Sheffield Wednesday vs Rotherham Prediction & Match Preview

Sheffield Wednesday vs Rotherham
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 3 March 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Hillsborough.

With an active five-game losing run, the Millers are easily the absolute worst team in the whole competition. They are placed 22nd in the table at the moment, and need a surplus of at least five points to get over the cut-off.

Defensively they have been subpar all through this campaign, and they have also been struggling on the road the past several months.

Meanwhile, the Owls too are going through a dismal run. They are placed 23rd in the table as of now, and also have played an extra game.

Suffice it to say that they are under immense pressure, and have to post some quick points on the board if they hope to extend their stay in the Championship.

Do note that they have been performing quite well at home lately, and will definitely try to make the most of this upcoming match-up against the struggling Paul Warne’s men.

In addition, Darren Moore’s men also have a great h2h record against this opponent over the years.

For the reasons, expect Sheffield Wednesday to deliver a dominating performance this Wednesday at the Hillsborough.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Rotherham Prediction

Moore’s men lost 3-2 on the road the last match-day, against Luton. In the meantime, the Millers lost 0-1 at home the past game week, against Reading.

Going on, the Owls had won five of their previous six appearances at home, and they had lost just twice here since October of 2020. One of these defeats had come against the in-form Barnsley.

On the other hand, their opposite number are on a five-fixture losing streak, and had lost ten of their last thirteen road trips.

On top of that, Moore’s men also have a great h2h record against this foe over the years.

As such, expect Sheffield Wednesday to deliver a winning performance against Rotherham.

Furthermore, the two teams are placed bottom-most in the table, and are desperate for points. Both squads have also been conceding heavily all through this campaign as well.

For the reasons, expect goals in plenty at the Hillsborough.
