Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Tuesday’s football game at Pirelli Stadium pits together Burton Albion and Rotherham United, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Millers did well to beat Ipswich Town thanks to Michael Smith’s goal, with the team climbing to automatic promotion berth. Rotherham are high on confidence ahead of the trip to Staffordshire, but they will have to prove their worth on the field.
Mikel Miller suffered a season-ending injury against the Tractor Boys, while William Grigg remains in the recovery room. The Brewers, on the other hand, have drawn each of their last three league fixtures. Burton, though, have been struggling in front of goal of late, and given their five-match goalless run, anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise. Adlene Guedioura is injured for the hosts, who have little to play for in the remainder of the season.
Highlighted Player (Lucas Akins):
After making his first football steps in Huddersfield Town youth academy, Lucas Akins made his first-team debut against Northampton Town as he came as a substitute to replace Luke Beckett. However, he made no more than five appearances for Huddersfield Town as he was sent on loan to Nortwich Victoria.
After spending two seasons at Hamilton Academical, the winger, who was born on 25 February 1989, joined Tranmere Rovers in July, 2010. Lucas Atkins scored 7 goals in 77 appearances for the club and in 2012 he signed a contract with Stevenage. The English footballer played 77 league games for the Boro and he scored 13 goals for the club.
During the 2013/2014 campaign he was on Burton Albion’s radar and at the end of the season he joined the Pirelli Stadium outfit. Lucas Atkins enjoys playing football, but dancing is considered his passion as well. His main position is right wing, but he plays as both centre forward and left winger as well.
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.
