Accrington vs Rotherham Prediction

Accrington picked up a third consecutive win last week by taking down Lincoln at home in a seven-goal thriller. Despite their counterparts taking the lead on three separate occasions in that latter matchup, the hosts mustered a response every single time, and found the winning goal, in the dying minutes of stoppage time.

The home team have now admitted defeat just once in their past five games in the third division. As of now, Accrington are fourteenth on the ladder with thirty-nine points in the bag.

On the other hand, Rotherham were held to a 2-2 draw in their most recent clash with AFC Wimbledon. Although they did drop points, the visitors are still holding on to the top spot in the table, albeit on goal difference.

It is also worth mentioning that the guests are unbeaten in their past four games. Furthermore, to be frank, Rotherham have been faring a lot better on the road than at home this season. In fact, the guests are sporting the best away statistics in the cluster, as we speak.

Meanwhile, Accrington have stumbled six times already on home soil. To make matters worse, the hosts have not secured the bragging rights in their past three meetings with this foe here.

Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this clash also saw Rotherham come out on top, Accrington are the underdogs to taste success this weekend.

However, the visitors have shared the spoils two times on the road this term. Considering that one of their last two trips visits here had also ended as a tie, back a draw no bet, just to be on the safer side.

Additionally, Rotherham have been depending on their frontline to outscore their opponents, as they have been easy to breach in their own defensive third. In fact, they have conceded nine goals from their past six outings.

Moreover, Accrington have found the back of the net six times from their previous two games at home. Given that neither side have kept a clean in their past five h2h meetings here either, expect both teams to have their scoring boots on in this one.
