issues from the Middlesbrough attack, who come into this game with some fine form in front of goal.

Theres a huge promotion clash at Bramall Lane this week, as Sheffield United host Middlesbrough. Can he fire them to success again on Wednesday night? Theyre among the form sides in the second tier, thanks to the scoring talents of forward Billy Sharp. The two are in the hunt for a top-two finish in the league this term, with the hosts pushing to jump into second in this clash.

After spending three years at Burnley and Wolverhampton Fletcher signed a four-year deal with Sunderland for a fee of 12 million. The left-footed attacker scored 11 goals in 28 appearances for the Black Cats in the 2012/2013 Premier League campaign and he was struggling in front of goal in the 2013/2014 season, scoring no more than three league goals. He made his debut for the Scottish outfit on 10 April, 2004 in a 3-0 win over Kilmarnock.

Highlighted Player (Steven Fletcher):

Middlesbrough are five points behind the play-offs berth and, taking everything into account, we predict both teams will find the net in Saturdays football match. Garry Monks men, on the other hand, suffered a 2-1 loss to Millwall at the Den in their last league fixture and, as a result, they dropped to tenth place in the standings. Wednesday need to get back on course as soon as possible if they are to stay in the race for a place in the play-offs and we predict they are going to leave their hearts on the field in the game against Boro. The Owls do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment and they are on a six-game winless run in the Championship ahead of the visit of the Riverside Stadium outfit. Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough face each other at Hillsborough Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Saturdays program.

However, the Riverside Stadium outfit did remarkably well to win the League Cup trophy in 2004, with the team beating Bolton Wanderers in the final. George Boateng, Stewart Downing, Juninho Paulista, Gareth Southgate, Jonathan Woodgate, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, Tuncay Sanli and Hamilton Ricard are the star footballers who left their mark at Middlesbrough. Middlesbrough made it to the FA Cup final in 1997, but Chelsea proved to be a big catch for the Boro in the title game (0-2).

He now has 86 league goals since rejoining the Blades in 2015, and hes firing them to glory. While the visitors have firepower coming into this game, the hosts can boast the leagues top scorer. With 22 goals this season, hes a potent threat. The last three games have seen Sharp score six times in total, and hes a clinical finisher when given the chance. We expect him to grab a goal in this encounter, so were backing Sharp to score any time on top of our BTTS pick.
