Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After recording three consecutive wins in the League One, Oxford United suffered a 1-0 loss to Doncaster Rovers in their first game of the year. The Yellows rolled over Hartlepool United 4-1 in the FA Cup at the weekend, and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they face Rotherham United on Matchday 27. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Tarique Fosu, who found the net in the 4-1 victory over Hartlepool United.
The Millers, on the other hand, look unstoppable at the moment, with the team recording a win in each of their last three league fixtures. Given Rotherham United’s attacking potential, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. You should bear in mind that 18 goals in total have been netted in the last four meetings between the two teams.

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.
