Our prediction for this Championship match:
Against all odds, Barnsley defeated Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage, with the team putting an end to their five-game winless run in the Championship. The Tykes are still sitting in the ultimate position in the standings, but they did well to regain a much-needed confidence at the weekend. Since Barnsley are eager to secure yet another Championship survival, we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Middlesbrough, who have not been at their sharpest of late.
The Boro suffered a shocking 1-0 loss to relegation strugglers Luton in front of home fans at the weekend, with the team extending their winless run in the league to seven games. Considering that Barnsley proved their worth in the 3-0 win over the title-chasing Cottagers, we are tempted to put our money on the rock-bottom side. In the first half of the season the Boro emerged triumphant, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
