Blackpool vs Rotherham Prediction

Blackpool aims to retain their spot in the top six as they are eyeing their fourth home win of the season. The host has lost only one out of the last five league home ties. Also, they have lost two of the last twelve appearances in the league.

From their h2h clashes, it has to be noted that the Seasiders have not defeated their foes in the past 14 years. Also, their previous encounter was in 2018. Apart from that, the Millers are on a three-game winless run on the road while the host has won three of the last five home ties. Given Rotherham’s poor away record, there is still a chance for the host to strike back.

Besides that, the Seasiders did well to beat Lincoln City in their last home game in the English third tier. Meanwhile, the guest lost to Bristol Rovers in their last away fixture in their schedule. Alongside that, both teams have scored goals in three of the last four encounters with each other.

As such, the clash sizes up to an intense battle with goals netted at both ends of the field. From the above stats, one can expect the host to win the game or hold the guest for a draw.
