Football – England – Championship Betting Tips
Cardiff City registered back-to-back wins on Tuesday night when they overcame play-off chasing Derby County at the iPro Stadium in a pulsating 4-3 win to hand Neil Warnock’s team a mid-table position following a terrible start to the season.
The Bluebirds recorded just two league wins in the Championship from their first 11 matches of the new season; this brought about the appointment of current manager Neil Warnock who rescued Rotherham United from the drop last season, and looks to be going a step better with Cardiff City.
Cardiff’s overall home record now stands at 7-2-7 17/19 and they’ve racked up recent wins over Aston Villa, Burton Albion and Preston North End, so a visit from struggling Rotherham United can represent a great opportunity for the home side to continue their positive progress.
Onto Rotherham United then, and The Millermen have been cast adrift at the bottom of the Championship as they find themselves 14 points adrift of fourth from bottom club Burton Albion following a dismal run of six matches without a win, or just one league win from their last nine.
Recent defeats to Barnsley, Nottingham Forest, Bristol City and Huddersfield Town show their very vulnerable state of mind and fragile confidence, and a trip to a buoyant Cardiff City in their own backyard may well present further problems for the visitors.
Rotherham are also the only side in the Championship yet to record an away win as their away record reads a woeful 0-1-15 10/43 and they’ve lost their last eight away matches on the trot.
All roads should lead to a home win here…
