Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Buoyed by a 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic, MK Dons will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Rotherham United on Matchday 15. The Dons aim to build on a 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Mohamed Eisa should continue to lead the line for the hosts despite failing to find the net in the midweek triumph.
The Millers, on the other hand, head into the match following a goalless draw with Wycombe. Rotherham United aim to melt Plymouth’s advantage in the standings, but beating MK Dons on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards at Stadium MK, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. Defender Joe Mattock is unlikely to feature for the visitors after limping off through injury in the midweek game.

Richard Keogh is an English player, who has a deal with Derby County. The 188-cm-tall defender started his senior career in 2004 as he signed for Stoke City, but he was immediately sent on loan to Vikingur. After making nine appearances for the Icelandic club, he joined Bristol City in 2005.
Keogh made his Bristol City debut on 3 September, 2005 in a goalless draw with Colchester United. The Derby County defender then spent several seasons on loan at Wycombe, Huddersfield, Carlisle and Cheltenham before signing a permanent deal with Carlisle. Richard Keogh signed a three-year deal with Coventry City and he made 46 appearances for the club in the 2010/2011 Championship campaign.

The defender made 178 appearances for the Rams until the 2016/2017 Championship campaign and he netted one goal for the iPro Stadium outfit. Keogh made his Republic of Ireland debut on 6 February, 2013 in a friendly game against Poland.
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.
