Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wigan Athletic will look to bounce back from a day-one loss to Sunderland when they face Rotherham United at their DW Stadium on Saturday. The Latics experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the season opener, and it is no wonder the odds for away win have been dropping. Former Sunderland attacker Charlie Wyke should continue to lead the line for Wigan despite failing to impress in the defeat to his former club.
The Millers, on the other hand, faced no difficulties in a 2-0 win over Plymouth. Rotherham are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but seeing that they often struggle on the travels, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. The opposition defenders should have Freddie Ladapo at bay as the 28-year-old attacker opened his goal-scoring account at the weekend.
Highlighted Player (Nathan Cameron):
Born in Birmingham, England, on November 21, 1991, Nathan Cameron is a professional footballer who plays for Macclesfield Town as a defender. Cameron is a product of the Coventry City football school, and he continued wearing the sky blue shirt at the senior level.
He made 48 appearances in the league for Coventry City, but he played for the likes of Nuneaton Town (loan), Northampton Town (loan), and Bury as well before joining Macclesfield Town. Nathan Cameron has one cap for the England U20 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team.
The 188-cm-tall defender made his Macclesfield Town debut in the League two in a 2-0 loss to Milton Keynes Dons on November 17, 2018. His primary position is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a right-back as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 25 shirt at Macclesfield 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.
