Rotherham vs Bolton Predictions and Match Preview

Rotherham United vs Bolton Wanderers
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 20th October 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Aesseal New York Stadium (Rotherham).

Rotherham faces Bolton in a battle near the end of the table. It can hardly be a joy to watch for neutral fans as these are the lowest scoring sides in the league with 9 and 10 goals scored so far respectively.

Rotherham sits 2 points above relegation the team lost the majority of its games but has just 2 draws which climbs it out of the relegation zone. Still the Millers form looks abysmal and they have picked just 2 points from their last 5 games. The struggle for goals is evident and this is their main weakness.

Before the international break Rotherham United lost a crucial game. They visited St Andrews going against local Birmingham City. The Blues striker Jutkiewicz was the star of the evening banging 3 goals and deciding the game in his teams favour. United managed to get a consolation goal but nothing more than that.

Bolton Wanderers are sitting just 4 points and 3 places above their current opponents. The team barely survived last season and now looks to be in the mix again. Wanderers are looking confident at the back but when it comes to scoring goals there’s a whole new story. The team fails to create and convert chances leading to huge loss of points.

Last round Wanderers like Rotherham suffered a crucial defeat. They went at home against newly promoted Blackburn hoping to earn a point or 3 but failed to do so. In an even game Bradley Dack’s goal in the 22nd minute of the fixture gave the visitors all the points.
