There is a wonderful promotion race happening in League One. On Tuesday night, the top two will be meeting for a massive showdown. Rotherham are top of the table only on goal difference and this is a big chance for them on the road to strengthen their position. But Coventry’s home form is simply superb.

Coventry’s home form may be key

Coventry aren’t actually playing at home this season. They are playing their home fixtures at Birmingham’s St Andrews. But the Sky Blues have enjoyed a fantastic run there this season, picking up a W10 D4 L1 in their designated home games.

They are currently undefeated in their last eight there. Home away combined, they are unbeaten in eleven league fixtures. Coventry have hit the back of the net in each of their last six on home turf in the league.

The defence of Coventry has been immense. Mark Robins’ men have only conceded 10 goals in their fifteen home games, which is an average of 0.67 goals per game against them. 7 of their 10 home goals conceded have gone against them in the first half of games.

Our betting prediction:
Coventry 1 goal winning margin

Only 33% of Coventry’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Another big trend is that nine of Coventry’s ten home league wins in this campaign have been by a one-goal margin. 12 of their 15 (home and away combined) were by that margin as well.

Coventry will be looking for a bit of revenge to having lost 4-0 away against the Millers earlier this season. One of only three league losses they have suffered this season.


Can the Millers grind it out?

So how will Rotherham handle themselves against the in-form West Midlanders? The Millers have dropped only two points in their last five league games and their away record for the campaign is nothing to be sneezed at.

Rotherham are W10D2 L4 on their travels this season, but if you go in for a closer look then something does jump out. From their three games played away from home against teams currently in the top seven, the Millers have taken a winless D1 L2 record.

They have won their last two road league games and have managed to average 1.75 goals per away game in this campaign. Rotherham have scored at least two goals in three of their last four league games played (home and away).
