Rotherham vs Nottingham Forest Match Preview
Rotherham will be looking to bounce back from a comprehensive defeat at the weekend as they went down 6-1 to Derby. It leaves them in the bottom three though they are just one behind Millwall in 21st. All but one of their remaining fixtures comes against a team in the top 16 and that one is a key meeting with Birmingham.
At the New York Stadium, the Millers have been decent this season picking up 26 of their 36 points here. They have though won just one of their last six and two of the previous 11 in the Championship. Each of the last seven and 12 of the last 13 at their own place have seen both teams net.
A 2-1 win at home to Swansea last weekend kept the play-off dream alive for Nottingham Forest although it was a score that was a little harsh on their opponents. Forest sit ninth going into the weekend three points behind Villa in sixth. They have seven games remaining only three of which are against fellow top-half sides.
Away from the City Ground, the Tricky Trees are draw specialists with only Stoke (12) drawing more than the 11 they have seen end all-square. It is ten without a victory on the road with six of these ending in a draw. The East Midlands outfit have netted just once in their last three away matches.
Nottingham Forest are favourites to win this game and while I can see this because of the respective league positions of both sides I could not bring myself to back them as they have just three road wins all season.
Seven of the last eight at the New York Stadium have gone over 2.5 goals and this looks a sensible play here especially as both sides need the victory. If you extend it out seven of the last 13 here have gone over 3.5 goals so that also looks worth a small interest.
