Sheffield Wednesday vs Middlesbrough Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides who are in the middle third of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Sheffield Wednesday continued their struggles as they suffered a 1-0 home loss to leaders Wolves last time out. The Owls disappointment was complete when Morgan Fox was dismissed towards the end. Middlesbrough suffered their third defeat in four games as they went down 2-1 to Millwall at the Den in their last game. A second-half Stewart Downing proved to be a mere consolation effort in a tie in which they were a clear second best. The last meeting between these sides came in January of this year when they were drawn together in the FA Cup a game that Boro won at their own ground 3-0. It continues a recent head-to-head trend that has seen the North-Eastern outfit win each of the last three between the duo.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The prices on here look about right and it is hard to back either team at these odds considering Wednesday have won just four of 11 at home and Boro three of 11 on the road so I would look elsewhere for the bets. Both teams to score looks a good play as nine of 12 at Hillsborough in all competitions this season has seen that while it is seven of eight on the road for Middlesbrough. Over 2.5 goals also looks worth a play as this happened in five of the last eight for the Owls at all grounds and four of six for Boro. In addition, also consider combining these two in a double.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview

The Owls have now lost their last two and are without a victory in six and sat in 15th place going into the weekend. Three of their four holiday fixtures are against sides above them but nobody higher than tenth so it is a reasonable run of games that they will be expected to pick up points from. At Hillsborough, they have lost just one of their last five though in turn they have also won just one of these. Nine of their 12 in all competitions in front of their own fans this season have seen both teams find the back of the net. Around 58% of the goals they have scored this season have come in the second-half with 45% in the final 30 minutes. Five of their last eight have gone over 2.5 goals and three of their last five have gone over 3.5.

Sheffield Wednesday Team News

Jack Hunt (unknown) and Steven Fletcher (knock) are doubts while Morgan Fox is suspended. Tom Lees (thigh), Sam Hutchinson, Fernando Forestieri (both knee) and George Boyd (shoulder) are long-term absentees.

Middlesbrough Preview

A run of three defeats from their last four means Middlesbrough now sit in tenth place and need to use a kind set of holiday fixtures to climb the table. Two of their next four opponents are in the bottom-half and just one of them (Aston Villa in fifth) are in the top third. Away from the Riverside Stadium, they have struggled losing each of their last three by the same 2-1 scoreline. In each of their last three on the road the North-Eastern side have conceded two goals first before scoring themselves. Just two of their last five and three of their last seven have seen both teams find the back of the net. 57% of the goals they have scored this season have come in the second-half and 50% in the final 30 minutes.

Middlesbrough Team News

Boro have no registered injuries or suspensions ahead of this game.
