Sheffield United vs Middlesbrough
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 10 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Bramall Lane (Sheffield).
Bramall Lane will play host to one of the most interesting ties of the Matchday in English Championship. The hosts will be looking to narrow the gap behind the sixth-placed Middlesbrough down to one point with a result here. Getting one will, however, be a very challenging task for the Blades given that Boro have been playing very well in the second part of the season.
The visitors did not have any troubles cruising past Nottingham Forest on Saturday. Daniel Ayala and Stewart Downing notched two quick goals early in the first half to seal the way towards the new victory. Tony Pulis generally has reasons to be satisfied with his team’s displays in the final third. Boro will also come into this unbeaten in last four games on the road in the Championship.
Sheffield United, on the other side, misses a huge chance to catch up with their rivals in the battle for the playoffs ion Saturday. The Blades surprisingly fell 3-2 away at relegation strugglers Barnsley at Oakwell. The team led by Chris Wilder has thus revealed plenty of holes at the back. These will likely be heavily exploited by Boro’s in-form, strikers. We primarily mean on the likes of Patrick Bamford and Britt Assombalonga who have both been playing very well of late.
Sheffield United vs Middlesbrough: Head-to-head
Trips to Bramall Lane have never gone quite well for Middlesbrough who have only snatched 6 wins in 37 games there.
Nonetheless, Boro have dominated this match-up in the most recent history, winning each of last three meetings against the Blades.
Sheffield United have only scored a single goal in the process.
