Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at Whaddon Road pits together Cheltenham Town and Rotherham United, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Cheltenham Town head into the match following back-to-back losses to Wigan and Sunderland, and seeing that they have been struggling at the back of late, home win should not be considered. Michael Duff could opt to make changes to the starting XI, with all Barkers, May, and Norton pushing for a start.
The Millers, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-0 win over AFC Wimbledon. Rotherham United are determined to secure automatic promotion to the Championship, and they should take advantage of Cheltenham’s poor form. The attacking partnership of Grigg and Smith has been in a perfect working order of late, meaning that the opposition defenders should have the duo at bay.
Highlighted Player (Chris Hussey):
Born in Hammersmith, England, Christopher Hussey is an experienced defender who plays for Cheltenham Town in the League Two. After spending his youth career at the likes of Woking and AFC Wimbledon, Hussey continued playing for the Dons at senior level.
He played for a number of English clubs in the past, but, no doubt, the most notable one is Sheffield United. Chris Hussey made seven appearances for the Blades in the League One, but nowadays he is a League Two player. His main position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left midfielder as well.
It has to be noted that he was called up for the England C team as a standby. Christopher Hussey made his Cheltenham Town debut on August 21, 2018 in a 1-1 draw with Macclesfield Town. He scored his first goal with the Robins in a 4-2 loss to Mansfield Town.
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.
