In a turbulent Championship campaign, Rotherham managed to take it to the final day. They were minutes away from surviving, but results went against them in the end. Can the Millers make an instant return?

This will be a tough game for United, but Warne’s boys will fancy their chances on their own patch. The home win is priced at 6/5.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Can the Owls keep another clean sheet?

Darren Moore’s Sheffield Wednesday have made a solid start to life back in League One. They are one of only two teams yet to concede a goal. The Owls are currently in fourth position with seven points to their name.

Wednesday’s revival started with a decent 0-0 draw with Charlton Athletic at The Valley in game one. The Owls then made home advantage count by securing back-to-back home wins over Doncaster Rovers and Fleetwood Town in the last week. So far, Moore’s men have scored three and shipped none.

Rotherham United vs Sheffield Wednesday Betting Advice

In the Championship last season, Rotherham did the league double over Wednesday. A Jamie Lindsay brace and a Dan Barlaser penalty gave the Millers a resounding 3-0 victory at the New York Stadium. United then won 2-1 at Hillsborough back in March, with Freddie Lapado scoring in injury time for Warne’s ten-man Millers.

Key Facts – Rotherham United vs Sheffield Wednesday Betting Tip

  • Rotherham did the double over the Owls last term, scoring five goals to boot
  • Wednesday have taken seven points from a possible nine, shipping none in the process
  • Sheffield Wednesday have not beat Rotherham in league action since April 2017


This South Yorkshire derby promises to be an enthralling battle between two promotion hopefuls. Despite being unbeaten and keeping three clean sheets, Wednesday make the short trip to the New York Stadium as the second favourites with the bookies. However, we fancy the Owls to return home with a point. Back the draw at 9/4.

Freddie Lapado hit the winner in the last fixture between the pair, and the 28-year-old scored Rotherham’s opening goal of this campaign. Lapado is the 4/1 favourite to score first in this one.
