Our prediction for this Championship match:
Luton Town and Rotherham United face each other at Kenilworth Road in a postponed Championship game. The Hatters have been in a fine form in the season finale, and a win over Rotherham will see them finish the season in the top half of the table. Keep in mind, though, that all Hylton, Lockyer, and O’Kane are sidelined with injuries. The Millers, on the other hand, are fighting hard to secure the Championship survival.
Rotherham United are three points behind the safe zone, and seeing that they want this win more than the mid-table hosts, away win should be considered. The good news for the visitors is that Matt Crooks returns to contention after serving a three-match ban. Both Johansson and Robertson are rated doubtful for the match, and the duo will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. In the first half of the season Luton defeated Rotherham 1-0, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge.

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.
