Rotherham United vs Blackburn Rovers match preview

Two sides fresh off altogether contrasting opening day results are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at the New York Stadium this Saturday, August 12th.

The matchup in question will see Rotherham United act as hosts, in a meeting with Blackburn Rovers.

Beginning with the former, Rotherham’s latest effort to maintain their spot in England’s 2nd tier got off to something of a nightmare start last weekend.

This came as the Millers made the trip to the Bet365 Stadium, to take on Stoke City.

A nightmare first-half saw Matt Taylor’s troops fall into a three-goal hole, assuring that Lee Peltier’s finish on the other side of the interval proved to be little more than a consolation en route to a 4-1 drubbing.

Adding insult to injury, meanwhile, was a red card picked up by Cafu, who will now be forced to sit out the coming weekend’s action.

Turning attentions to Saturday’s visitors to the New York Stadium, Blackburn enjoyed an altogether more encouraging opening day’s work.

Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side were afforded a tough first day’s work, in the form of a showdown with West Bromwich Albion at Ewood Park.

Early goals on the part of Dilan Markanday and Harry Leonard, though, ultimately proved enough to guide Rovers to the right side of a 2-1 result.

After missing out on the Championship playoffs in agonising fashion in 2022/23, Tomasson and co. could not have asked for a better start in their quest to clinch a top-six berth this time round.

And we at 101 are backing Blackburn to make it two wins from two to open the campaign, in getting the better of Rotherham in a little over 24 hours’ time.
