Different ambitions but same goal
Both Wycombe Wanderers and Middlesbrough come into the game this weekend with the aim of grabbing a vital three points, despite their differing fortunes so far this season.
Wycombe were able to overcome Cardiff in midweek, claiming only their third win of the season. Despite that victory, they remain at the bottom of the league with just 15 points from 22 games as they struggle to adapt to their first season in the Championship.
Middlesbrough have been on the verge of breaking into the playoffs for much of the season but their chances were hampered by a shock loss to Sheffield Wednesday in midweek. Boro will be hoping that is just a minor set back and they will return to the form they had found prior to that loss.
Wycombe have struggled so much this season that it’s tricky to see them emerging from this match with any points. Middlesbrough have looked very good defensively this season, conceding less than a goal a game on average and with Wycombe looking blunt in attack, we’re backing Middlesbrough to pick up another three points here.
Middlesbrough shouldn’t be troubled too in this fixture and three points should be the aim. We’re confident they should gain those points and we think a 2-0 scoreline favouring the visitors looks like a good prediction.
