Rotherham vs Burton Prediction

In the due course of the league with 18 more games remaining for each team, Rotherham has taken an early position at the top of the table in the campaign. They have equaled their points with Wycombe and are just a few points away from the remaining four top part teams.

However, when facing a team in the middle of the league table, the toppers will be the favorites to win at the most probability in the match. The punters will also have the host in their mind as a safe bet.

Rotherham will also have their home ground advantage in the clash. They are on a four-game winning streak in the league home matches. Also, the Brewers have lost only four of their 14 home matches in the campaign so far.

Another comfort for Paul Warne is that his team will be on their second consecutive home match in their fixture. The previous one being the 1-0 victory against Ipswich. It was their third win in their last five overall league clashes.

In addition to that, Burton is not on a raging form at taking points in their away fixtures. They had only two wins in their prior five away games in the league. Also, they have a mixed form on the road with five each win and losses out of 14 away matches so far in the campaign.

Brewers had their previous encounter also on the road. They faced AFC Wimbledon and both teams scored a brace each in ninety minutes to end the clash in a 2-2 draw. It was their second consecutive draw in their overall fixture.

Hence, the options are wide for the punters with Rotherham showing more chances to create opportunities in the game. Also, Burton doesn’t look like an easy one so we can expect a fightback from the visitors. So, both teams are likely to score goals in the match.
