Rotherham vs Birmingham
England – Championship
Date: Monday, 22nd April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Aesseal New York Stadium (Rotherham).
Rotherham is in the relegation zone, and with just 12 points remaining to play for, the team is playing with fire. They need to overcome a deficit of just two points, but the reality is that that is going against some similarly determined teams who have vowed to take part in the next edition of the Championship. Going forward, their defensive woes will definitely be a thorn to be dealt with.
Birmingham is slowly coming to terms with the nine-point deduction they were punished with by the federation. The deduction and their subsequent dismal run seem like a thing of the past. But the effects of the period have left them to fight off the relegation line. They will have to hold on to the six-point gap they currently enjoy over the exit line.

Rotherham vs Birmingham Prediction
Birmingham has performed wonderfully well against this team in the past. They recorded four of the last five h2h wins, and importantly, holds a 100% unbeaten record against them at this venue. Moreover, the low-tier placing of Birmingham is practically a mirage. Nine points were deducted from their tally and had not that happened, the team would have been fighting to make the playoffs. On the other hand, Rotherham is in the relegation zone, with just four match-days remaining. Expect Birmingham to avoid a loss at any cost.
The game won’t be that straightforward for them though. Rotherham is desperate to avoid the boot to League One and does have the home advantage. Moreover, the last three h2h encounters and six of the last nine had goals from both teams. Finally, Rotherham failed to score in only two of their last nine meetings against Birmingham.
Count on these two spirited squads to get in on the goal-scoring action, at this crucial juncture of the season.
