It will take a monumental crumble for Fulham not to earn promotion back to the Premier League at the end of this season, and the Cottagers aren’t too far from securing it. Marco Silva’s side are currently eight points clear at the top of the Championship table and 14 ahead of third-placed Huddersfield Town, who have six games left to play.

While victory over Middlesbrough would put Fulham out of Huddersfield’s reach, there other teams that could catch them, including seventh-placed Nottingham Forest who have a game in hand over the Cottagers and nine in total remaining. Fulham go into this game off the back of a 2-0 win over QPR at the weekend, ending a two-match winless streak in the Championship prior to the international break – including a 1-0 defeat to West Brom.

Meanwhile, hosts Middlesbrough will be looking to keep control of their play-off spot in a battle that is getting tighter and tighter. Boro go into this game in fifth but are just four points clear of fourth-placed Millwall, albeit with a game in hand. Forest are Boro’s biggest danger though, just a point behind with a game in hand, so Chris Wilder’s side cannot afford to slip up.

The hosts go into this game unbeaten in three matches in the Championship, including a 4-0 thrashing of Peterborough at the weekend to put the sadness of their FA Cup exit behind them. However, Wednesday kicks off a tough run for Boro that will also see them face Bournemouth and Huddersfield before the season is up.

Middlesbrough vs Fulham: Match Stats

Both Middlesbrough and Fulham are full of quality and they will also go into the game with a can’t-lose mentality, meaning things could be pretty close. While Fulham have blown away some teams in the Championship this season, there have been under 2.5 goals scored in five of their past six league matches, with a 5-1 thrashing of Swansea the only anomaly.

Close games often mean midfield battles, which can lead to cards. The prime candidate in this game is Matt Crooks, who has been booked 12 times in the Championship this season in 35 appearances – only Coventry City’s Gustavo Hamer (13) has received more yellow cards.
