Our prediction for this Championship match:
There will be fireworks when Middlesbrough and Luton Town face each other at Riverside Stadium on Matchday 36. The Boro have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating both Derby and WBA, while losing to Bristol City and Barnsley. Middlesbrough aim to climb to the playoffs berth, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match. Midfielder Matt Crooks is back from suspension, while both Marc Bola and Marcus Browne are out of contention with injuries.
The Hatters, on the other hand, aim to recover from the FA Cup loss to Chelsea. Luton are on a three-game winning run in the Championship, but beating Middlesbrough on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards at Riverside Stadium, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. All Sonny Bradley, Jordan Clark, and Luke Berry are out of contention with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Sammy Ameobi):
Sammy Ameobi is the younger brother of a famoust Newcastle United player Shola. Sammy is a product of Newcastle United football academy as well and he scored two goals in 56 appearances for the first team. The pacey attacker played for the likes of Middlesbrough, Cardiff City and Bolton Wanderers on loan in the past before signing a permanent deal with the Trotters on July 14, 2017.
Sammy Ameobi was born in Newcastle upon Tyne on May 1, 1992, but he has two caps for Nigeria U20 team. The left-footed footballer played for the England U21 team as well, but he has yet to make his senior debut for the Three Lions. Ameobi’s main position is centre-forward, but he is capable of playing as a winger as well.
Sammy Ameobi made his Bolton debut on September 3, 2016 against Southend and it has to be noted that he scored two goals in 20 appearances for the club in the 2016/2017 League One campaign. At the end of the season Bolton were promoted to the Championship.
