Sheffield United host Middlesbrough in a midweek English Championship fixture with both teams neck and neck in the promotion playoff race. Boro manager Chris Wilder is aiming to get one over his former side but Sheffield United will be banking on their fine home record to give them the edge here.

Sheffield United are coming off a 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest in their previous Championship fixture. They looked on the verge of a victory following Billy Sharp’s opener midway through the second half, but conceded a dramatic equaliser in the fifth minute of added time.

While Sheffield United will be disappointed not to have seen out that win, the result means they are now unbeaten in 10 of their last 11 matches, claiming five wins in that run. Paul Heckingbottom’s men are just one point off the playoff places and could climb as high as fourth if results go their way in midweek.

Sheffield United often do their best work at home and are unbeaten in their last eight matches at Bramall Lane. They have claimed five wins in that run, including a 1-0 victory over fellow playoff contenders Blackburn Rovers.

Middlesbrough have been on a giant killing run in the FA Cup and are in good form. They have revived their playoff hopes in recent weeks and will be looking to keep the likes of Sheffield United, Luton Town and Nottingham Forest outside the top six.

The Seasiders travel to Bramall Lane off the back of a 2-1 victory over fellow playoff hopefuls Luton Town. Paddy McNair opened the scoring from the spot early in the first half while Duncan Watmore added the second three minutes from time.

While manager Chris Wilder will be pleased with Middlesbrough's recent performances, they continue to struggle on their travels. They are winless in their last four away matches, suffering three defeats in that run.
