Rotherham United vs Bristol City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Wednesday evening (19:45) fixture features two sides in opposite halves of the Championship table and is live on Sky Sports behind the red button. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Rotherham stopped their run of back-to-back defeats but are three without a win following a 2-2 draw with Stoke. The Millers seemed on course for all three points as they lead with 40 minutes to go through a Ryan Manning penalty and Richard Towell goal but had to settle for a draw.

Bristol City put to an end a two-game losing run but stretched their winless record to three with a 1-1 home draw against Aston Villa. Josh Brownhill put them ahead early but they can have few complaints about the result in a game low on chances.

These two sides were in different divisions last season so you have to go back to the 2016/17 season for their last meetings. The Robins are unbeaten in three against the Millers but have won just one of the last six head-to-heads.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Bristol City look too short to be siding with here given they have taken just one point from their last three while Rotherham have been impressive at home this season losing just one of their five and seeing off the likes of Derby, Millwall and Ipswich.

The Robins are the joint-third highest scorers on the road this season while the Millers have managed to net in each of their five at their own ground so take both teams to score and the game to have over 2.5 goals which could also be combined in a double.

Rotherham United Preview

The Millers have taken just one point from their last three and have won just one of their last five but are keeping their noses above the drop zone. They sit in 18th place with ten points all of which have come at home.

At the New York Stadium, they have been strong this season with three victories, one draw and just one defeat. All three of their victories have come by the same 1-0 scoreline while the two they have not won have gone over 3.5 goals and seen both teams win.

Rotherham are 17th in the goals per game table with an average of 2.4 per fixture and seven of their ten going under 2.5. Five of their ten have produced an exact total of just a solitary goal.

Rotherham United Team News

Clark Robertson (groin) is a doubt while Darren Potter (Achilles) and Sean Raggett (back) will not be back before Christmas.

Bristol City Preview

The Robins have taken just one point from their last three which came on the back of a four-game winning run and their form seems streaky. They sit tenth in the table with 15 points 13 of which have come in their last seven.

Away from Ashton Gate, they have had a mixed bag with two victories, one draw and two defeats from five. Four of the five goals Andreas Weimann has netted this campaign have come on the road.

Bristol City have seen just four of their ten go over 2.5 goals and just one of their previous four. Five of their ten this season have seen both teams find the back of the net including three of their last five.

 

Bristol City Team News

Tomas Kalas (broken jaw), Bailey Wright (quad), Eros Pisano, Frank Fielding (both hip), Mo Eisa and Hakeeb Adelakun (both ankle) are all set to miss the next few weeks while Korey Smith (knee) is out until the New Year.
