Our football match prediction:
Despite taking an early lead in Monday’s football game against Reading, Rotherham United eventually suffered a 2-1 loss to the Royals at Madejski Stadium. The rock-bottom team extended their losing run on the road to 14 games, but it has to be noted that they managed to hold Birmingham City to a 1-1 draw in their last home fixture in the Championship. Rotherham United, who have collected no more than 18 points so far this season, are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Ipswich Town and we are not tempted to put our money on the Millers. The Tractor Boys proved their worth in a 3-1 win over Newcastle United and they will be looking to extend their winning run in the league to three games when they face Rotherham United at AESSEAL New York Stadium. In their last meeting in South Yorkshire Ipswich hammered the Millers and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
