Wigan to win it

We kick off our Rotherham vs Wigan predictions by backing Wigan to win. Both sides have shown similar form across their last five games with Rotherham having taken eight points from 15 available with Wigan having collected seven across the same period. That obviously leaves things marginally in the favour of Rotherham, however, Wigan have won three straight away games on the spin and haven't lost an away league match all season. On top of that, they dominate the head to head record between the sides having not lost to the Millers since 2018 – that's four years ago.

Anticipating goals

Our next prediction for this match is that both teams will score. Rotherham have scored six goals across their past five games whilst Wigan have also hit the net six times in their past six outings. Both sides have been shipping goals too; Rotherham have conceded four goals across their past four with Wigan conceding nine in their past five. Combine those stats with the head to head record that shows three of the last five clashes ended with goals at both ends and backing both sides to score seems like the value bet.

League One battlers to Championship contenders

Rewind to last season and Rotherham vs Wigan was a League One clash. Now not only is it a Championship encounter but both sides have made good strides early on to set things up to ensure it stays like that next season as well. In fact, if either side win this match they could end the weekend in the top six!

Rotherham arrive in this game with virtually a clean bill of health. Only Shane Ferguson and Lee Peltier are missing. That will give the Millers an extra confidence boost ahead of what will be perceived as a very winnable match.

Rotherham Predicted lineup – Johansson, Harding, Wood, Humphreys, Norton-Cuffy, Rathbone, Barlaser, Wiles, Bramall, Ogbene, Washington

Wigan's injury problems are nearing an end with Tendayi Darikwa, Gwion Edwards and Jordan Cousins all due back in October. Unfortunately, that's unlikely to be in time for this game. That said, there is still more than enough talent in the Wigan squad to make a nuisance of themselves here.

Wigan Predicted lineup – Amos, Whatmough, Darikwa, Tilt, McLean, Power, Shinnie, Lang, Keane, Aasgaard, Magennis
