Free Soccer prediction for The Championship:
Middlesbrough VS Scunthorpe





Middlesbrough VS Scunthorpe match analysis

Middlesbrough probably has capacity for the top five of Championship. But, this former member of Premier League had very bad series in middle of the season - six defeats and one draw in seven consecutive matches. With such results you can't expect better position than relegation zone. Now, after 27 rounds Midllesbrough is three points above that zone and every future home match is very important to survive in the Championship. It's especially important to win in matches against weaker opponents, like today's rival Scunthorpe. The visitors are weakened today because they have six injured players: Joe Murphy (goalkeeper), Rob Jones, Cliff Byrne, Niall Canavan ( all three defenders), Michael O'Connor (midfielder) and Garry Thompson (striker). Joe Murphy is the regular goalkeeper and given that Plymouth has a very bad defense, his absence is a big problem for this team. In three previous matches between them Middlesbrough achieved all three clean sheet wins, scoring seven goals. Scunthorpe is good visitor, they win 6 and lost 7 away matches, after today's match it will be leveled. Handicap or clean sheet win is also good tip. GL.
