Luton vs Rotherham
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 4 May 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Kenilworth Road.
The Millers are desperate for a win, as they are still stuck in the relegation zone with just two more games remaining. The in-form Hatters will easily take advantage of this and have high chances of posting the three points on the board.
As of now, Paul Warne’s men are one of the worst teams in the Championship. They are placed 22nd in the table, and will have to overtake the 21st placed Derby to avoid getting the boot. Note that Derby have a lead of three points.
Thus the Millers will be forced to go after goals right from the get-go. But they already have a struggling defense, and have been conceding goals in plenty. Moreover, they are also on the road, where they have been a disaster all through this campaign.
Meanwhile, Nathan Jones’s men are one of the best in the Championship in terms of recent form. In fact, they are one of the only three squads in the league to stay unbeaten in the past five fixtures, and they have displayed good defensive prowess lately.
In addition, the Hatters also have a good h2h record against this rival in the recent past. By the looks of things, expect Luton to emerge victorious this Tuesday at the Kenilworth Road.
Luton vs Rotherham: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse encounter had ended in a 0-1 win for Jones’s men.
- They had kept clean sheets in the past two meetings, and had also won these two clashes.
- They had scored a total of nine goals from the last four match-ups.
- Since 2000, the hosts have scored two or more goals in all but one encounter at this venue.
Luton vs Rotherham Prediction
The Hatters were held to a 1-1 draw the last match-day, by Middlesbrough. In the meantime, Warne’s men were held to a 1-1 draw by Blackburn.
Going on, Jones’s men are on a five-match unbeaten run, and of these three were wins. They were also invincible in 14 of their past 18 appearances at home, and had kept clean sheets in three of their former five home games.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in nine of their last ten overall fixtures, and seven of these were losses. In addition, they also have an inferior h2h record against this foe in the past few seasons.
For the reasons, expect Luton to overcome this challenge easily, and considering the desperation of Rotherham, expect goals in huge numbers as well.
