Rotherham vs Barnsley: Prediction

Rotherham’s best results in recent weeks have come at home, but Barnsley are an equally capable team while playing on the road. Therefore, an away win is very much on the cards especially when Barnsley have a strong h2h record over their opponents.

The home team can be adventurous with a heavy focus on attack and therefore we can expect a high scoring affair. Both teams to score is also an alternate option for this fixture.
