      Tip Reasoning

      Can West Brom keep up their promotion hopes when they meet Rotherham on Saturday? The Baggies are hoping for a quick return to the Premier League, and result results have boosted their hopes of making the top two. They head to promoted opposition this weekend as they try to maintain a promising run, but can they come away from the New York Stadium with all three points?

      Rotherham are sitting just three points clear of the drop zone following a 1-1 draw at the weekend. They couldn’t find a way to take maximum points against a relegation-threatened Reading side, which has dented the Millers’ hopes of staying up. Early in the campaign they were relying on home wins to keep them clear of danger, now they’re only claiming draws – with the teams behind slowly gaining on them.

      The visitors are five points off Norwich City, following their impressive win at Sheffield United last time out. The Baggies are showing their attacking edge with some good displays, and it was only last month that they demolished the new league leaders Leeds, claiming a 4-1 home win early in November. They’re a top side on their day, so if they can put together a consistent run then they’ll make the top six at least.

      The visitors are justified favourites ahead of this trip, despite Rotherham boasting a strong home record this season. The hosts could be blown away by a Baggies side who are the league’s top scorers, with the visitors averaging 2.09 goals per game. They’ve made good on that in recent weeks, winning 2-1 in three straight away trips. The hosts have won one of their last 15 games, recently losing to high-flying Norwich. With the visitors in great form of late, we see them coming away from the New York Stadium with maximum points this weekend.

      After four wins in their last six, including that three game-winning run on the road, the Baggies should win here. However, they’ve conceded in their last 13 matches. The visitors at yet to keep an away clean sheet this season, while they meet a Rotherham side who have seen both teams score in their last eight Championship games. With that run in mind, we’re backing an away win and both teams to score in this fixture, along with another 2-1 victory for Darren Moore’s side.
