Rotherham vs Scunthorpe predictions and betting tips for the League One play-off second leg on Wednesday evening with a goals tip and match prediction included.
Rotherham were just minutes away from taking a 2-1 lead into this second leg but they were pegged back later on during the first leg. The Millers are dreaming of an instant return to the Championship and they’ll be hoping to use home advantage to book their place at Wembley. Paul Warne has called upon his players to ‘seize the moment’ and has insisted that his side must not under-perform here. The Millers have a few injury concerns ahead of this return leg but their fast-paced approach is unlikely to be compromised by those potential absentees. Scunthorpe will be desperate not to fall at this hurdle for the second season running but they can’t afford to fall behind again here. There were plenty of missed chances during the first leg and some dodgy defending on show and the second leg could be a hugely exciting 90 minutes. See our Rotherham vs Scunthorpe betting tips and predictions in the article below:
The Millers should be able to get the job complete here in front of their own fans. They were marginally the better side at Glanford Park and can benefit from home advantage here. The fans should turn out in their numbers here and Paul Warne is unlikely to let complacency creep in.The first of our Rotherham vs Scunthorpe betting tips is Rotherham win which is priced at 6/5 with 888Sport.
If the defending in the first leg was anything to go by, this could be another high-scoring affair. Scunthorpe know that they need to score here and have plenty of attack-minded players. Both Teams to Score? Yes is priced at 10/11 with William Hill and is the second of our Rotherham vs Scunthorpe predictions.
There are a number of possible goalscorers in this tie but I’m going to take a chance on a big-price. Richard Wood is extremely handy from a set-piece situation and it could be the big defender who makes the different. Richard Wood in the anytime goalscorer market is priced at 12/1 with Betfred and is the last of our Rotherham vs Scunthorpe betting tips.
Rotherham start as the favourites for this tie and can be backed at 6/5 for this second leg. A draw, which is priced at 28/13 would send us into extra time. Scunthorpe are considered outsiders and can be backed at 27/11.
Despite not scoring many goals recently, David Ball can be backed at 7/2 in the first goalscorer market and he is the favourite. Team-mate Michael Smith can be backed at 41/10 whilst Ivan Toney is available at 23/4 for Scunthorpe.
All of these odds are from 888Sport
Rotherham have injury worries over the two goalscorers from the first leg with Joe Newell and Jon Taylor both carrying knocks which were sustained in Lincolnshire at the weekend. Joe Mattocks will also be assessed.
Matt Gilks may not make the second leg for Scunthorpe with the former Blackpool goalkeeper sustaining an injury on Saturday.
