Rotherham United vs Portsmouth
English League One
Date: Saturday, 20 January 2018
Kick-Off at: 15:00 UK
Venue: AESSEAL New York Stadium, Rotherham
After suffering the relegation from the Championship and seeing so many important players leave the team, no one was giving a lot of chances to Rotherham United to play a big role in this year’s edition of League One. The Millers have started the campaign in a very slow manner, but that changed drastically in the last couple of months. One of the strongest fixtures in the 28th round is happening this Saturday at AESSEAL New York Stadium where Rotherham welcomes Portsmouth.
The Pompeys are currently a better positioned team on the table. They have collected one more point than their upcoming opponents, and both are on the edge of entering the playoffs zone. When it comes to the most recent form and results, hosts should have a small advantage.
Paul Warne is surely happy with the performances in the last 60 days. Rotherham are undefeated for seven games in a row, and having won the majority of them. It is true that their back line rarely keeps a clean sheet, but offense is doing a phenomenal work. Millers scored 45 goals in 27 games, which is making them the third most efficient team in the division. Portsmouth are way behind with 34.
Rotherham United vs Portsmouth: Head-to-head
These opponents met only six times in the past, just twice at this stadium. The score when it comes to victories is tied at 2-2, and the average number of goals seen in these duels is almost 3.00.
Rotherham United vs Portsmouth: Prediction
Staying undefeated against in-form Blackburn Rovers two weeks ago was a tough task, but Rotherham pulled it out eventually. I feel they have the advantage over Portsmouth at this moment, but stake on home win shouldn’t be high.
