Our prediction for this Championship match:
Rotherham United will be aiming to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Derby County when they take on Stoke City on Tuesday evening. The Millers recorded their second away win of the season at the weekend, but it is well known that they produce much better showings at home than on the travels. Mattock, Ogbene, and Sadlier are all sidelined with injuries, while Ladapo is a major doubt.
The Potters, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers. Stoke City failed to win the previous six games in all competitions, and given Rotherham’s display in the triumph over Derby County, we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed. Chester is banned for the match, while McClean, Gunn, and Davies remain in the recovery room. Keep in mind, though, that Rotherham are eyeing their first win over Stoke since April 2005.
