Rotherham United Preview – Can the Millers pick up a positive result in home turf?

Paul Warne’s Rotherham United were promoted back to the Championship at the first time of asking last term. The Millers finished second behind Coventry City in the curtailed 2019-20 League One season.

Staying in the Championship for more than one year will be United’s ultimate goal, but that will not be easy task. Nevertheless, Rotherham have made a decent enough start, winning one, losing one and drawing two.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1010 GMT, Friday 16 October)

Warne’s side started their season with a 1-0 victory over Wycombe Wanderers, who were promoted alongside Rotherham last season. They were beaten at home by Millwall on matchday two, but the Yorkshire side have battled to draws with Birmingham City and Huddersfield Town since.

Rotherham will be hoping to avoid defeat at the New York Stadium on Saturday. They are priced at 13/5 to get the win and 5/2 to claim a draw.

Norwich City Preview – Canaries to return to winning ways this weekend?

Daniel Farke’s Norwich City have made a poor start to life back in the second tier following relegation from the Premier League. They began with a 1-0 win at Huddersfield, but it has gone downhill from there.

City have taken just one point from their last three in the Championship, drawing 2-2 at home with Preston North End before crashing to defeats to Bournemouth and Derby County. The Rams had lost all three matches before the meeting at Carrow Road, but Wayne Rooney’s late goal gave County all three points in Norfolk.

Norwich, who were promotion favourites before the season got underway, could really do with maximum points from this one. The Canaries head to South Yorkshire as the 21/20 favourites.


Rotherham United vs Norwich City Betting Advice

On their way to promotion from the Championship to the Premier League in the 2018-19 season, Norwich did the double over Rotherham, who were later relegated. After a 3-1 victory at Carrow Road, City left the New York Stadium with a narrow 2-1 success.


Key Facts – Rotherham United vs Norwich City Betting Tip

  • Norwich have won four of their last five games against Rotherham
  • The pair were two leagues apart last season
  • Rotherham have taken five points so far, while the Canaries have picked up just four from a possible 12


Both teams will be gunning for all three points this weekend, which should make a thrilling spectacle. Our money is going on the Norwich win. Back the visitors to prevail and for there to be over 3.5 goals, which you can get at the tempting odds of 10/3.

Teemu Pukki has not been at his best this season, scoring just one Championship goal so far. The Finland international will be looking to get on the scoresheet in this one, however. Pukki is priced at 5/4 to score anytime at the New York Stadium.
