Scunthorpe vs Rotherham predictions and betting tips for the League One play-off match on Saturday lunch time with a goals tip and match prediction included.
The second of the League One play-offs continue with a local derby between Scunthorpe and Rotherham. The Iron have been much-improved under Nick Daws and he appears to be getting the best out of players such as Duane Holmes and Hakeeb Adelekun. They draw with Bradford on the final day of the season but their place in the top six was already guaranteed by that point. They recently beat Plymouth at Glanford Park and that was a statement of intent from the Lincolnshire club. Rotherham have enjoyed a decent season under Paul Warne and their high-tempo approach has made it difficult for the opposition throughout the season. They ended the season with a 1-0 success against Blackpool. The Millers will want to take something back to the New York Stadium. They did the double over Scunny this season and will be hoping to make it a perfect three from three here. Both sides would love the chance to return to the Championship. See our Scunthorpe vs Rotherham betting tips and predictions in the article below:
Scunthorpe were excellent against Plymouth two weeks ago and they have a hugely talented squad. Many of this team played last season in the play-offs and they can only benefit from that experience. They also have Rory McArdle, who reached the final with Bradford twelve months ago. They have also been keeping clean sheets and should narrowly prevail in the home leg. The first of our Scunthorpe vs Rotherham betting tips is Scunthorpe Win which is priced at 6/4 with Coral.
There really isn’t much between these sides and the hosts have conceded just a single goal in their last four matches. Rotherham have also kept four clean sheets in five. Under 2.5 Goals is priced at 8/11 with Betfred and is the second of our Scunthorpe vs Rotherham predictions.
Ivan Toney scored in the play-offs last season and although he can be frustrating, he is very effective in the final third. Ivan Toney in the anytime goalscorer market is priced at 2/1 with Paddy Power and is the last of our Scunthorpe vs Rotherham betting tips.
Scunthorpe start as the favourites for this clash and can be backed at 6/4. Rotherham can be supported at 2/1 but a draw is also likely to be popular and it is 11/5.
Very few goals are expected in this clash with Under 2.5 Goals priced up at 8/11 whilst it’s 23/20 for three or more goals in the game.
Ivan Toney is 9/2 to net the opener in this game whilst Rotherham’s David Ball is priced at 11/2.
All of these odds are from Coral
Cameron Burgess and Murray Wallace will be fighting it out for a position at the back. Most of the rested players such as Ivan Toney, Jordan Clarke and Funso Ojo should all come back into the squad.
Rotherham are unlikely to make too many changes and don’t have any new injury worries.
