Back to winning ways for top two


There is hardly time to draw breath in the Championship as the action resumes on Friday night, with Leeds United making the trip to Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday.

Leeds to win @ 6/5

The Whites have a mixed record in recent trips to Hillsborough, with two wins, a draw and a defeat in their last four visits to the home of the Owls.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side tasted defeat in the Championship last time out, as Birmingham City performed the perfect smash-and-grab job to claim the three points at Elland Road.

Leeds are having to adjust to life without the injured Kemar Roofe and Patrick Bamford, as Tyler Roberts deputises up front.

Wales international Roberts, who is the 6/1 first goalscorer, had a quiet game against the Blues but showed in the previous win against Preston what he is capable of as he bagged a brace.

Wednesday will be full of confidence after their 2-1 victory against a struggling Aston Villa side at the weekend.

With veteran Scottish striker Steven Fletcher leading the line, the Owls have a clear target man to look for and they will cause Leeds problems.

However, with Bielsa learning much from the Birmingham defeat, Leeds should have the game to be able to bounce back under the lights at Hillsborough.

Middlesbrough to win @ 23/20

Under manager Tony Pulis, Boro look like real contenders, not only to secure promotion, but to win the Championship title this season.

Middlesbrough head to struggling Hull City on Saturday, looking to inflict another defeat on the struggling Tigers.

Hull have lost their last two games to Wigan Athletic (2-1) and Reading (3-0), with confidence seemingly low in Nigel Adkins’ camp.

Boro beat Hull 3-1 home and away last season and it’s a 17/1 shot for the same scorelines on Saturday at the KCOM.
