Rotherham vs Blackburn
Date: Saturday, 1 May 2021
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: AESSEAL New York Stadium.
Rotherham will try and catch their last train in the battle for avoiding the drop to League One on Saturday afternoon when they host Blackburn Rovers at AESSEAL New York Stadium.
The Millers were victims on a brutal schedule in the last couple of weeks as a series of postponed fixtures forced them play a game every three days.
The well congested schedule caused a dismal five-defeat run, one that significantly halted the club’s push towards safe waters.
The latest of Rotherham’s failures came on Tuesday evening when they fell 1-0 away at 3rd-placed Brentford.
Paul Warne’s men still have a chance to rescue themselves at the death of the campaign. They are four points behind Derby County in the safe zone, but they have a game in hand on the Rams. Either way, this is a must-win match for them.
Rotherham vs Blackburn Head-to-head
The Millers will play against the tradition here as they managed to beat Blackburn just twice in eleven head to head encounters.
On the bright side, Rotherham are unbeaten in the last three home outings against the Riversiders. They’ve won the last one 2-1 in March 2019.
Both teams scored in six of the last seven head to head affairs.
Rotherham vs Blackburn Prediction
Unlike their counterparts, Blackburn have nothing but pride to play for here. They are on a safe distance from the red zone with just two games left to play.
However, it did not prevent them from scoring five goals in the thrashing of Huddersfield Town seven days ago at Ewood Park.
Adam Armstrong stole the show by completing a hat-trick and thus taking his league tally to 24 goals this term.
On a more positive note for the hosts, Blackburn have been struggling on recent travels. Tony Mowbray’s troops won just one of the last nine away games in the competition.
Under these circumstances, we have to back the home win at the sky-high 2.50 odds because the motivation factor will play the biggest role in this one.
The alternative pick is Under 2.5 goals FT at the 1.90 odds.
