Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Watford vs Rotherham

Watford

Watford’s 17-year-old sensation Tobi Adeyemo struck his first senior goal in a 2-0 win over Blackpool last Saturday as the Hornets continue to tussle with a host of sides for a top-six spot. Consistent results have been a concern with Slaven Bilić’s side, but did win their last two games to nil.

Watford need to improve their recent indifferent form at Vicarage Road (W2, D1, L2) if they are to maintain a stronghold on a playoff spot. A better effort in front of the goal could help, as the goal-shy Hornets have failed to score in four of their last seven fixtures.

Rotherham

Though Rotherham perhaps don’t look like the toughest opponent on paper with the visitors winless in nine H2Hs (W6, D3) since February 2003, the Millers are likely to travel in a buoyant mood after thrashing another playoff hopeful Blackburn Rovers 4-0 last Saturday. 

The Millers haven’t scored in their last four away meetings with Watford. Moreover, with a scoring average of 0.57 goals per game, manager Matt Taylor’s main task obviously will be to reinforce his attack if he wants to keep his team in the Championship.

Watford vs Rotherham Prediction 

Watford are the clear favorites to win this game since they a much better position and simply have grabbed 13 more points. Additionally, Watford have a superior record in the h2h meetings. Hence, we will back Watford to win on Saturday.

Safe Bet

Highlighted Player

Watford’s Ismaïla Sarr has a 100% win record against Rotherham (W2) and has scored the game’s last goal with his last three strikes in the Championship. Preferring to do his scoring early, Rotherham’s Richard Wood has seen three of his last four league goals arrive within the first half-hour, including the Millers’ goal in the 1-1 reverse fixture.
