Rotherham vs Peterborough: Prediction

The Millers snapped their four-game winless run with a super late 2-1 victory over Shrewsbury Town on Boxing Day. Prior to that, Paul Warne’s boys were involved in entertaining 2-2 draws with Southend Utd on the road and Fleetwood at home.

With 7 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses to date, Rotherham are currently 5th, just two points behind second-placed Ipswich and will be looking to keep the momentum going when they take on fellow playoff contender this weekend.

Rotherham have recorded three wins, three draws and four losses at home, averaging 1.50 goals scored per game, whilst conceding a goal per bout. They’ve lost three of their last five home games.

Peterborough United are coming off of a disappointing 0-3 home defeat to 14th-placed Doncaster Rovers that ended their unbeaten run of four matches in which they collected eight points and registered three clean sheets.

With 36 points on the board, Posh are 4th on the ladder, one point ahead of their next opponent and seven points off of the league leaders, Wycombe.

Darren Ferguson’s men have three wins, four draws and four defeats away from Weston Homes Stadium, netting 1.64 goals per match and allowing 1.45 in return. The Posh have shared the spoiles with Bristol Rovers (0-0) and Portsmouth (2-2) in their latest away fixtures.

I’m willing to back the hosts in DNB market here. They come into this game on the back of a morale-boosting win achieved seven minutes into stoppages, whilst Peterborough completely fell apart against tricky Donnie.

With another 2-1 or 2-2 hunch, I’ll try Over 2.5 goals here. The Millers have scored two or more in six of their last eight league outings and Posh have the best attacking record in the competition with 43 goals.

Their star duo Ivan Toney – Mohamed Eisa have bagged 27 league goals combined this season.
