Rotherham vs Coventry Match Preview
Coventry have bagged three wins and three draws in their last six outings and they now travel to AESSEAL New York Stadium in good spirits, sitting just four points behind the league pace-setters Ipswich and surely hoping to close the gap with an upset in Rotherham this weekend already.
Sky Blues have been very tough to beat but they have struggled to turn clashes their way on the road, which promises a tough contest but could still be worrying for Mark Robins – as his men earned just four draws in four league games and saw a League Cup exit in the hands of Watford (3-0) along the way.
Rotherham have seen recent struggles of their own, though, and will have to recuperate quickly after their 1-0 loss at Bristol Rovers, where a single goal from Jonson Clarke-Harris proved enough for all three points. They’ve earned draws against Sunderland (1-1) and Shrewsbury (0-0) beforehand and certainly promise a solid challenge now.
Millers bagged five points in three home outings since late August and they’ll now be very motivated to keep hold of their unbeaten streak, desperate to build on a mid-table spot. Paul Warne has struggled to find a cure for their defensive slip-ups, which will make it hard to fully capitalize once again.
With that in mind, we’re sticking our necks out for Coventry to snatch a point at AESSEAL New York Stadium, going for a Draw at 5/2 with William Hill and hoping for a tough deadlock to break on Saturday afternoon.
We thus expect few goals on the day and we’ll also go for Under 2.5 Goals FT at Evens with bet365, which could prove the best approach to the fixture now. The sides have both seen two or fewer goals in three of their last five outings, which feels like further evidence for such a bet.
