Swansea City Prediction

Despite being handed a heavy 4-0 thrashing away at QPR on the weekend, Graham Potter’s side will return to Wales in confident mood of returning to winning ways back on home turf after posting an impressive eight match sequence without defeat, which includes winning their last five home matches on the trot.

There’s still obviously a lot of work ahead for The Swans with regards their performances and results away from home as the Welsh outfit have lost their last seven matches on the trot on their travels, but their home record looks solid enough which stands at 11-4-5 35/22 having strung together recent wins over Millwall, Bolton Wanderers, Brentford, Middlesbrough and Stoke City.

With eight clean sheets so far on home turf this season, it seems that Potter has gone a long way to fixing Swansea’s own backyard, and they’ll fancy their chances of further adding to their win column when lowly Rotherham United visit on Good Friday.

Out of the last six meetings on home turf against Friday’s visitors, Rotherham United, Swansea have suffered just the one defeat, so the hosts will be keen to pick up further points in this clash I daresay.

 

Key-Facts – Swansea City v Rotherham United

  • Swansea City have won their last 5 home matches on the trot
  • Rotherham United have won 1 of their last 46 away matches in the Championship
  • Swansea have lost just 1 of the 6 home encounters with Rotherham United

 

Rotherham United Prediction

Rotherham United stayed in touch with the teams above the bottom three last Saturday when they held Stoke City to a 2-2 draw at the bet365 Stadium and they’re just two points adrift of both Millwall and Wigan Athletic prior to this Easter’s action.

However, Rotherham have registered just one win from their last five matches overall in the Championship and that was a 2-1 home win over Nottingham Forest, but recent defeats to Norwich City, Derby County and Aston Villa have prevented Paul Warne’s side from lifting themselves out of the bottom three.

The story doesn’t get any better when looking at Rotherham’s results away from home either as The Millers have collected just one victory from their last 46 matches on the road in the Championship which is a staggeringly woeful record to possess.

Needless to say Rotherham’s away record therefore reads a poor 1-8-12 16/39 and their best bet of getting anything out of this clash at the Liberty Stadium would appear to to try and grind out a draw.

This may be easier said than done though as Swansea have shown in recent times that they know how to win on home turf.

Betting Tips Verdict

Swansea City will be eager to continue their winning streak at home whilst Rotherham’s woes on the road look set to continue here.
