Rotherham vs Bristol City
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 3 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: AESSEAL New York Stadium (Rotherham).
Bristol City have struggled to find their form from back in late August and early September and they travel to Rotherham for their Matchday 11 clash on Wednesday evening looking for a return to the winning ways after three games without one.
Robins have shown off as a tough side to beat as they held Aston Villa to a 1-1 draw on Friday but the results on the road will be more worrying, as Lee Johnson’s men suffered losses at West Bromwich and Wigan Athletic on their last two trips. They will now want to pick it up in the attacking third and promise a solid challenge.
Rotherham have seen similar woes recently and they earned just one win in their last six outings, suffering four losses and only ending such a streak with a 2-2 home draw against Stoke City. They have been scoring more goals at AESSEAL New York Stadium and obviously hope to put on a strong challenge, but shutting down Bristol City could prove a tough task too!
