Sunderland vs Rotherham Match Preview
Sunderland bounced back to the winning ways with a 1-3 win at Accrington Stanley, where they conceded a very early goal but completed the comeback by the end of the first half with goals from Gooch, McGeady, and McNulty. They now host Rotherham hoping to build on the performance and keep up with top of the league table.
Black Cats saw a comfortable 3-0 loss at Peterborough in late August end their streak of five consecutive wins but they’ve obviously used the break to a good cause. They now have a great confidence booster behind them and we feel Jack Ross’ men come into the match at Stadium of Light in great shape.
Rotherham have ended a winless streak of their own as they outclassed struggling Bolton (6-1), with ten points to their name after six outings. They’ve struggled to show off as such an outfit against Sheffield Wednesday (0-1), Tranmere (1-1), and Doncaster (2-1) beforehand, though, and now have a lot to prove in Sunderland.
Millers have been scoring goals and we feel they’ll be able to find the net as well. However, their struggles to turn clashes their way have been obvious and we expect such woes to prove costly once again – as Sunderland capitalize on their woes at the back and keep building on a winning tally once again.
We will thus go for a Home win at 6/5 with bet365, which seems great value despite Rotherham’s great performance against Bolton. We’ve seen them great in the final third and we see them outgunning the rivals to important points here.
We should thus be in for goals on both ends as we now back a high-scoring occasion and Over 2.5 Goals FT at 4/5 with William Hill, which looks like a generous banker bet as we expect excitement and both sides in a great mood going forward.
