Rotherham United Preview – Will the Millers avoid relegation this weekend?

After winning promotion from EFL League One, Rotherham United have found it tough going in the Championship this season. The Millers have yo-yoed from England’s second and third tiers in recent years, but can they pull of the great escape this term?

Rotherham are hanging by a thread but still have a chance of Championship survival. They have three games to play while the others have two, with Paul Warne’s troops currently four points adrift of Wayne Rooney’s Derby.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1422 GMT, Friday 30 April)

Rotherham will be fully aware that defeat to Blackburn and a Derby victory at Swansea City will see the Millers drop down to League One. However, a win will keep their hopes alive. Rotherham are priced at 6/4 to pick up a precious three points on home turf.

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Can Rovers seal a third win in four?

Blackburn Rovers have had a topsy-turvy season in the Championship. The Blue and Whites have won 14, drawn 11 and lost 19. Rovers will finish in the bottom half, as they sit 15th on 53 points.

Blackburn showed their brilliant attacking best against Huddersfield Town last weekend. The prolific Adam Armstrong was on fire at Ewood Park, netting a hat-trick in a handsome 5-2 win. That was Armstrong’s second Championship treble of the season.

Blackburn have won two of their last three, but wins have been hard to come by in 2021. Nevertheless, they will be looking for two more victories before the season comes to an end. After the Rotherham game, Tony Mowbray’s men end their campaign with a home match against Birmingham City next weekend.


Rotherham United vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Advice

Rotherham picked up four points from the two Championship meetings in the 2018-19 season, including a 3-2 win at the New York Stadium in March 2019.

However, Rovers edged out the Millers in this season’s reverse match at Ewood Park in December. Michael Smith’s effort on the hour mark put United in front, but goals in the last ten minutes from Harvey Elliott and Armstrong won the points for Blackburn.


Key Facts – Rotherham United vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Tip

  • Rotherham have suffered five straight defeats
  • Blackburn have won two of their last three
  • Five goals were scored when the pair last met in Rotherham


Rotherham have been in woeful form of late, losing five on the spin at just the wrong time. Another defeat this weekend could be fatal, and we fancy Blackburn to claim a third victory in four games. There is good value in the away win and both teams to score at 9/2.

Blackburn’s Armstrong has been on fire of late, scoring five in his last four games, including a hat-trick last time out. Rovers’ main man is priced at 11/10 to notch anytime at the New York Stadium this weekend.
