Rotherham vs Nottingham Forest
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 6th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Aesseal New York Stadium (Rotherham).
Nottingham may be a major player in the race for playoffs, but it needs to be noted that almost all of their heroics have come at home. They struggle on the road, and by some magnitude. They are just three points off a position that affords a shot at the Premier League as of now, and time is running out for them to rectify their problems away from home.
Rotherham is in the relegation zone. They have 36 points as of now and needs a surplus of just a single point to avoid a boot to League One. They have been better at home and going forward, the team will be looking to cash in on their one strong point.

Rotherham vs Nottingham Forest Prediction
Nottingham is on a streak of 11 winless matches on the road. They also remained so in 18 of their last 21 attempts away from home. Rotherham, meanwhile, is desperate for some points. They are in the relegation zone and needs to overcome a deficit of one point from the next seven match-days to seal their fate in the Championship. They have lost only once at home against this team, and that too 17 years back. Coupled that to Forest’s dismal form on the road, the hosts should avoid a loss at all costs.
But Nottingham is one of the prominent teams in the top half of the table, and they won’t just roll over for Rotherham. The visitors will make life hard for the latter. In this fiercely contested tie, expect Forest to take advantage of their experience battling in the top-tier, and score at least once, whereas count on the home team to capitalize on Forest’s recent stumbles in road trips, and find the back of the net as well.
