THE TEAM NEWS

MIDDLESBROUGH

  • Middlesbrough are another side fighting for their lives to avoid relegation as they sit 19th in the SkyBet Championship, just two points outside the drop zone.
  • Defender Daniel Ayala will miss this weekend’s game and won’t play again for Boro as he is out of contract and plans to move on come the end of June.
  • Manager Jonathan Woodgate will be boosted by the fact that the other six of his seven out-of-contract players have indicated their wish to play and all will be in the squad for this match.

SWANSEA

  • Swansea are still right in the SkyBet Championship play-off mix and sit in 11th place, just three points behind sixth-placed Preston.
  • Manager Steve Cooper can call upon all six of his loan players such as Rhian Brewster and Conor Gallagher, not just for this weekend but for the remainder of the campaign.
  • Midfielder George Byers may also be available for the weekend after looking set to be ruled out for the season back in February when he suffered an ankle injury.

THE PREDICTION

Two sides both needing victory for very different reasons clash at the Riverside Stadium this weekend. This may lead to Middlesbrough and Swansea cancelling each out with neither side able to afford defeat, and a stalemate could be in prospect in what looks to be a tight contest.
