Rotherham United Preview – Can Rotherham keep heads above water?

Rotherham United find themselves in familiar territory in the Championship as the hosts occupy 15th place on the league table and only above the relegation zone thanks to a more favourable goal difference over their visitors, Derby County, prior to this relegation ‘six-pointer’.

A recent 2-0 home win over a notoriously inconsistent Bristol City outfit gave Rotherham some welcome respite from a six-match run without a win in the Championship (which included five defeats), but their joy was short-lived as The Millers slumped to an 11th loss away at Blackburn Rovers immediately afterwards.

However, a glimmer of hope is offered by the fact that all three of Rotherham’s wins to date in the second tier have been at home with victories over Sheffield Wednesday, Preston NE and Bristol City but goals could be thin on the ground here as five of Rotherham’s 10 home matches have been under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:

Derby County Preview – Can Derby continue stubborn revival?

Derby County head into this relegation battle away at Rotherham United having put together a stubborn six-match run without defeat in the Championship which includes wins against Millwall and Swansea City along with four draws.

The Rams still occupy a place in the relegation zone but the green shoots of recovery are now starting to sprout in the east midlands and the visitors will be quietly confident that they can at least avoid defeat in south Yorkshire on Saturday afternoon.

Derby have managed just two wins on the road so far this season so an away win here may be pushing it but seven of Derby’s nine away matches to date have been under 2.5 goals so this looks the best angle here.
