Rotherham United Preview – Can the Millers return with a home win?

Rotherham United are back in the Championship after winning promotion from EFL League One last term. Paul Warne’s men finished runners-up to Wigan Athletic, racking up an impressive 90 points. United won 27, drew nine and lost ten of 46 matches.

Rotherham started life back in the Championship with a good draw with Swansea City at the New York Stadium. Chiedozie Ogbene opened the scoring for the Millers, but Harry Darling levelled for the Swans before the break.

Our betting prediction:
1-1 draw

(odds taken 1205 GMT, Friday 12 August)

United picked up a win in the first round of the EFL Cup in midweek, as goals from Oliver Rathbone and Ogbene sealed a 2-1 success on the road against EFL League One side Port Vale. Can Warne’s troops follow that up with three points in the league this Saturday?

Reading Preview – Will the Royals build on Cardiff victory?

Reading survived by the skin of their teeth after a tough season last time around, and Paul Ince’s men have been tipped to struggle again. However, they have collected three points from a possible six so far.

On the first weekend of the new season, Reading were narrowly beaten by Blackpool, with Callum Connolly scoring the only goal of the game at Bloomfield Road. They bounced back with a superb victory over Cardiff City last weekend, coming from behind to win 2-1 at the Select Car Leasing Stadium.
