Port Vale Preview – Will the Valiants shock the Championship club?

Darrell Clarke’s Port Vale kicked off their League One campaign with an excellent 2-1 home victory over Fleetwood Town. After going a goal down early on, Vale battled back to get the points thanks to efforts from Nathan Smith and Connor Hall.

However, they were brought back down to earth with a thump last weekend, crashing to a heavy defeat at Exeter City, who were promoted alongside the Valiants last term. Goals from Jevani Brown (2), Harry Kite and Sam Nombe gave City a resounding 4-0 victory.

Our betting prediction:
Rotherham to score in both halves

(odds taken 1633 GMT, Tuesday 9 August)

Port Vale would love to cause an upset in the cup and bounce back from last weekend’s horror show at St James Park. They are priced at 9/4 to come out on top in normal time.

Rotherham United Preview – Can the Millers book place in round two?

Rotherham United were due to play Coventry City last weekend, but the Coventry Building Society Arena pitch was deemed unsafe to play on, and the game was called off. Therefore, this will be the Millers’ first game since the opening weekend of the Championship season.

After securing an instant return to the second tier, Paul Warne’s boys started their Championship campaign with a solid draw with Swansea City at the New York Stadium. Chiedozie Ogbene gave United the lead, but the Swans levelled through Harry Darling’s spectacular strike.

Port Vale vs Rotherham United Betting Advice

These two sides were paired up in the Football League Trophy last season, with the game ending in a 1-1 draw at the New York Stadium – United went on to win 5-3 on penalties.

They met in the 2013-14 League One season, with both teams winning the home fixture. Port Vale have won the last four meetings at home, with Rotherham’s last success at Vale Park coming in a League Two affair way back in 2009.


Key Facts – Port Vale vs Rotherham United Betting Tip

  • Port Vale were promoted from League Two last term
  • Rotherham finished second in League One last season
  • The Millers have not won at Vale Park since 2009


Port Vale will still be hurting from last Saturday’s heavy loss, and we can see the Valiants suffering another defeat in midweek. Warne’s troops will be searching for a comfortable cup win before returning to Championship action with a home match against Reading at the weekend.

We fancy the away team to win by a margin, and there is good value in 3/1 for United to win -1. Also, take a punt on Rotherham to be winning at half time and full time at 13/5.
