Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Charlton Athletic play host to Rotherham United at the Valley in a postponed League One fixture. The Red Robins have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both Sunderland and Doncaster in the previous two league fixtures, and, no doubt, they are high on spirits ahead of the visit of Rotherham. Both Ronnie Schwartz and Ryan Inniss are sidelined with injuries, while Sam Lavelle is a major doubt.
The Millers, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Sunderland and MK Dons. Rotherham United have been scoring goals for fun of late, and given Charlton’s display in the crushing (4-0) of Doncaster, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Jamie Lindsay is out of contention through injury, but he should be the only absentee in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Jake Forster-Caskey ):
Born in Southend-on-Sea, England on April 25, 1994 Jake Forster-Caskey is a midfielder who plays for Charlton Athletic in the League One. Forster-Caskey started his both youth and senior careers at Brighton & Hove Albion and it has to be noted that he scored five goals in 67 league appearances for the Seagulls first team.
After spending a couple of seasons on loan at the likes of Oxford United, Milton Keynes Dons and Rotherham United, the English footballer signed a two-and-a-half year deal with Charlton Athletic in the winter of 2017. Jake quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the capital club, scoring 5 goals in 43 appearances in the 2017/2018 League One campaign.
However, he was out of contention for most of the 2018/2019 season with a serious knee injury. His main position is central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both defensive and left midfielder 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.
