Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Blackpool take on Rotherham United at Bloomfield Road in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program in the League One. Blackpool aim to retain their spot in top six and they are eyeing their fourth home win of the season. The Seasiders did well to beat Lincoln City in their last home game in the English third tier and given Rotherham’s poor away record, home win should be considered.
The Millers did well to beat Coventry City 4-0 in their last home game, but you should bear in mind that they are on a three-game winless run on the road. Rotherham do not suit Blackpool as the Seasiders failed to beat the Millers in previous six meetings in all competitions, but seeing that Simon Grayson’s men made a fine start to the season, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.

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.
