Rotherham United Preview – Can the Championship new boys upset the Swans?

Rotherham United are back in the Championship after securing promotion from the third tier last term. The Millers finished second behind champions Wigan Athletic, racking up a superb 90 points. In what was a very competitive League One, United won 27, drew nine and lost ten.

Rotherham had the third best home record in their division last season. The Millers won 15 times at the New York Stadium, losing just five home matches along the way. Rotherham had a few iffy home results in the latter stages of the season, but they finished with home wins over Ipswich Town and Oxford United.

Our betting prediction:
Swansea to win & both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1006 GMT, Friday 29 July)

Like any promoted team, staying up will be the priority for Rotherham. Before a ball has been kicked, United are available at 1/2 to avoid the drop.

Swansea City Preview – Will the Welsh outfit leave with the points?

Swansea City underachieved last season. Their pre-season preparations were damaged when Steve Cooper left, and Russell Martin took time to settle in at the Stadium.

Cooper had taken Swansea to the play-offs two years running, but the Swans were nowhere near the top six last term. The Welsh side went on to finish in 15th position in the Championship table. Overall, City won 16, drew 13 and lost 17 of their 46 league fixtures.

Rotherham United vs Swansea City Betting Advice

Rotherham were relegated at the end of the 2020-21 Championship season, while Swansea finished in the play-offs. The Swans did the double over the Millers that year, winning 1-0 in South Wales and 3-1 in South Yorkshire.

Rotherham have struggled against Swansea in recent times, winning just one of the past seven. Their last victory in this fixture came in a Championship game back in November 2018, as Ryan Manning, who now plays for Swansea, netted a brace to earn United a 2-1 home triumph.


Key Facts – Rotherham United vs Swansea City Betting Tip

  • Rotherham were promoted from League One last season
  • The Millers have picked up just one win in seven against the Swans
  • Swansea have won the previous three meetings


Rotherham will be delighted to be back in the second tier of English football, but this will be a stern test against the team from Wales. The Millers will no doubt give the Swans a good game, but our money is going on the away win. There is good value in 3/1 for Swansea to win by one goal.

Joel Piroe had a stunning first season in South Wales, scoring 22 Championship goals. The 22-year-old Dutchman is the 5/1 favourite to open the scoring in this one.
