Rotherham United vs Leeds United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture is an important one at the bottom end of the table as it features the side in 21st at home to the top placed team. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Rotherham have suffered back-to-back league defeats in the Championship going down 4-2 at home to Brentford last time out. Jon Taylor and then an own-goal twice pulled them level but they could not do it a third time as the Bees secured all the points.

Leeds suffered their third loss from the last four in the league as they went down to a 2-1 defeat away at Stoke. United can have few complaints about the result in a game that saw Ezgjan Alioski net and Pontus Jansson get a red card.

The reverse fixture came in August at Elland Road and it was the Whites won on that occasion 2-0. Luke Ayling and Kemar Roofe netted in a game the hosts were the better side in.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Leeds have been handed a nice game to get back to winning ways against a Rotherham side struggling for form and starting to lose the home fortress. That being said this is a Yorkshire derby and the price is short enough to avoid.

Both teams to score makes sense as it has happened in seven of the last eight at the New York Stadium and the Millers only failing to net twice at their own place this season. You can add this to the price on a Leeds win to squeeze out more value.

 

YES in the both teams to score market

Rotherham United Preview

The Millers struggles continues with five defeats from their last six and just one victory in the last 12. They sit 21st in the table and are just two points above the relegation zone and Reading who are in 22nd.

At the New York Stadium, they have lost two of their last three and won just one of the previous six. Both teams to score has happened in seven of their last eight in the league at their own place.

Rotherham United Team News

Joe Newell (groin) and Darren Potter (ankle) are doubts while  Jamie Proctor (also groin) has been ruled out for the season.

Leeds United Preview

Three defeats from the last four and the row over spying has put pressure on Marcelo Bielsa and United. They are still top of the but they are just one ahead of Norwich and just four above West Brom and Sheffield United in third and fourth.

Away from Elland Road, the Yorkshire outfit have lost their last two and four of the previous eight. Each of their last three on the road have seen both teams find the back of the net and gone over 2.5 goals.

Leeds have seen 11 goals in their last three matches but eight of these have come in the second 45 minutes. They would be as low as 15th in a table settled on scorelines going into the break.

Leeds United Team News

Barry Douglas (muscle), Patrick Bamford, Izzy Brown (all knee) and Stuart Dallas (foot) are doubts while Gaetano Berardi (hamstring) is a long-term absentee. Kalvin Phillips is available after a suspension through Pontus Jansson will begin his.
