Win for Rotherham

Rotherham have been excellent for several weeks. The recent win over Sheffield Wednesday has provided the team with a sixth consecutive league victory. Wigan have not been playing great football for several weeks. The back-to-back wins over Charlton and Crewe may not be a barometer for the team’s performance against the table leaders. Wigan have managed just one win in the last four trips to the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

Total goals under 2.5

Rotherham and Wigan have played out games for four out of the last five meetings. Just one of those games has produced more than 2.5 goals. Rotherham are on a run of four consecutive clean sheets since conceding against Cambridge United in the EFL Trophy. Wigan lack clarity going forward especially in away matches.

Both teams to score – no

Wigan have not scored in three consecutive away matches. This will provide some level of positivity for the visiting team knowing that they would be able to continue their good set of results at home. Rotherham have not conceded in five straight league games.
