Sheffield Wednesday vs Middlesbrough match preview

The Championship’s bottom two sides are set to lock horns in a crunch midweek showdown at Hillsborough this Tuesday, September 19th.

The matchup in question will see Sheffield Wednesday act as hosts, in a meeting with Middlesbrough.

Beginning with the former, Sheffield Wednesday have endured an altogether tough time of things, since sealing promotion to England’s 2nd tier from League One.

All told, across their six outings to date, the Owls have pieced together just one point, owing to a record of one draw, and five defeats.

Most recently, in their return to action on the back of the international break this past weekend, Xisco’s troops played host to Ipswich Town, hopeful of building on a credible draw with Leeds United.

When all was said and done, however, a solitary Conor Chaplin strike proved enough to condemn Wednesday to the wrong side of a 1-0 result.

And yet, Sheffield Wednesday may well fancy their chances of securing a long-awaited first three-point haul of the campaign later this evening.

This comes with upcoming opponents Middlesbrough have endured an equally dismal term to date.

After establishing themselves in the thick of the promotion playoff fight last time out, Boro have since seen their form fall off the side of a cliff, to the tune of one point from an available 18.

This came in gameweek three, with Michael Carrick’s men having since fallen to a trio of successive defeats.

Last time out, wastefulness in the final third cost them dear, as Matt Crooks’ 2nd-half finish proved itself little more than a consolation en route to a 2-1 downing at Blackburn Rovers.

Middlesbrough, as a result, sit dead bottom of the table, adrift of their hosts-in-waiting owing to an inferior goal difference.

Based on the available bookmakers odds, we at 101 are therefore backing an eventual stalemate to play out between Boro and Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.
