Additionally, Sheffield Wednesday have played out three straight home draws, with their last victory at Hillsborough dates back to the end of August.
On the other hand, the Smoggies currently trail leaders Sheffield United by three points, as they are tied to the fourth place with 22 points and a +8 goal difference. The Boro have established themselves as one of the teams that allow fewest goals in the Championship, having conceded only six goals so far.
