Our prediction for this Championship match:
All eyes will be on Riverside Stadium when Middlesbrough and Brentford take on each other in the Championship round 28. The Boro have been struggling in front of goal of late, with the team failing to win the previous three league fixtures. Middlesbrough are eager to put an end to their winless run in the Championship, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Bees. The likes of Browne, Dijksteel, and Tavernier are likely to miss the game with injuries for the hosts.
Brentford, on the other hand, are eager to make amends for the unsuccessful 2019/20 season when they missed out on a place in the Premier League. The capital club head into the match following back-to-back wins over Wycombe and Bristol City, and given Middlesbrough’s current form, away win should be considered. Goode remains quarantined, while Baptiste, Jansson, Marcondes, and Norgaard are all likely to miss the game with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Sam Morsy):
Sam Morsy is a professional footballer who plays for Wigan Athletic in the Championship. His full name is Samy Sayed Morsy and he started his youth career at Wolverhampton Wanderers. During his spell with Wolves he was spotted by Port Vale scouts and in 2008 joined the Vale Park outfit.
The talented midfielder made his debut for the first team on 23 February, 2010 in a 4-0 win over Lincoln City and at the end of the 2009/2010 campaign he was given the Youth Player of the Year award. After playing 71 league games for Port Vale, Sam Morsy joined Chesterfield in July 2013 and on 30 march 2014 he participated in the Football League Trophy final. However, he did not help Chesterfield beat Peterborough United in the title game (1-3).
On 28 January 2016 Morsy signed a two-and- a-half year contract with Wigan Athletic for an undisclosed fee. Sam Morsy was born in Wolverhampton on 10 September, 1991 and he was father is Egyptian.
Highlighted Team (Brentford):
Based in London, Brentford compete in the Championship and they were founded in 1898. Griffin Park has been the home ground of the club since 1904 and the capacity of the venue is 12,300.
The Bees have yet to play in the Premier League and it has to be noted that they made it to the FA Cup sixth round on four occasions (1937/1938, 1945/1946,1948/1949, 1988/1989). Brentford played in the League Cup round 4 in the 1982/1983 and 2010/2011 season and that is the club’s biggest success in the competition.
Brentford’s main rivals are Fulham and Queens Park Rangers and they take on each other in the West London Derby. The rivalry with the Cottagers is probably the biggest and you should bear in mind that the clashes between the two teams have their history of crowd violence. The colour of Brentford’s shirts is red and white and they wear black shorts.
