Millwall vs Rotherham United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in need of points at the bottom end of the Championship. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Millwall will hope to build on the FA Cup Fourth Round success last weekend as they eliminated Everton 3-2 thanks to a goal each from Lee Gregory, Jake Cooper and Murray Wallace. The Lions last played in the league on January 19th and drew 1-1 at Middlesbrough with Jed Wallace getting the goal.

Rotherham made it three straight defeats last weekend going down 2-1 to Yorkshire rivals Leeds. Semi Ajayi had given them the lead after just 28 minutes but they could not hold on to the leaders.

The reverse fixture came on August 26th and United won that one 1-0 thanks to a Sean Raggett goal. It stretches the run to three straight head-to-head victories against the London team.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Millwall are strong favourites to win this game and given the confidence they will have from beating Everton it is hard to argue with that. Rotherham will be stubborn opposition but the Lions will come out flying and with them netting in the opening 25 minutes of three of their last four at home back them to be ahead at half-time and then again at full-time.

Millwall Preview

The Lions are winless in their last two in the league but have lost just one of the last five and taken ten points. They sit 19th in the table which has them three places and five points above the drop zone.

At the Den, the London side have won two of their last three but have won just two of their last six. None of the last three and just one of their last five league matches in front of their own fans has seen both teams score.

Millwall have seen just one of their last six in the Championship go over 2.5 goals with three of these going under 1.5. In three of their last four at their own place they have scored in the first 25 minutes in two inside the first ten.

 

Millwall Team News

Conor McLaughlin and Tom Elliott (both unknown) are doubts while Ben Amos (finger) will miss the next month. Tom Bradshaw (knee) is out for the remainder of the season.

Rotherham United Preview

The Millers have lost three straight and six of their last seven and are deep in the relegation battle. They are 21st which would be safety but just one point is between them and Reading in 22nd.

Away from the New York Stadium, the Yorkshire outfit have not won a Championship road game since April 2016. They have managed a divisional low of just eight goals on their travels.

Not since October 23rd have Rotherham kept a clean sheet in the league and only Ipswich (50) have conceded more than the 48 they have shipped. Just 19 of the 50 goals they have conceded have come in the first-half.

Rotherham United Team News

Semi Ajayi (knee), Clark Robertson (ankle) and Richie Towell (illness) are all doubts while Jamie Proctor (hip), Joe Newell (groin) and Ryan Williams (hamstring) are long-term absentees.
