Our prediction for this Championship match:
High-flying Burnley will look to extend their winning run to four games when they welcome Rotherham United to their Turf Moor on Matchday 19. The Clarets are eager to retain top position in the standings, and the bookies see them as hot favourites to win Wednesday’s clash. Midfielder Jack Cork is back from suspension, while all Churlinov, Twine, and Westwood continue to miss out with injuries.
The Millers, on the other hand, failed to win the previous three league fixtures, and given their difficulties at the back, anything but an easy home win would be a sensation. All Bola, Kioso, and Ogbene are out of contention through injuries for the visiting side. In their last meeting at the venue Burnley defeated Rotherham 2-0, and you should bear in mind that the Clarets are eyeing their fourth consecutive triumph over the Millers.
Highlighted Player (Bailey Peacock-Farrell):
Despite being born in Darlington, England on October 29, 1996, Bailey Peacock-Farrell represents Northern Ireland at senior level. The Northern Ireland international started his youth career at Middlesbrough, but in 2013 he joined Leeds United. The talented goalkeeper continued playing for Leeds United senior team and, no doubt, there is a bright future ahead of him.
Bailey Peacock-Farrell made his first-team debut for the Whites on April 5, 2016 in a home game against Queens Park Rangers. The two played out a 1-1 draw at Elland Road and it has to be noted that the goalkeeper conceded a penalty kick in the 87th minute of the match. The 192-cm tall shot-stopper has a contract with Leeds United which should expire on June, 2020.
As previously mentioned, the Leeds United goalkeeper represents Northern Ireland on the international stage, qualifying for the national team thanks to his grandfather Jim Farreell, who was born in Enniskillen.
Highlighted Team (Rotherham):
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.
