Rotherham vs Birmingham Match Preview
Rotherham twice took the lead at Swansea but came out the wrong end of a seven-goal thriller going down 4-3 at the Liberty. The result means they remain in 22nd and are three behind Millwall with a much inferior goal-difference. After this they face tricky games away at West Brom and at home to Middlesbrough so this is a must win.
At the New York Stadium, the Millers have been decent this season winning two of their last four and losing two of their last six. Each of the last nine and 14 of the last 15 at their own place have seen both teams net. The last five at this ground and nine of the last ten have gone over 2.5 goals with three of the last going over 3.5.
Birmingham made it three successive draws and stretched their unbeaten run to four with a 2-2 home draw against Derby on Friday. They now sit in 18th and though not mathematically safe the seven points gap between them and their opponents here is unlikely to be made up.
Away from St Andrew’s, the Blues are without a victory in their last four with three of these finishing all-square. Each of their last two and six of their last eight on the road have seen both teams find the back of the net. Lukas Jutkiewicz has found the back of the net in each of his last two appearances on his travels.
The visitors are the favourites to win the game and we could not be rushing to back them giving how much this game means to Rotherham while the Blues look safe. This is a must-win game for the home side so backing goals is the way to go. Over 2.5 goals is a sensible play while over 3.5 goals looks value as the Blues in Che Adams have the ability to exploit the gaps when the home team attack,
