Bristol City vs Rotherham United Match Prediction

By Charlotte Louise Bushell

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) clash is an important game at the bottom of the table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

A Lee Tomlin penalty and a Tammy Abraham strike gave Bristol City a crucial point last time out as they drew 2-2 with Sheffield Wednesday and put to an end a horrible run that had seen them lose eight straight league games.

Rotherham battled hard at Nottingham Forest, but they paid the price for gifting the hosts a penalty and failing to pick up on the run of Britt Assombalonga who grabbed both goals in the East Midlands side 2-0 success.

This pair have drawn their last two meetings including in the reverse fixture back in September that ended in a 2-2 draw with Isaiah Brown and an Aden Flint own goal putting the Millers 2-0 ahead before the Robins fought back to earn a point with strikes from Tammy Abraham and Bobby Reid.

Bristol City Preview

The Robins will hope that the point with Sheffield Wednesday last time out represents a turning point, and they can go and get all three points and register a first home victory since December 3rd.

At home to sides around them, City have a decent recent record with three victories from their last five versus teams in the bottom half with Blackburn, Ipswich and Nottingham Forest, their victims.

Each of the last four home matches has gone over 2.5 goals and has seen both teams find the back of the net. The Robins will look to Tammy Abraham to keep firing as he has six in the last six league fixtures. He could be supported by Matt Taylor who controversially signed from local rivals Blackburn Rovers on deadline day where he has 16 league one goals.

Rotherham Preview

Five defeats from their last six league games is bleak reading for Rotherham and just one away point this season means the Milers are a big price to win this game.

It is now four straight road trips without a goal for the Yorkshire side, and they have shipped a whopping 42 goals from their 15 away matches this season in the league.

Top scorer Darren Ward did not move before the January deadline, so if Rotherham are to pull off the incredible great escape, then he will need to add to the nine goals he has already this season.

Betting Predictions and Tips

15 of the last 18 goals in Rotherham games have come in the second half so it might be worth a little play on the draw half-time/Bristol city full-time result.

You can also get decent odds on the game to be goalless at half-time, and this looks worth a play as Rotherham have frustrated better teams than Bristol City early on.
