Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Portsmouth will be looking to build on back-to-back wins over Southend United and Rochdale when they take on Rotherham United in a postponed fixture. The Pompey made a very slow start to the season, but they have been in a fine form of late. Portsmouth are determined to return to the Championship, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to turn the dream into reality.
The Millers, on the other hand, came from two goals behind to beat Milton Keynes Dons on the road in their last league fixture. Rotherham United are on a three-game winning run in the League One, but beating Portsmouth on the road is easier said than done. Anyhow, given the attacking potential of the two teams, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score.
Highlighted Player (Ellis Harrison):
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.
