Victory for Rotherham

Our first pick backs Rotherham to get their way in the EFL fixture against Accrington Stanley. The hosts have a better form coming to this game. Moreover, with a clean sheet victory of 2-nil in their first game of the season, the hosts are our favourites to win. Accrington will be on the road again after losing their first match of the season to Wycombe Wanderers. Rotherham has defeated Accrington nine times, bagged two draws and lost once in the previous 12 meetings.

Goals on both sides of the pitch

Despite losing their first League One fixture a few days ago, Accrington was the better side in ball possession. They had 61% of the ball and registered three shots on goal. While offsides denied the visitors a chance to find the net, we believe it is a weakness they will address before this game. Moreover, Accrington created two big chances in the last game a few days ago and should fancy some more shots on target against Rotherham.

The hosts to score first

Rotherham has undoubtedly been the better side in previous meetings with Accrington. Moreover, the hosts have a better defensive and goal scoring record in the last few games, which is why we think they are the favourites to score first in this game.

Game Preview: Rotherham Looking for 10th Victory over Accrington

The hosts hope to get their tenth victory over Accrington in the 13th meeting between these teams. Read our match preview for more details.

Rotherham

9W, 2D and 1L in 12 meetings with Accrington Stanley mean Rotherham has always been the favourites to win this fixture. However, this is the first time these teams meet in the EFL Cup and we expect a tense game on matchday. A 2-0 victory in the first game of the season and a second home fixture should motivate the hosts to get some points in this game.

Accrington

Accrington Stanley had 1W and 2D in 12 encounters with Rotherham. The visiting manager had played against Rotherham’s manager twice but lost both games. Moreover, the visitors come to this game with back to back losses but hope to get things right on 10th August. This will be Accrington’s second game on the road after the start of a new season. After 357 games in charge, the visiting manager, John Coleman, averages 1.50 points.
