Our prediction for this Championship match:
Middlesbrough and Rotherham United go head to head at Riverside Stadium in what is expected to be a very exciting game. The Boro aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Blackburn Rovers, and it has to be noted that they are eyeing their eighth home win of the season. Middlesbrough are eager to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but they will have to do it without Browne, Fletcher, and Hall, who remain sidelined with injuries.
Dael Fry is rated doubtful after nearly losing his eye following Jarrad Branthwaite tackle. The Millers, on the other hand, played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Stoke City in their last league fixture. Rotherham are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, and seeing that Middlesbrough are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. The likes of Mattock, Ogbene, and Sadlier are all sidelined with injuries for the visitors.

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.
