Our prediction for this Championship match:
Aesseal New York Stadium will host Saturday’s Championship game between Rotherham United and Norwich City, the two teams with entirely different ambitions for the 2023/2024 season. The Millers are eager to secure the survival, while the Canaries are eyeing a quick return to the Premier League. Rotherham, though, made a slow start to the season, which is probably the main reason why home win should not be considered. All Grant Hall, Jamie Lindsay, Shane Ferguson, and Lee Peltier miss out with injuries.
Norwich City, on the other hand, are brimming with confidence following back-to-back wins over Millwall (3-1) and Huddersfield (4-0). The promotion hopefuls have been impressive in front of goal of late and we predict that they will give fans yet another reason to celebrate this weekend. David Wagner is going to field the best possible starting XI after resting several first-team regulars in the EFL Cup win over Bristol City.
Highlighted Player (Grant Hanley):
Grant Hanley is Scottish footballer who plays for Norwich City as defender. Hanley was born in Dumfries, Scotland, on November 20, 1991 and he started his youth career at Queen of the South. After ending his spells with Crewe Alexandra and Rangers, the Scottish player joined English club Blackburn Rovers, where he started his senior career.
After scoring eight goals in 183 appearances for the Riversiders in league matches, he moved to fellow English club Newcastle United in July, 2016 for an undisclosed fee. Grant Hanley, though, made no more than 10 appearances for Newcastle United in the Championship before joining Norwich City. The 191-cm-tall defender made his full international debut for Scotland against Wales on in May, 2011.
He scored his first goal for the Scotland national football team in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Wales. His contract with Norwich City should expire on June 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (Rotherham):
Rotherham United are an English club that compete in the Championship. Rotherham United are located in Rotherham, South Yorkshire and they play their home games at New York Stadium and the capacity of the venue is 12,021.
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. The Millers made it to the FA Cup fifth round on two occasions (1952/1953, 1967/1968) and they have yet to play in the Premier League.
Rotherham United have won the Football League One twice (1950/1951, 1980/1981), but the club’s biggest success is participation in the 1960/1961 League Cup final. Sheffield United are regarded as Rotherham United’s fiercest rivals, but the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Doncaster could be considered Rotherham’s big rivals as well.
