Coventry City vs Rotherham United: prediction for the EFL Championship Week 36

The Millers will try to play spoiler to the Sky Blues plans of entering the playoff race.

The last place Rotherham United will travel 90 miles south to face the local Coventry City, still aiming for the playoffs spot. Match will begin on Tuesday, March 5, at 8:45pm CET.

Coventry City

After spending nearly a decade in the Premier League, Coventry City have been unable to compete for the return to the top flight. Falling to League Two to begin the 2017-2018 season looked hopeless, but the team managed to earn two promotions in three years to be back in the EFL Championship.

As last year the Sky Blues managed to enter the playoffs for the first time, this season they are trying to do the same, sitting five points away from the sixth spot. Two losses in a row to the direct competitors from Preston North End and West Bromwich Albion hurt, but 11 games is still enough time to fix the place in the standings.

Rotherham United

Stopping the yearly cycle of going from EFL Championship to League One and then back, Rotherham United is all but certain to fall down to the third division of English football this season.

The Millers have only 19 points, the second to last offense in the league and the worst defense, plus Rotherham lost seven in a row. However, if there is anything to feel good about, it is that they have already beaten their upcoming opponent this season.

Prediction ⚽️

Rotherham won their clash with Coventry City «2-0» in October, but now will travel 90 miles south while not having any real goals left for the season.

The Sky Blues, however, are still competing for the place in the top flight, as we will side with the hosts and bet on them to cover a (-1) spread with 1.51 odds 🔥.
