Rotherham vs Sheffield United Predictions & Match Preview

Rotherham vs Sheffield United
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-off at 12.30 UK/ 13.30 CET
Venue: Aesseal New York Stadium (Rotherham).

Rotherham, hanging above the relegation zone by a whisker, hosts one of the top teams in the Championship, at the Aesseal, to take part in the 18th round of this second division English Football.

Sheff Utd played out a draw, at home, against Sheff Wed, from the bottom tier of the league. It would be classified as an opportunity missed by the Sheff Utd fans to have registered an easy victory and to have improved the goal difference. McGoldrick will be crestfallen that he missed the golden chance to grab his team three points, as his penalty misfired. The game ended in a goalless draw.

Rotherham will be pleased with their efforts last weekend against Blackburn. Blackburn, despite having the home advantage, couldn’t capitalize on it and had to settle for a draw with the much lower-placed Rotherham. At one point it even seemed that Rotherham might pull off an upset.

The scores remained tied at 0-0 till the 75th minute before Smith fired the visitors to the front. But the joy did not last long, as Blackburn equalized five minutes later through Dack. The game ended 1-1.
