Our prediction for this Championship match:
Wigan Athletic and Rotherham United go head to head at the DW Stadium on the last day of the season. The Latics failed to secure the Championship survival, but their displays in the season finale are giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of upcoming challenges. Following back-to-back wins over Stoke and Millwall, the rock-bottom side shared the spoils with Reading in their last league match. Even though all Josh Magennis, Ben Amos, Martin Kelly, and Jason Kerr miss out with injuries, we predict that the hosts are going to grab something from the clash.
The Millers, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Middlesbrough. Rotherham United, though, are not regarded as good travellers, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on the home side. The likes of Shane Ferguson, Chiedozie Ogbene, Bailey Wright, Grant Hall, and Sean Morrison remain in the recovery room.
Highlighted Player (Jason Kerr):
Jason Kerr is a professional footballer who plays for St Johnstone as a defender. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on February 6, 1997, Jason Kerr is a product of the St Johnstone football academy. He started his senior career in 2014, and after ending his loan spells with East Fife and Queen of the South, he returned to the McDiarmid Park outfit in 2018.
He made his debut with the Saints in the Scottish Cup game against Albion Rovers on January 29, 2019. Jason Kerr has six caps with the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the senior team.
He scored his first goal for St Johnstone in a 4-1 defeat to Rangers on February 27, 2018. His primary position on the field is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing good displays as a central midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 15 shirt at St Johnstone.
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.
