Rotherham have made a good start to life in the Championship; does that allow them to think about a cup run? Find out with our Rotherham vs Morecambe match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Rotherham to win and keep it clean

Rotherham United are currently on a 15 match unbeaten run, a streak that stretches back to their previous campaign; they've won eight of those matches, with seven draws. In contrast, Morecambe have not enjoyed the same form as Rotherham United; they have no wins at the end of regulation time in their last 10 matches. Additionally, Morecambe have not been very efficient in front of goal; they blanked in five of their last seven matches, scoring just twice in that seven-game stretch. Considering Rotherham allowed just one goal in their last three games, we're backing them to win whilst keeping a clean sheet.

Going south of 2.5 goals

We've mentioned that Morecambe managed just two goals in their last seven matches; as a result of their lack of goals, their games tend to be low-scoring games. In fact, seven of Morecambe's last eight matches saw less than three goals scored, including their last four; with four of their last seven matches going under 1.5. Considering three of Rotherham's last five matches were low-scoring games, we don't think these teams will score a lot of goals here.

Can Rotherham continue their fine form?

Last season these two were in the same league, League One. Rotherham though were a million miles better than Morecambe as they won promotion. Their winning form has continued in the Championship whilst Morecambe are struggling in the third tier. It hardly looks like being set up for an upset but stranger things have happened!

Rotherham United have been a difficult team to beat; they have no losses in their last 15 matches in all competitions, with eight wins and seven draws. However, it's worth noting that Rotherham United won just three of their last nine games, as six of them ended in stalemates; they'll be eyeing a place in the third round of this tournament as Morecambe come visiting.

Rotherham Predicted lineup – Johansson, Hall, Wood, Humphreys, Barlaser, Peltier, Rathbone, Wiles, Ferguson, Ogbene, Washington

Morecambe have been going through a rough patch so far this season; they've won just one of their last 10 matches, and even that win was on penalties. Derek Adams' men have no wins in their last three matches; will they be able to put an end to that run here?

Morecambe Predicted lineup – Ripley, Delaney, Bedeau, Rawson, Love, Weir, Gibson, Hunter, Taylor, Obika, Gnahoua
