Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After dropping two points in a 2-2 draw with AFC Wimbledon, Rotherham United will be looking to return to winning ways when they take on Accrington Stanley at Wham Stadium. The Millers have been scoring goals for fun in the League One of late, but beating the high-flying hosts is easier said than done. Freddie Ladapo, who came from the bench to find the net against the Dons, is likely to return to the starting XI for the visitors.
Given Rotherham’s attacking potential, we predict that the visiting team will score in Saturday’s football match. Seeing that John Coleman’s charges have been impressive in front of goal in 2020 as well, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. In their last meeting at Wham Stadium Rotherham United recorded a 2-1 win over Accrington Stanley.
Highlighted Player (Billy Kee):
Born in Loughborough, England on December 1, 1990, Billy Kee is a professional footballer who plays for Accrington Stanley as a striker. However, despite being born in England, the 175-cm-tall attacker represents Northern Ireland on the international stage. Billy Kee was called up to the senior Northern Ireland squad in September, 2009 for a World Cup qualifiers against Slovakia, but he has yet to make his debut for the national team.
The Accrington Stanley man scored 13 goals for the Accy in the 2018/2019 League One campaign, but that did not help the team secure promotion to the Championship as they finished the season in the 14th place in the standings.
Billy Kee started his youth career at Leicester City academy, while playing for the likes of Torquay United, Burton Albion, Scunthorpe United and Mansfield Town at senior level. His contract with Accrington Stanley should expire on June, 30, 2021.
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.
