Sheffield comfortably overcame Swansea City 3-0, while Middlesbrough got the better of Cardiff City 3-1 at the weekend.
Middlesbrough travel to Sheffield United for an all-important top-end of the table contest in the EFL Championship. This fixture on Wednesday night will be extremely difficult to call for various reasons. Both sides are entering into this match in the best possible shape after winning their weekend games. Sheffield comfortably overcame Swansea City 3-0, while Middlesbrough got the better of Cardiff City 3-1. Hence, they will be brimming with confidence while going into this fixture.
At the start of the season, Middlesbrough were struggling big time. There was also a potential relegation scare for them, which ultimately resulted in a managerial change. Ever since Michael Carrick’s appointment as manager in October, their fortunes changed. From a potential relegation battle, Middlesbrough rose all the way up to the play-off race. Even though Sheffield are sitting further forward, Carrick’s side will remain positive about their chances of closing down that gap for automatic promotion.
However, it will not be easy against an in-form Sheffield United side, who are also going through a good run of form. Sheffield along with Burnley have been the two sides that have been difficult for others to keep up pace with in the Championship table. Sitting second in the standings, Sheffield have 61 points from 30 matches. Meanwhile, Middlesbrough are ten points behind them at 51 from 31 games to be sitting third in the table.
