Sky Sports pundit delivers his verdict as Middlesbrough host Wolves in key clash

Published

on

Arguably the standout Championship fixture tomorrow will see leaders Wolves travel to in-form Middlesbrough in a game that could have a big bearing on the promotion race.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men need just four wins to secure a return to the top-flight, however they will also want to win the league and the Black Country side know Cardiff are not far behind them.

Meanwhile, Tony Pulis’ men need the points to help their own play-off push, with the north east side just one point ahead of the chasing pack.

Boro go into the game boasting a six-game unbeaten run, however Sky Sports EFL pundit David Prutton thinks that will come to an end tomorrow.

The former Leeds midfielder predicted Wolves to secure a 1-0 win with Benik Afobe scoring the goal in his Sky Sports column.

Afobe has scored three goals in his last two games and has really stepped up for the leaders in their past two games.

Should Prutton’s prediction come off, Wolves would need only nine points to guarantee promotion. However, a win at Boro would be rare for the West Midlands side, who haven’t won on Teesside in 67 years.

The Verdict

This is a very tough game to call as Boro have a very talented squad and are showing the sort of form many expected at the start of the season.

Yet, Wolves will be confident after their last two games and with a 13-point cushion at the top they aren’t under severe pressure.

You would imagine there will only be a goal in this and it should be a tight game.
