West Brom vs Rotherham Match Preview
West Brom had a decent Easter as they beat Hull 3-2 at their own ground on Friday and then were held to a goalless draw at Reading on Monday. They are in fourth place and the question is now do they rest players or try push to secure home advantage in the second-leg. Villa are two points behind them and these sides will meet with the key question who has home advantage.
At the Hawthorns, the Baggies have won each of their last four and lost just one of their last seven which came against Sheffield United. The last four home games for the Black Country outfit have gone over 2.5 goals with three going over 3.5 goals. Dwight Gayle is firing in front of his own fans with six from his last three.
Rotherham had an awful Easter losing both matches going down 4-3 at Swansea on Friday and 3-1 at home to Birmingham on Monday. They are third-bottom and are three points behind Millwall who have three to play. They have such an inferior goal-difference that even two victories means they can’t catch Reading in 20th.
Away from the New York Stadium, the Millers have managed just one victory all season and have lost three of their last five. Matty Crroks has bagged two goals from his last two appearances on his travels. Six of the last seven and each of their last four away have seen both teams net.
It is hard to imagine West Brom not winning here though the prices on offer reflect that and a better approach is to look to enhance the price. Rotherham have to win so will go for goals so backing a home win and over 2.5 goals is a sensible bet while the same bet with over 3.5 goals also appeals.
