Rotherham vs Cardiff City
League Championship – England

Kick-Off: 15:00 UK
Venue: New York Stadium.

Two struggling teams in the England League Championship Rotherham United and Cardiff City will battle it out at Asseal New York Stadium, with the two teams searching for a win.

The home side Rotherham have been winless in their last 4 games, they will enter this game from a 4-2 away defeat against Blackburn. They were unfortunate to loose the game as they scored the first goal of the game through D. Ward who later grabbed a brace. However, goals from C. Conway, M. Emnes, B. Marshall and S. Gallagher made sure Blackburn got a deserved home win ahead of Rotherham.

Cardiff City have been on the receiving end this season, they are currently rocking the bottom of the table with 5 points. Furthermore, they are winless in their last 5 games and will enter this game from 0-2 home defeat at the hands of Leeds United. C. Wood’s spot kick gave Leeds the lead while Pablo Hernandez sealed the victory in the 82nd minute.

Both teams will continue in search of victory to get a chance of leaving the danger zone in the table.

Rotherham vs Cardiff City: Prediction

This is a tough one, considering the poor form of the two teams involved. There are no favorite in this games as the two teams have been on a winless streak.

The home team have been on a 4 game winless streak, with 2 defeats and 2 draws. The goos thing is they have been good upfront, they have scored 2 goals in each of their last 3 games. They need to focus on their defense, having conceded at least 2 goals in each of their last 4 games.

The visitors have the poorest form in the league, they are winless in their last 5 games with 4 defeats and a draw. They have failed to score in 3 of their past 4 games, and have conceded at least 2 goals in each of their last 3 games.

Rotherham have drawn their last 2 home games, scoring at least 2 goals while Cardiff have lost their last 2 away games but have scored at least 2 goals in 2 of their last 3 away games. The home team will likely win the game, but I expect both teams to get on the score sheet.
