Our prediction for this Championship match:
Rotherham United and Millwall, the two teams who are almost level on points in the Championship standings, take on each other at Aesseal New York Stadium on Wednesday evening. The Millers aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Wigan Athletic, but the midweek clash will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side. Ireland international Peter Kioso remains on the sidelines with injury, while Lee Peltier is a major doubt.
Since the club chiefs have yet to appoint a new manager, home win should not be considered. The Lions, on the other hand, defeated Rotherham in their last meeting at Aesseal New York Stadium, and they surely want the history to be repeated. Millwall, though, have been struggling on the travels this term, which is probably the main reason why we are going to put our money on draw. All Shaun Hutchinson, Ryan Leonard, and Mason Bennett are sidelined with injuries for the capital club.
Highlighted Player (Josh Vickers):
A product of Arsenal's youth academy, Josh Vickers, is an English footballer who plays for League One Club Lincoln City. The 6ft 2-inch goalkeeper's first appearance came for Isthmian League outfit Canvey Island having joined them on loan in August 2013. He went on to play over 30 games for the club before returning to Arsenal to sign his first professional contract.
His time at the Gunners was shortlived, however, and involved another loan to Conference South club Concord Rangers before making a permanent switch to Premier League side Swansea City in August 2015 on a two-year contract. In his time at Swansea, Vickers made zero appearances for the first team but did feature in the club's under-18 and under-23 team.
Vickers spent his 2016/2017 season on loan to Barnet, where he made his League One debut against Cambridge United on the 6th of August, 2016. Born on the 1st of December, 1995, the 23-year-old has featured 47 times for his current club Lincoln, on a contract that expires on the 30th of June, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Millwall):
Based in Bermonsdey, South East London, Millwall are a football club whose supporters have often been associated with hooliganism. West Ham United are considered the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in clashes between the two teams.
The Lions share rivalry with Charlton as well and the two teams first met back in 1921. The Den is Milwall’s home ground at the capacity of the stadium, which was opened in 1993, is 20.146.
The capital club did well to make it to the 2003/2004 FA Cup final, but Premier League giants Manchester United proved to be a big catch for the Lions. The Red Devils won the game 3-0, but despite suffering the heavy loss in the title game, Milwall booked their place in the UEFA Cup. However, Ferencvaros of Hungary proved to be a big catch for the English outfit in the two-legged tie.
Australia international Tim Cahill is considered one of the most notable footballers who whore Millwall shirt (1998-2004).
