Overview

 

There are some interesting fixtures on Tuesday evening but not many we would regard as shoe-ins for any particular team; the most likely winners look like Burnley at Fulham, Middlesbrough at Rotherham and Brighton at home to Sheffield Wednesday so that’s our starting point.

Defence

  • Brighton have conceded one goal in five matches so David Stockdale is an obvious choice against a Wednesday side in poor form.
  • Lewis Dunk is our second Brighton defender for the reasons given above; he can also score the odd goal.
  • Middlesbrough’s Ben Gibson is part of a defence that has been patchy recently but should do well against a poor Rotherham attack.
  • Burnley have conceded one goal in five games so Ben Mee has a decent chance of a clean sheet.

Midfield

  • Boro’s Stewart Downing is consistent with goals and assists in the Championship and he also takes penalties.
  • Burnley’s David Jones should see plenty of the ball against Fulham and he has already chipped in with 1 goal so far this season.
  • Brighton’s Dale Stephens has scored five goals this season and is an ever-present in the team.
  • Fulham’s Tom Cairney might be in a team struggling in the Championship but he scores points nonetheless with plenty of shots  and 7 goals scored so far.

Forwards

  • Burnley’s Andre Gray has scored 19 goals so far this season and is clearly an obvious choice.
  • Jordan Rhodes has made a good start for Boro since his transfer with 1 goal scored.
  • Tomer Hemed has been in great goalscoring form recently, scoring 11 in total this season and is a regular starter for Brighton.
