Our football match prediction:
Seeing that Sheffield Wednesday face Newcastle United at St. James’ Park on Matchday 22, this has to go down as a must-win game for the Owls. Sheffield head into Saturday’s football match against Rotherham United following a 2-0 win over Barnsley and Carlos Carvalhal’s men once again proved their worth at home ground. Over the years the Owls have turned their Hillsborough Stadium into a real fortress and seeing that the Millers have been struggling on the travels this season, we predict that the hosts will record a routine win over the rock-bottom side. Rotherham United suffered a 2-1 loss to Fulham at Craven Cottage in their last league game and it has to be noted that they conceded 2+ goals in each of their 11 away games this season. The Millers are undisputedly the worst team in the Championship and they are unlikely to spoil Sheffield Wednesday’s party at Hillsborough.
Highligted Player (Steven Fletcher):
Steven Fletcher is a professional footballer who plays for Sheffield Wednesday. After ending his loan spell with Marseille, he joined the Owls on a free transfer in July 2016. Steven Fletcher was born in Shrewsbury, England on 26 March, 1987 and he began his youth career at Hibernian. He made his debut for the Scottish outfit on 10 April, 2004 in a 3-0 win over Kilmarnock. After spending three years at Burnley and Wolverhampton Fletcher signed a four-year deal with Sunderland for a fee of £12 million. The left-footed attacker scored 11 goals in 28 appearances for the Black Cats in the 2012/2013 Premier League campaign and he was struggling in front of goal in the 2013/2014 season, scoring no more than three league goals. Steven Fletcher was eligible to play for both England and Scotland, but he decided to represent his mother’s home country. Fletcher made his Scotland debut in March 2008, in a friendly against Croatia. He did well to provide an assist for Kenny Miller, who scored the equaliser for the Scotts (1-1).
Highlighted Team (Rotherham United):
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.
