Middlesbrough vs Barnsley
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 10th March 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Riverside Stadium (Middlesbrough).
Middlesbrough are currently sitting in their dreamt 6th place. The team scored some impressive results in recent weeks and managed to get hold of it. Pulis has finally managed to bring some consistency to the side. Now the next stage is keeping that consistency.
Middlesbrough are not most confident when they play away from home but midweek they managed to grab the 3 points. Birmingham was their host coming after a managerial change. Patrick Bamford was the hero again with his goal bringing the minimal victory.
Barnsley showed some signs of life when they defeated Birmingham which is the thing still keeping them above the drop-zone. The team is just 2 points and 1 place above relegation and needs to pick some points otherwise risks dropping. The team hasn’t yet gotten out of the poor run and needs to step up.
Last round The Tykes lost to Cardiff. It wasn’t such a bed performance considering Cardiff’s form. Barnsley scored the only goal in Cardiff has conceded in 5 games so they can be happy with the performance. The result though is still a loss which brought them closer to the relegation zone.
