Derby vs Rotherham Prediction & Match Preview

Derby vs Rotherham
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 30th March 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Pride Park (Derby).

Two teams with different mindsets and aspirations, take on each other, with just one aim in mind. Derby needs this win to eliminate their one-point deficit and be included in the playoff mix. For Rotherham, it’s a matter of life and death. They are in the relegation zone, and with the end of the season fast approaching, the threat is looking more real now.

Rotherham’s faulty defense has always been their bane. They have conceded 61 goals so far in the competition, one of the worst returns of all the 24 teams in contention. And on top of that, they have scored the second-fewest number of goals in the league. The team needs to find some quick solutions to rescue their season from being a disaster.
