Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Rotherham United: Match Preview And Prediction

On Saturday March 11th, Wolverhampton Wanderers play Rotherham United in the Sky Bet Championship. Currently, Rotherham finds itself at the bottom of the table while Wolverhampton Wanderers is hovering just above the relegation zone. The battle of bottom half teams, Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Rotherham is expected to be a tight game and one that is decided by a solitary goal.

To survive the drop, Wolverhampton Wanderers need to start winning their home games. As of 13th February, the team had won only four of its previous fifteen league games. The home form of Wolves can be gauged by the fact that the team has lost more home games than anyone else in the league this season. On the other hand, the away form of Wolves has been nothing short of brilliant. Had they performed at home as well as they did in their away games this season, Wolverhampton Wanderers would easily be in the top 6 right now. It is almost impossible to predict whether Wolves will turn their home form around but what we can predict is their championship game against Rotherham United.

 As he suffered a head injury in a recent game, Wolves midfielder Jack Price is unlikely to feature against Rotherham on March 11. Another Wolves player who’ll miss the game is Joe Mason. Mason is suffering from hernia and won’t be back for a few weeks at least. Other than that, Wolverhampton Wanderers have pretty much a full squad to choose from. On the other hand, Rotherham United is plagued by injuries. Right now, the visitors are in the business of counting casualties. The long injury list of Rotherham includes center back Kirk Bradfoot, Goalkeeper Lee Camp, winger John Taylor and center forward Danny Ward. Camp and Bradfoot are out for the season while Taylor and Ward will be missing for at least a month.

Wolves start the game a few places above the relegation zone, several points ahead of bottom placed Rotherham. However, the current positions of the teams mean little as football is a funny old game and anything can happen in it. Also, the last game between the two ended in a 2 all draw. Add to this the fact that Wolves had kept only one clean sheet in the thirteen league games they played between December 13, 2016 and February 14, 2017. Though, Rotherham United has fared no better. In fact, they have been worse. As of February 14, Rotherham had managed only 2 clean sheets. Moreover, in 32 games, they had scored only 30 times.

Considering Rotherham’s poor defense and Wolves counter attacking abilities, the latter is likely to score at least once in the game on March 11. My prediction is that the game will end 2-1 to Wolves. Moreover, a defender will score the winner. However, to find what really happens, tune into the game on Tuesday, February 14th.
