Rotherham vs Shrewsbury
England – League 1
Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Aesseal New York Stadium (Rotherham).
If not for their game against Bolton, which obviously was a lucky break, Rotherham would have been winless for this whole league season in front of the home crowd. Of the total 12 goals the team has scored so far, six came against the hapless Bolton itself.
Suffice it to say, despite having the home advantage, the squad is not high on confidence.
Almost similar is the case of Shrewsbury on the road. This campaign they have registered a single victory away from home, and the one before that had come in the month of April.
Moreover, a month back, they were comprehensively beaten at home by this same squad in the EFL Cup.

Rotherham vs Shrewsbury Prediction
The last month, these two were pitted against each other in the ELF Cup, and then despite being on the road, the Millers had delivered a classic performance. They had raced to a 0-3 lead within the half-time and later added one more to end the tie 0-4.
This time around, they have the additional home advantage, and in spite of their struggles, the upper hand goes to them. Moreover, the sufferings of Shrewsbury on the road further tips the scales in the direction of the hosts.
As things stand, rely on the home team to sweat it out on the pitch to script out a win, and taking into account their desperation, it seems a real possibility too.
