Our prediction for this Championship match:
Saturday’s football match at Griffin Park pits together Brentford and Rotherham United. The Bees have big ambitions for the 2018/2019 Championship campaign and they are seen as favourites to win the opener against the newcomers. It is well known that over the years Brentford have turned their Griffin Park into a real fortress, but the visitors should not be underestimated. Rotherham United did well to return to the English second tier and, no doubt, the team’s main goal is to avoid relegation to League One. Considering that the Millers are not regarded as good travelers, we predict that they are going to return home empty-handed. You should bear in mind that the Bees are undefeated in previous five games in the Championship. Summer signing Mohamed Benrahma, who played for Chateauroux last term, is likely to make his Brentford debut against Rotherham United.
Highlighted Player (Josh McEachran):
Josh McEachran is a professional football player who was born on 1 March, 1993. The English footballer plays as central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both attacking and defensive midfielder as well. McEachran is a product of Chelsea youth school, but he made no more than 11 appearances for the senior squad at Stamford Bridge.
After spending several seasons on loan at Swansea city, Middlesbrough, Watford, Wigan and Vitesse, he signed a four-year deal with Brentford on 10 July 2015 for an undisclosed fee. Just 15 days later he suffered a fractured foot and, as a result, he was out of contention for three months. McEachran made his Brentford debut on 15 December in a 2-1 win over Reading and he went on to make 14 appearances for the Bees in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign.
Josh was born in Kirtlington, Oxfordshire, England, but his parents are Scottish. The Brentford midfielder was in a relationship with English actress Brooke Vincent.
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.
