Our football match prediction:
Rotherham United have little to play for in Tuesday’s football match against Sheffield Wednesday. The rock-bottom team will drop to the League One at the end of the season, but their pride will be at stake in upcoming league fixtures. The Millers are on an eight-game losing run in the English second tier ahead of the visit of Sheffield Wednesday and we do not believe that there is a value in betting on the hosts. The Owls, on the other hand, aim to start a new winning run in the Championship and a victory over Rotherham United could see them climb to the Europa League berth. The Hillsborough Stadium outfit are not regarded as good travelers, but given Rotherham’s poor form, we predict that the visitors will pick up all three points from the match. It has to be noted that the Owls emerged triumphant in the reverse fixture.
Highlighted Player (Lee Frecklington):
Lee Frecklington is an English footballer who started his youth career at Lincoln City. He was making progress day by day in Lincoln’s youth and the Lincoln owners decided to count on him for the 2003/2004 season. The midfielder scored 21 goals in 124 appearances for the club and in 2013 he signed a deal with Rotherham United following a successful loan spell with the New York Stadium outfit. Lee Frecklington has established himself as a first-team regular at Rotherham United and he scored five goals in 27 appearances for the club in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign. Despite being born in Lincoln, England, Frecklington played for Republic of Ireland B in a friendly game against Scotland in 2006. He is eligible to play for the Boys in Green as his maternal grandparents were born in Northern Ireland. The Rotherham United midfielder won the League One play-offs with the Millers in the 2013/2014 campaign. He used to play for the likes of Stamford, Lincoln United and Peterborough United in the past as well.
Highlighted Team (Sheffield Wednesday):
Sheffield Wednesday are one of the two famous clubs from the city of Sheffield (South Yorkshire). The Owls compete in the English second tier (Championship) and they play their home matches at Hillsborough. The venue was the scene of the Hillsborough disaster which occurred in 1989 when 96 Liverpool supporters were crushed to death in the FA Cup semi-final. It has to be noted that the World Cup (1966) and the Euro (1996) matches were played at Hillsborough. Sheffield Wednesday have won four First Division trophies (1902/2903, 1903/1904, 1928/1929, 1929/2930) and they finished the 1960/1961 campaign in second place in the standings. The Owls have clinched three FA Cup trophies (1896, 1907, 1935), with the team winning the League Cup in 1991. Sheffield Wednesday defeated English giants Manchester United (1-0) in the title game. Sheffield United are regarded as the Owls’ main rivals and the two teams face each other in the Steel City derby.
