Rotherham United vs Ipswich Town
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 11th August 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Aesseal New York Stadium (Rotherham).
Rotherham had a tough reality check in the first round after getting promoted. The team now faces Ipswich town at home hoping for points.
Rotherham tale after their return to the EFL Championship didn’t start so well. The team was literally bombarded by Brentford and took 5 goals in the process. A 5-1 defeat against a mid-table team from last season means a lot of trouble for the side.
The Millers took immediate promotion last season after getting relegated the previous one. The team had limited budget and may struggle throughout the season. Home games like this one will be vital for the team’s survival hopes.
Ipswich were hoping for a positive start last Saturday against a newly promoted Blackburn. It wasn’t meant to be as The Tractor boys barely scraped a point at home. It was thanks to Tayo Edun’s effort in the last minutes of the game that Ipswich avoided defeat.
The tractor boys will be a different team this season after Mick McCarty’s departure last season. Hurst is a bit different type of manager and it will be interesting to see how the team will perform this year.

Rotherham United vs Ipswich: Predictions
Rotherham was relegated early in their last Championship season following a disastrous campaign. So far the team doesn’t look so much different and may suffer similar faith. Ipswich are a decent side and will be looking to avoid defeat and even get the better of Rotherham.
