Rotherham United vs Peterborough United: Preview and Predictions

Rotherham United vs Peterborough United
England – League One
Date: Friday, 30 March 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: AESSEAL New York Stadium (Rotherham).

Rotherham’s form has encountered a couple of stumbling blocks throughout the season in this term of League One. They will be looking to arrest one of such slumps on Friday afternoon when the sixth-placed Posh come to visit AESSEAL New York Stadium in the derby of the Matchday.

The Millers have lost ground on the top three sides in the competition after losing three of last four league outings. They are, however, still pretty safe when it comes to booking a spot in the promotional playoffs being eight points above seventh Plymouth Argyle at the moment. Nonetheless, a potential defeat to Peterborough on Friday evening could compromise their position given that the Posh are level on points with the mentioned Plymouth right on the brink of the playoffs.

The good news for Paul Warne is Peterborough’s form since the visitors will head into this after claiming just a single point in last three league contests. The Posh have first fell 2-1 to Oxford United at The Kassam Stadium before failing to beat the likes of Bristol Rovers at their ABAX Stadium. Away from home, the Posh have won just one of last six games across competition.

Rotherham United vs Peterborough United: Head-to-head

Peterborough United have been slightly more successful over the history as they lead the H2H tie by two wins coming into 22nd meeting with the Millers.

Nonetheless, the Posh have not had much luck in matches played at AESSEAL New York Stadium where they’ve managed to come on top only once on nine occasions (four wins for Rotherham at the same time).

Peterborough United have clinched the narrow 2-1 victory when the two teams met in this term of League One at ABAX Stadium.

Instead, the value is with Peterborough United who are 4.20 to produce an upset at AESSEAL New York Stadium.
