Tip Reasoning

  • Rotherham’s 5-1 thrashing of Gillingham on Tuesday extended their unbeaten run to 19 matches in all competitions.
  • Burton have only won two of their 10 away League One matches, scoring just five goals.
  • However, only nine of League One’s 24 clubs have conceded fewer goals than Burton, and 18 of the Brewers’ 21 League One games have featured under 3.5 goals.

Rotherham looking for 20 unbeaten

Paul Warne’s Rotherham United can make more history on Saturday afternoon. The League One leaders have already set a new club record for consecutive matches unbeaten in all competitions, and can extend their incredible sequence to 20 by avoiding defeat at the New York Stadium.

The Millers were forced to come from behind in midweek before dispatching former boss Steve Evans’s Gillingham 5-1, and have now won their last three home league matches, scoring 13 goals in the process.

While the hosts will be supremely confident of extending their fantastic run of form, 10th-placed Burton Albion will be no pushovers. While the Brewers have struggled on the road, winning two of 10 and scoring just five goals on their travels, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s team have conceded fewer goals than 15 other third tier clubs. Moreover, only two of the Brewers’ 21 league matches have featured anything more than three goals.

Millers to continue run, but not with a thrashing

Rotherham have won seven of their 11 league matches at the New York Stadium this season, and conceded just 14 goals in their 20 League One games to date. They should be a banker on Saturday afternoon, but the visitors tend to remain competitive, and should put up a better showing than hapless Gillingham did.

Rotherham to win with under 3.5 match goals thus seems a great value punt for this match, with Burton having conceded more than twice on just two occasions this campaign. A 2-0 Rotherham victory is a solid correct score prediction, for the same reasons.
