Millwall vs Rotherham Prediction & Match Preview

Millwall vs Rotherham
English Championship
Date: Saturday, 2 February 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: The Den (London).

It may be another underwhelming campaign for Millwall in this term of Championship, but they kept the FA Cup fairy-tale going seven days ago dispatching Premier League side Everton 3-2 at The Den to advance into the fifth round.

Monday’s draw gave them the easiest opposition possible there as the Lions will play League One strugglers AFC Wimbledon for a place in the sixth round of the competition.

Neil Harris’ men have three league games to play before the mentioned tie with the Wombles. The first is scheduled for this Saturday and it will be a very much winnable contest against relegation strugglers Rotherham United.

The Millers are the team with the worst away record in the entire division. They are the only outfit without a single victory on travels (4 draws and 10 defeats in 14 games). Furthermore, Rotherham come into this off the back of four consecutive losses in all competitions.

Millwall vs Rotherham: Head-to-head

The Millers can, however, rely on the head to head tradition here as they won each of last three meetings with Millwall.

Rotherham won in two of past three visits to The Den.

Overall, the Lions still lead the head to head tie by a single win coming into 18th encounter with the Millers.

Millwall vs Rotherham: Prediction

This is a very important relegation six-pointer for both sides. Millwall still have to work hard to secure survival on the second division as they are just four points adrift of Rotherham who sit right on the brink of the danger area.

We just have to fancy the hosts to claim the spoils at 1.61 as they won four of past five games at The Den. Given they’ll be up against Rotherham who lost four on the bounce in all competitions and who claimed 4 points from 14 away fixtures in this term, the home win has to be the only logical betting option here.

Additionally, Millwall notched three goals past Everton last weekend and we surely expect them to bag two or more against the team with the second weakest defensive record in the entire league here.
