Sheffield United host Middlesbrough in a pulsating EFL Championship contest that will see two sides that are in the middle of a terrific run going against each other. This battle at the top end of the table has plenty of significance for both sides. Sheffield are in the driving seat to secure the automatic promotion. They are placed second with a 10-point lead and a game in hand over the visitors. Middlesbrough, who are sitting third, will hope for the maximum points from this fixture in order to close down that gap.
Both sides have been really good this season in the Championship. They are one of the few in-form teams at the moment in the division. With a lot riding on this tie, this contest will undoubtedly keep the fans intrigued. Middlesbrough’s season changed following Michael Carrick’s appointment as manager in October. Since then, they have done incredibly well to climb up from a relegation scare to be in the middle of a playoff race.
Middlesbrough are currently enjoying a three-game winning streak in the Championship, which they would hope to continue further when they visit Bramall Lane on Wednesday night. Overall, Middlesbrough have 51 points from 31 games to be sitting third in the table. Sheffield United are ten points ahead of them with 61 from 30 matches to be placed second in the standings. Sheffield also have a much-superior goal difference, thereby making it really difficult for Middlesbrough to catch up with them.
