Rotherham vs Cardiff by Shibby

Championship action which I will be attending today again. The game will see Rotherham United host Welsh side Cardiff City. The game will be played at New York Stadium and will kick off at 15:00 UK time.

The hosts, Rotherham head into the game in terrible form, as do the visitors. Rotherham currently lie in 21st in the table, on just 6 points from their first 8 games, not a great start to the season, however, considering their squad this isn't too bad. I've seen all games this season and the football that is being played at Rotherham is good, they start games really well and often take the lead against teams. This may be their downfall as they then always sit back and invite teams to attack them, which they always do and always score to level the game. The confidence then swings to the away sides and they often go on to win the game.

Rotherham have been a very free scoring place to go for all teams, Rotherham score goals on a regular basis and so do their opponents. Rotherham do have a couple of key players back in contention today and I know this will solidify things, however, I still expect Cardiff to head into this game knowing that this is a winnable game for them. Both teams know that a win would go along way.

Frecklington and Blackstock may be in the starting line up today so we will have to see what happens, other than them two I expect the same side to start. The fans know this is a big game and a game that Rotherham can get something from if they perform. Therefore, I expect a loud fan base at today's game.

The visitors are one of the few teams that are doing worse than Rotherham. They currently lie bottom of the table on just 5 points from 8 games, however, a win at this stage could see them jump to 19th. So with this in mind I expect Cardiff to turn up today and to make things difficult for Rotherham.

Cardiff head into the game on the back of 4 straight defeats, these have come against Reading, Norwich, PNE and Leeds. I watched them against Leeds and they looked low on confidence.

I'll be backing my usual BTTS for today's game at a price of 1.78 with Unibet. Good luck all.

Bet: Both teams to score @1.78 with Unibet
Result: 1-2 (won)
