Our prediction for this Championship match:
Cardiff City and Rotherham United face each other at Cardiff City Stadium in what is expected to be an interesting Championship game. The Bluebirds are on a three-game losing run ahead of Saturday’s clash, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against the Millers. Since important attacker Callum Robinson misses the match through suspension, home win should not be considered. All Ebou Adams, Mahlon Romeo, Rubin Colwill, and Jamilu Collins remain on the sidelines with injuries.
The visitors, on the other hand, head into the match following a 2-2 draw with Coventry City. Considering that Rotherham United are eager to return to winning ways as well, punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on both teams to score. Defender Peter Kioso and midfielder Chiedozie Ogbene are sidelined with injuries for the away team.
Highlighted Player (Callum Robinson):
Born in Northampton, Callum Robinson started his career at Aston Villa. Having gone through the youth ranks with the Villans, Robinson was given his first-team debut in 2013. As a product of the Aston Villa academy, Robinson unfortunately never got a chance to prove his worth at the club and ended up playing no less than 4 league appearances during his three-year stay at Villa Park.
Various loan spells – at Preston North End on two occasions and Bristol City – brought mixed fortunes for the striker up until 2016 when he sealed a permanent move with the Lillywhites. Robinson represented England at U16, U17, U19 and U20 levels but raised plenty of eyebrows when he declared for the Republic of Ireland in March 2018 through his late grandmother who was from Monaghan.
The striker made his senior team breakthrough in Republic of Ireland’s 2-2 draw with Celtic in Scott Brown’s testimonial match and will be hoping to prove doubters wrong and prove his motive is bigger than career opportunism.
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.
