Our prediction for this Championship match:
Rock-bottom Blackburn Rovers are desperate to record their first win of the season. The Riversiders were on the verge of sharing the spoils with Leeds United at Elland Road at the weekend, but the Whites eventually scored a late winner. Blackburn Rovers have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at Rotherham United in Saturday’s football match at Ewood Park and we believe that the time has come for the famous English club to start a winning run in the Championship. The Millers have been struggling at the back of late and seeing that they conceded eight goals in last three league games, the visitors are unlikely to spoils Blackburn’s party at Ewood Park. In their last meeting in Blackburn the Riversiders emerged triumphant (1-0) and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. Back then Rotherham United midfielder Luke Hyam scored and own goal and helped Blackburn pick up all three points from the match.

Highlighted Team (Rotherham United):
Rotherham United are an English club that compete in the Championship. Rotherham United are located in Rotherham, South Yorkshire and they play their home games at New York Stadium and the capacity of the venue is 12,021.
The club was founded in 1925 as a merger between Rotherham County and Rotherham Town. The colour of Rotherham’s home kit was originally yellow and black, but nowadays they were red and white jerseys. The Millers made it to the FA Cup fifth round on two occasions (1952/1953, 1967/1968) and they have yet to play in the Premier League.
Rotherham United have won the Football League One twice (1950/1951, 1980/1981), but the club’s biggest success is participation in the 1960/1961 League Cup final. Sheffield United are regarded as Rotherham United’s fiercest rivals, but the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Doncaster could be considered Rotherham’s big rivals as well.
