The TV cameras head to the Riverside on Wednesday evening for the clash between two sides chasing spots in the play-offs as Middlesbrough welcome Hull City to Teesside. Both teams have lost their last two matches so they will be keen to turn their form around in that match. The other high profile match on the evening comes from the King Power Stadium where Leicester City will look to reclaim top spot with a win over a Millwall side who are beginning to get dangerously close to the relegation zone.

Southampton have already seen Ipswich Town win this midweek so they will be keen to win themselves when they head to the CBS Arena to take on Coventry City. At the other end of the table QPR have the chance to come out of the relegation zone when they host a Plymouth Argyle side who they will move level on points with should they win the game. Sheffield Wednesday have won their last two matches and will look to add to their collection when they travel to Carrow Road to take on an up and down Norwich City. The other match sees play-off chasing Cardiff City hosting Birmingham City, who will be looking to come out of their slump.


Plymouth Argyle have really struggled on their travels this season and I sense those woes could continue on Wednesday evening when they head to Loftus Road to take on a QPR side who are beginning to flourish under their new manager Marti Cifuentes. Plymouth are yet to taste victory on the road this term and go into this match off the back of a 4-0 hiding by Leicester City at the weekend in a match where they saw just 35% of the ball so there could be some heavy legs going into this one.

I think most judges expected QPR to improve once Gareth Ainsworth was given the bullet. He was never the right fit for the squad they have at their disposal and given that he has got Chris Willock straight back involved, it isn’t a surprise that QPR have won their last three matches. They have scored eight goals in those games as well and beaten a couple of top half sides in Preston and Hull City. We saw in that win over Preston that they have enough options to change things around should they want to rotate whereas things might be tighter for Plymouth. Argyle have just three points from 10 away games this season and they aren’t likely to add to their tally here.
