Rotherham United vs Ipswich Town Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides who have been tipped to struggle this season. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Rotherham had a terrible start to life back in the Championship going down to a comprehensive 5-1 defeat at Brentford. They found themselves one down after four minutes and four down after the hour and a late Will Vaulks goal was little more than a consolation effort. Ipswich battled out a draw with Blackburn in their opener needing a late goal to rescue a 2-2 draw. They had taken the lead through Gwion Edwards but needed a 91st minute Adetayo Edun goal to take a point. These two sides last met in April 2017 with the Yorkshire outfit winning on that occasion 1-0 thanks to a Tom Adeyemi goal (Adeyemi now plays for Ipswich). United are unbeaten in their last three meetings with Town and have lost just one of their last five head-to-head battles.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Rotherham are the marginal favourite for the game though few will be rushing to back them after a poor first day. It remains to be seen how much of that was down to them and how much Brentford being strong. Ipswich looked solid against Blackburn but it is hard to make a case for them being value here. Given they shipped five I think the Millers will look to keep things tight early while Ipswich will look to be patient using the pace of Edwards and Harrison on the break so take them game to have no early goal and the second 45 minutes to be the highest scoring half.

NO goal before 32:00

Second-half to be the highest scoring 45 minutes

Rotherham United Preview

The Millers were a strong home team in League One last season winning a joint-top high of 15 games from 23. If you include extra-time they have won each of their last five and ten of their last 12 home matches. Only Blackburn (45) scored more than the 43 home goals that Rotherham bagged in League One in the previous campaign. Richard Wood has three in his last two at home while Will Vaulks has two in the last three. The Yorkshire outfit conceded 23 times in front of their own fans which was the joint-sixth best record in the division. They kept a clean sheet in each of their last three regular season games at the New York Stadium.

Rotherham United Team News

Darren Potter (Achilles) is out until the New Year while Jamie Proctor (knee) is a doubt.

Ipswich Town Preview

The Tractor Boys struggled a little on the road last season losing 12 of their 23 though they also won eight times. They won just one of their last five on the road at the end of the last campaign. They grabbed 28 away goals last season which was a middle of the table goalscoring record for the Championship. The Suffolk outfit failed to find the back of the net in three of their last five road trips. The 33 away goals that Ipswich conceded last season is also a mark that finds them in the middle of the table for defensive sides. They did though concede just eight times in the ten final visits.

Ipswich Town Team News

Joe Garner, Emyr Huws (both knee), Danny Rowe, Jordan Spence and Teddy Bishop (both unknown) are all doubtful.
