Our prediction for this Championship match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Leeds United and Stoke City, Southampton will look to climb to the playoffs berth when they take on Rotherham United on Saturday afternoon. The Saints have found their form lately and they are surely capable of beating Rotherham, who struggle on the travels. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but all Jack Stephens, Juan Larios, and Ross Stewart remain on the sidelines with injuries.
The Millers, on the other hand, do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last five league matches and given their difficulties on the road, anything but a routine home win would be a big surprise. All Cameron Humphreys, Sean Morrison, Jamie Lindsay, and Shane Ferguson should miss out through injuries for the visiting team, while experienced midfielder Sam Clucas is pushing for a start.
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.
