Rotherham to Win
It has been three years since Rotherham and Scunthorpe last met in a competitive environment. The time has been tough for the Iron, who have faced the ignominy of relegation in this period. As the two face-offs at the Aesseal New York Stadium, Rotherham will surely make matters worse for them, adding to their four-match unbeaten run against them.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
Rotherham will eagerly look to build on their 16 goal tally in League One as Scunthorpe play them a visit. They have scored two goals in their last four meetings with Scunthorpe and we expect them to build on that return. The Iron cannot be ruled out of the fixture as they scored thrice in their last engagements in the Trophy. With two of their last three meetings finish with Over 2.5 total goals, we expect this coming together to have a similar result.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
The Millers continued their unbeaten run in League One with a 2-0 win over Cheltenham on the road. As they return to their home surroundings for this EFL Trophy meeting, we expect them to hit the back of the net with relative ease. Neil Cox will have his plans to trouble Rotherham and we expect them to come to light. His side failed to trouble Manchester City U21 and a repeat of the same will have dire consequences.
Rotherham vs Scunthorpe: Team News and Match Preview
Paul Warne will be pleased with how the Millers are performing in League One this season. They are two points adrift of pole position and in the fight for promotion playoffs. The latter will not be worth considering if they can extend their five-match unbeaten streak. With Wigan and Sunderland both dropping points, they can push their rivals to the limit and be masters of their destiny. Michael Smith has provided seven goals for them so far and his productivity will have a say on the final matters.
The dilly-dallying by Peter Swann at Glandrod Park is having its impact on Scunthorpe United. Neil Cox feels isolated in the dugout and the impact of it is being felt in their results. The Irons find themselves at the bottom of the League Two points table and have a very realistic chance of getting lost in the obscurity below. A club with a 122-year history needs more support and those in power need to be made accountable. As it stands, it's all dark as Scunthorpe have only accumulated one win from their ten league outings.
