Our prediction for this Championship match:
Stoke City and Middlesbrough go head to head at Bet365 Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most interesting games of Saturday’s program. The Potters aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Wycombe, but Middlesbrough will pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. Experienced defender Ryan Shawcross has overcome his injury, but the likes of Allen, Davies, and Gunn remain in the recovery room.
The Boro, on the other hand, did well to beat Swansea City on Wednesday evening, with the team moving a little closer to the playoffs berth. Middlesbrough have been producing much better displays at home than on the travels of late, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Potters. The likes of Browne, Fletcher, and Hall are all out of contention through injury for the visitors.
