Lincoln City vs Rotherham Prediction

Lincoln lost on the road the last match-day against Southend. The fact that the hosts scored the winner in the 90+6th minute would be extremely demotivating for the former come this next match-day.

Meanwhile, Rotherham registered a 3-2 comeback win at home over Burton the prior game week. It was their fourth win in the past five games, and the win highlighted just how serious the team was about getting back into the Championship.

Quite easily the guests, Rotherham, are expected to win this Friday. Not only are they the toppers of the league, but they do have the added experience of spending time in the Championship, while Lincoln are extremely underexposed due to their stint in the League Two.

Moreover, Rotherham had won seven of their last nine overall fixtures, and were unbeaten in ten of their past thirteen games. On the other hand, Lincoln are on a three-match losing run as of now. To pile on, Rotherham have a 100% winning record in league h2h clashes at this venue, and they had won ten of the past twelve overall h2h games.

Likely, expect Rotherham to post the three points on the board this Friday. However, do note that Lincoln are desperate to avoid relegation, and they have pretty much nothing to lose. On top of that, they had won their reverse fixture, that too on the road, and recorded a combined scoreline of 5-0 from the past two h2h clashes.

As such, expect the BTTS bet to give good returns this weekend.
