Our prediction for this Championship match:
Stoke City play host to Rotherham United at their Bet365 Stadium on day 16 of the new Championship campaign. The Potters are eyeing their third consecutive league win, and they are surely capable of matching the Millers on home soil. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but all Jacob Brown, Gavin Kilkenny, and Harry Souttar remain in the treatment room.
The Millers, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team sharing the spoils with Millwall, losing to Blackburn, while beating Huddersfield in their last league match. Rotherham, though, have been struggling on the travels this season, which is probably the main reason why we are going to put our money on the in-form Potters. Defender Peter Kioso should be the only absentee in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Aden Flint):
Born in Pinxton, England on July 11, 1989, Aden Fint began his youth career at his hometown club Pinxton. In 2008 he moved to Alfreton Town and he scored 45 goals in more than 100 appearances for the club.
In 2011 he signed a contract with Swindon Town and, no doubt, that was a step up in his career. The 197-cm-tall defender played 64 games in the league for the Robins and in 2013 he signed for Bristol City for a fee of £300,000. Aden Flint made his debut on August 3, 2013 in a 2-2 draw with Bradford City.
The centre-back scored his first goal for Bristol city on September 21 in a 3-2 loss to his former club Swindon Town. You should know that Flint was named Player of the Year for the 2015/2016 season. The Bristol City footballer has a contract with the club which expires on June 30.
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.
