Our prediction for this Championship match:
Adams Park will host Saturday’s football match between Wycombe Wanderers and Rotherham United, who face each other at the start of the new Championship campaign. Wycombe were beaten by Brentford on penalties in their Carabao Cup opener, but the team’s display was anything but poor. The Blues are eager to impress on their return to the Championship, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Rotherham.
The Millers return to the English second tier as well, with the likes of Mickel Miller, Kieran Sadlier, Angus MacDonald, Viktor Johansson, and Wes Harding joining the club in the summer. Rotherham’s main goal is to secure the Championship survival, but they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the season opener. The Millers are more of a team than the Blues, and the visitors should take advantage of the fact that the game will be played behind closed doors.
Highlighted Player (Ryan Allsop):
Born in Birmingham, England on June 17, 1992, Ryan Allsop is a professional footballer who started his youth career at West Bromwich Albion. Speaking of his senior career, the 191-cm tall goalkeeper played for the likes of Hottur, Leyton Orient, Bournemouth, Coventry City, Portsmouth, Blackpool and Lincoln City before signing a permanent deal with Wycombe Wanderers.
The goalkeeper, who spent the 2015/2016 season on loan at Wycombe, returned to the club after he was released by the Cherries. Ryan Allsop has 5 caps with the England U17 team, but he has yet to make his debut with the senior team.
His preferred foot is right and he has a contract with Wycombe which should expire on June 30, 2021. The English shot-stopper did well to keep 10 clean sheets in 38 appearances for the Wanderers in the 2018/2019 League One season.
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.
