Rotherham vs Plymouth

Rotherham and Plymouth face each other at Aesseal New York Stadium in the Championship round 41 curtain-raiser. The Millers did well to beat Millwall 2-1 on Monday, but despite the triumph. They are still stuck in the relegation zone with only 23 points on their account. Experienced forward Charlie Wyke should be recalled to the starting. XI after scoring the winner as a substitute against the Lions, while all Tiehi. Hugill, Kioso, Morrison, Blackett, Hall, and Green remain in the recovery room.

The Pilgrims, on the other hand, are on a three-game losing run in the Championship, but it seems as if their performances are much better than the results. As Plymouth will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the English second tier. Away win should be considered. Interim manager Neil Dewsnip has a luxury to field the best possible side.

Rotherham vs Plymouth Prediction

The overall edge in head-to-head will incline us to the back of the visiting side to win here. The main reason for that also includes the current form of Rotherham at home. Rotherham won just once in the past 8 league home matches and lost most of them. Knowing that Plymouth was unbeaten in five of the past eight league away matches, we have enough of reasons to back the away side here.

Moving on, the unimpressive defensive line of Plymouth has allowed goals in the past three league away matches. In that case, we like to suggest the over 2.5 goals option as the second pick here. Also, Rotherham scored 4 goals in the past four clashes against Plymouth at this venue. Thus, we like to suggest Plymouth 2-1 as the final pick here.
