Rotherham vs Swansea City Predictions

  • Swansea won four of their final seven Championship away games last term.
  • Rotherham lost three of their last six home matches in League One prior to promotion.
  • Joel Piroe scored 24 goals last season and has been on target in pre-season.

Swans strikers should seal road win against Rotherham

Swansea’s strikers may look like they don’t see each other in goalscoring positions, but Russell Martin’s side have a firepower advantage that can carry them to victory against Rotherham on Saturday. The Swans seem to have fully adapted to Martin’s methods now and could be a surprise package in the Championship this season.

Their away form from late February onwards was equivalent to that of a promotion-chasing side and they should do some damage against the newly-promoted Millers. Paul Warne is realistic about his side’s chances of avoiding the drop, but they were dealt a huge blow when striker Tom Eaves was ruled out for several weeks with a calf problem.

The ex-Hull City man was a handful for some good defenders in this league last term and without him, and the man he replaced Michael Smith, Rotherham could lack a focal point in attack.

Piroe the pick of the anytime options

Swansea won’t at all with Dutch destroyer Joel Piroe leading the line and dropping into a number ten position to create space for the lively Michael Obafemi. Piroe plundered 24 goals in all competitions last season and has been on target in pre-season too, so his 8/5 anytime quote looks decent value here up against a defence that hasn’t kept a clean sheet in their last four warm-up games.

The Millers are unlikely to see much more than 40% of the ball on Saturday and they will probably have to get used to that in a league where more teams are shunning a territorial approach in favour of controlled possession through the thirds.

Swansea have a few things to iron out, but with few fitness issues right now and a solid grasp of Martin’s style, the visitors can win on the road again and should be backed to come away with a 2-0 victory.
