Date: Saturday, 22 September 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: The City Ground (Nottingham).
Nottingham picked up their second win of the season on Wednesday when they defeated the in-form Sheffield Wednesday side 2-1 at The City Ground. The Reds will thus come into the weekend’s affair with the struggling Rotherham in high spirits aiming to make it back-to-back wins and keep the push for the top-six finish in this term of the Championship.
The visitors have completely opposite ambitions after returning to the second tier football. They will face hard times saving such status until the end of the season with the squad Paul Warne currently has on disposal.
The Millers with 18th in the league ladder and they’ll come into this off the back of three defeats in last four outings across competitions.

Nottingham vs Rotherham: Prediction
Lewis Grabban and Joao Carvalho notched goals for Nottm in mid-week’s success against the Owls. The team offered strong defensive displays in the last couple of fixtures conceding just once in two games with Swansea City and Sheffield Wednesday.
Rotherham lost all five away games in the season in all competitions failing to score more than twice along the way. We thus have to see the home win as a genuine banker at the odds of 1.61. You can alternatively back the hosts to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.40.
Nottingham have an impressive home record this season. They won five and drew one of last six games at The City Ground and it’s really hardtop expect them to drop points against the league newcomers here.
