Brentford vs Rotherham
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 4th August 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Griffin Park (Brentford).
Rotherham face a tough welcoming back into the league. The Millers travel to Griffin Park for a game against Brentford.
The Bees had an interesting season. The team started badly but later managed to improve. Brentford was close to the play offs most of the second part of the season but always lacking something to quite reach them. Dean Smith and his boys will be keen to improve on that 9th position finish last year.
Brentford had a decent pre-season preparations. 3 victories and 2 losses against sides of different stature and quality. One thing though looked a bit worrying. The team let some easy goals in and if that trend continues it will be hard for them in the Championship.
Rotherham bounced straight back to this level following their relegation in 16-17 season. The team needed play-offs though but still was stable enough to eventually clinch that promotion.
The Millers also had a good pre-season. The team looked sharp notching 4 victories in 6 games losing just 1. The loss came against Mansfield with 2-1 but a particular highlight was a victory with the same result against Premier League side Cardiff.
