BTTS Odds – 8.7/1 with Betfred.
Despite their lengthy struggles near the foot of the Championship table, Rotherham have been a fairly consistent team in front of goal during recent weeks having featured in just two games since the beginning of February without netting. Both teams have scored in the last six fixtures involving the Millers. Hosts Swansea produced a poor performance when beaten 4-0 at QPR last weekend but they have yet to lose a league game at the Liberty Stadium this year where they have netted three times in each of three victories this month.
Five consecutive League One victories with at least two goals netted per game has allowed Portsmouth to seriously challenge for automatic promotion although they have registered just one clean sheet on their league travels this year. Hosts Burton will provide a stern challenge for Pompey especially as they have lost just once since the beginning of March. The Brewers have also netted in each of their last seven fixtures and scored at least three times in four of five previous contests.
In recent months, Whaddon Road has become akin to a fortress for Cheltenham with just one league defeat suffered at the venue since the beginning of November. The Robins have also found the net in every home game during the same time period while visitors Oldham have failed to net in just one League Two fixture from late January onwards. Scoring twice in each of four successive prior matches ensures that the Latics will be a threat to Cheltenham.
A 1-1 home draw with Cheltenham clinched promotion into League One for Lincoln but they retain ambitions of claiming the League Two title. Having netted in every league fixture since the beginning of November, the Imps should be confident of achieving that aim but they must first visit a Carlisle outfit capable of earning decent results at Brunton Park. The Cumbrians have also netted in every league game on home soil within the last five months.
