Stoke City vs Rotherham United match preview

Two sides who closed out the 2022/23 campaign separated by just three points in The Championship table are set to lock horns as part of the new season’s opening round of fixtures.

The matchup in question will see Stoke City act as hosts, in a meeting with Rotherham United at The Bet365 Stadium.

Beginning with the former, Stoke will be keen to kick things into gear in altogether more fruitful fashion than they finished out last season.

This comes with the Potters having seen a push towards the heights of mid-table brought to a firm end, by way of an alarming stretch of just two points secured from 21.

The board at The Bet365 Stadium, to their credit, have since done their part in ensuring that such a run does not continue into 2023/24, in overseeing a hugely productive summer transfer window.

To this point, Stoke have secured reinforcements in the form of Chiquinho, Mark Travers, Enda Stevens, Ki-Jana Hoever, Wesley Moraes, Ryan Mmaee and more.

The financial restrictions on the Millers, though, mean that all of these arrivals have come in the form of either free transfers, or loans.

Having only managed to fully stave off the drop over the closing weeks of the term last time out, such reinforcement will not exactly inspire confidence of a season of great success at The New York Stadium.

Instead, Rotherham will be betting on continuity proving itself key, in the hopes of kicking on from a 19th-placed finish.

We at 101, however, view it as unlikely that such endeavours will begin in positive fashion this weekend.

Instead, we are backing hosts Stoke City to ultimately emerge on the right side of the result come the full-time whistle at The Bet365 Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
