Match preview

Two sides in the thick of the battle against relegation are set to lock horns in a Championship showdown at the New York Stadium on Saturday, December 10th.

The clash in question will see a Rotherham United outfit hopeful of making it a trio of successive outings without defeat play host to a Bristol City side trailing them by just two points in the table.

First, let’s take a look at the pre-World Cup endeavours of the former.

Rotherham, after an alarming run of four defeats from five, finally managed to get things back on track early last month, courtesy of an altogether commendable pair of results.

And this was followed, most recently, by a hard-fought share of the spoils at Luton. After Jamie Lindsay put Matt Taylor’s men on the front foot inside the opening minute at Kenilworth Road, only a last-gasp Luke Berry strike prevented Rotherham from making it two wins on the spin.

The Millers, as a result, remain 16th in the table in England’s 2nd tier, just three points clear of the drop zone.

Safe to say, then, that a return to winning ways will be very much on the agenda for all associated with Saturday’s hosts at the New York Stadium.

Hopeful of preventing as much, though, will be a Bristol City side also hopeful of making it a trio of successive league outings without defeat.

Nigel Pearson’s troops, of course, have endured an altogether difficult campaign to date, en route to wins in just six of their 21 attempts.

Like their upcoming hosts, though, across the final week leading into the recent World Cup break, Bristol finally showcased some long overdue signs of life.

After first bagging a share of the spoils at in-form Middlesbrough, the Robins followed up with another impressive point last time out, courtesy of a goalless stalemate at Vicarage Road.

Such efforts, in turn, leave Bristol and Rotherham separated by just two points in the table.

Making a definitive call on the likeliest outcome upon the sounding of the full-time whistle in south Yorkshire on Saturday is therefore an altogether difficult one.

We at 101, as a result, are backing an eventual draw between the two sides.
