Sheffield United will look to continue their strong run of form

Middlesbrough host Sheffield United at the Riverside Stadium in the EFL Championship on Tuesday, with neither side having the best start to their campaign.

Middlesbrough are currently 18th in the league and have lost three of their last four games. Neil Warnock's side are dangerously close to the relegation zone and will be looking to win the game against Sheffield United on Tuesday.

Sheffield United have been in good form of late. Slavisa Jokanovic's side are currently on a seven-game unbeaten streak and are 11th in the table.

However, the Blades have not been able to string consecutive victories together and will be looking to do so with a win against a poor Middlesbrough side.

Both teams will want to win the game for different reasons and that should make Tuesday's game a well-contested matchup.

Middlesbrough vs Sheffield United Head-to-Head
