Swansea vs Middlesbrough Match Preview
Swansea put to an end a three-game winless run with a 3-0 defeat of Brentford in midweek as they finally got a result to match their improved performances. They sit 14thin the table and with ten points between them and sixth the play-offs are beyond them. A strong end to the season is possible with just two of their remaining eight against top 12 opponents.
At the Liberty Stadium, the Swans are unbeaten in their last six and have won each of the previous three. The Welsh outfit have kept clean sheets in each of their last three and four of the last five at their own place. Daniel James has two in his last four here while Ollie McBurnie has four in the last six.
Middlesbrough suffered a fifth consecutive defeat on Tuesday night and stretched their winless run to six with a 1-0 home loss to Bristol City. It means that they have dropped into eighth and are two points from the play-offs. A lack of goals is a major issue with none in their last three and just two in the last six.
Away from the Riverside, the form has been better with just two defeats in their last eight with these coming at Villa and Sheffield United. The Teesiders have the best road defence in the Championship conceding just 17 times. The last four they have played on the road have produced a combined total of just five goals.
The hosts look a good bet here against a Middlesbrough side who have lost their last five and look woefully short of confidence. Getting away from home will help Boro but they will run into a Swans side full of heart and picking up results at their own place. Given the Teesiders woe in front of goals not only does a home win makes sense but a home win to nil also is worth taking.
