Sheffield Wednesday won’t want a repeat of their last result here after a 0-1 Championship losing effort in their last game against Ipswich Town.
In that match, Sheffield Wednesday managed 46% possession and 5 attempts on goal with 0 of them on target. On the other side, Ipswich Town got 12 shots on goal with 5 on target. Conor Chaplin (45') scored for Ipswich Town.
It has been a rare occasion in recent games where Sheffield Wednesday have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Sheffield Wednesday have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, shipping 9 goals along the way.
Coming into this contest, Sheffield Wednesday are without a home win in the past 3 league matches.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Blackburn Rovers in Championship competition, Middlesbrough and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that match, Middlesbrough managed 45% possession and 20 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. The scorer for Middlesbrough was Matt Crooks (55'). On the other side, Blackburn Rovers got 15 attempts at goal with 8 on target. Sammie Szmodics (31', 49') scored for Blackburn Rovers.
The numbers tell their own story, and Middlesbrough have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 13 goals in all. At the back, Middlesbrough have seen their frailties exposed. While that may be of interest, we’ll just have to find out whether that pattern might persist in this next match.
Heading into this contest, Middlesbrough are without a win away from home in their last 7 league games.
