Competition: League One
Market: Rotherham win & under 4.5 goals
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
Two sides who will find the mood in their camp at a polar opposite, Rotherham will welcome Gillingham to the New York Stadium on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, extending on their FA Cup adventure over the weekend with a hard-fought 1-0 win against National League side Stockport on home soil, Rotherham are enjoying a real purple patch. While the Reds might have lost their Championship status earlier in the year, it appears that the Millers are skyrocketing their way back to England’s second-tier. Opening up the midweek fixtures sat at the top of the League One table, Paul Warne’s side are also enjoying a remarkable 18-match unbeaten run across all formats, a run that stems all the way back to September 11th. Smelling a golden chance to lay down another marker at the New York Stadium on Tuesday night, Rotherham have also continued to shine with their displays at the back. The hosts have conceded just a single strike from any of their last four outings.
As for the visitors, while the mood in Rotherham’s camp will be at a red-hot high, the same cannot be said for a struggling Gillingham. Last seen on November 27th when getting hit with a last-gasp 1-0 loss against Portsmouth on home soil, Steve Evans’ men find themselves at the heart of a relegation scrap. Opening their trip to the New York Stadium sat two points adrift of safety, the Gills will know they face a stern test here. Losing each of their last four outings on the spin, it should also be noted that Tuesday’s guests have failed to win any of their previous nine matchups across all formats, a run that stems back to the middle of September. Showing a host of issues in the final third and now drawing a blank in each of their previous four defeats, we’re backing a fairly routine victory here.
Bet: Rotherham 4/6 to beat Gillingham and under 4.5 goals for Tuesday’s League One matchup @ 888sport
