Middlesbrough comes from a win at home against Millwall and is looking for another one, keeping the objective of taking over the third place to become the chaser of the first places in the table. The Boro now have four consecutive wins and the restart has been very productive for the team, with five in the six they have played since December 10.

5:30 AM16 days ago


Sunderland are coming off a tough loss at home to Swansea. The Black Cats have been performing very well since the competition restarted, but they hope that this setback will not prevent them from keeping their chances of being close to the play-off places to play at the end of the season for a place that will take them back to the Premier League, but they will have to get on a positive streak for this to happen.
