Sheffield Wednesday vs Huddersfield
Sheffield Wednesday took a shock seventh-minute lead against Norwich on Sunday afternoon, but the Owls couldn't hold on as they were condemned to a 2-1 home defeat. Darren Moore's side have lost each of their last seven league games and look doomed for relegation.
Carlos Corberan was delighted with his side's performance on Saturday afternoon as the Yorkshire side cruised to a 1-0 victory on their travels against QPR. The Terriers ended a run of four league games without a win with that result and now have some breathing room in the relegation battle.
MIDDLESBROUGH - PRESTON
This Tuesday, as part of the match of the 37th game day of the English Championship, Middlesbrough will take on an opponent who inflicted one of the most painful defeats of the season in their native “Riverside”. The Rivermen will take revenge on Preston for 0: 3 in the first round.
In general, the North End has ceased to be a convenient opponent for Boro. So, in the previous 6 matches in all tournaments, Middlesbrough was only once stronger than Preston - this happened in the away meeting last season. Naturally, this state of affairs does not suit the team, so now the guys of Neil Warnock will try to fix the not very rosy state of affairs.
At the same time, mentioning the vendetta, one should not forget that the victory for Boro is also important from the tournament point of view. “Rechniks” are still among the applicants for a ticket to the playoffs, the gap from the 6th place is 8 points - and if you do not win in the next match, then it is unlikely that something can be corrected later.
Preston is a strong middle peasant who is not in danger. He just plays out the season and the main goal is to put as many spokes in the wheels as possible to opponents who are claiming something. Under certain circumstances, the North End could defeat Middlebroughs, but, I think, not now. Three rounds in a row Preston cannot win, and in the last one he was completely weaker than the obvious outsider Wycombe on his field, while not even being able to score. Of course, in this form, it is practically impossible to get 3 points at Riverside.
