EFL: SWFC vs Middlesbrough

To lose to Cardiff at home in the previous round, Middlesbrough could not be assured of the relegation task even though the season has reached the final round. As such, Neil Warnock's army needs 3 points in this match to be sure of relegation success. However, it was clear that Sheffield Wed did not let that scenario happen even though this team had no specific goals to strive for.

Sheffield Wed had a successful first leg when they were consistently in the top group. However, teachers and coach Garry Monk could not maintain that performance throughout the season, when their forces did not allow it. Over 45 rounds, Sheffield Wed has earned 56 points and temporarily ranked 16th in the rankings, more than the group "holding the red light" with a gap of 8 points and less than the top 6 to 14 points. As such, they have been officially relegated for a long time and this match is only procedural with Sheffield Wed. Being early in relegation, Sheffield Wednesday did not show a great determination in their recent matches.In particular, Sheffield Wed lost to 4 draws 1 match and won 1 match in the last 6 rounds.

If their opponents were able to "sleep pillows" then Middlesbrough still have a lot of worries before the upcoming round of curtain-closing. The proof is that Middlesbrough is still not sure how to get the relegation ticket when it is only 2 points higher than the "holding the red light" group. Specifically, Middlesbrough just got 50 points after 45 rounds and stood at position 16 on the table. Entering the final round, Middlesbrough needs to get at least 1 point to ensure safety. Of course it's not a difficult task if they play well. It should be known that the army of coach Neil Warnock played very sublimated on the away field after winning 4/5 trips away from home recently.
