Rotherham have hit a really sticky run of late and will face a real challenge to get back to winning ways against a Bristol City who are chasing automatic promotion.

Rotherham United Preview – Can Rotherham halt a slide which has seen them lose five of their last six games?

It was just the one season away for Rotherham following relegation from the Championship back in 2018/19. Paul Warned guided his team back courtesy of automatic promotion from League One but he would have been under no illusion just how difficult it would be for his team to stay in the division, just as it was a couple of years ago. Now 17 games into the season and Rotherham sit in 20th spot – just a point above the bottom three.

They come into this game having lost five of their last six including each of the last three. They’ve also conceded at least two goals in their last five matches.


Our betting prediction:
Under 2.5 goals

It was never going to be anything else other than a struggle for Rotherham and the key for them is ensuring they don’t let recent struggles determine performances in their upcoming games. And heading into this festive period when games come thick and fast is an opportunity for them to get back to winning ways as we approach a new year.
Warne will also take some confidence from the fact his team have taken seven points from their last five home matches.

Bristol City Preview – Will Bristol City put another run of wins together after stuttering slightly of late?

Dean Holden will be relatively pleased with how his first full season in charge of Bristol City having been assistant manager for four years before a short spell as caretaker in the summer. The Robins sit in sixth spot coming into this weekend and just four points off the leaders. Of course it’s a very congested promotion picture just now but Holden will feel his team can be serious contenders for a top two finish.

It was back to winning ways for City in midweek when winning 1-0 at home to Blackburn. That was just their second win in their last five games and one which they hope will be the start of a positive run.

These two teams had different objectives at the start of the season and that remains the case now we’re over a third of the way into it. The home team need points in order to try and give themselves breathing space at the bottom whilst Bristol City are not only looking to continue their excellent away from but also keep the pressure on the teams above them.

A key reason as to why that’s the case is Rotherham have already conceded nine goals more than their opponents.
