Brentford vs. Rotherham United Match Analysis and Prediction

Brentford has a golden chance to strengthen their bid for a top-three finish in the Championship this week. The side play host to Rotherham United at the Griffin Park on Tuesday with kickoff at 9 pm.

The hosts overcame their drawing streak with a 1-0 win over Bournemouth, whereas their opponents recorded their fourth straight defeat in the Championship in their 1-0 loss to Barnsley.

It was a bad taste for Thomas Flank when Watford became the second team to secure automatic promotion. The side has to settle for playoffs for a chance in next season’s Premier League.

Nevertheless, there is much to remain confident for, especially after their 1-0 win over Bournemouth. It was a hard-fought win, given the side defended nearly the second half with only ten men.

Moreover, the win ended Bournemouth’s eight-game winning streak, something which might come in handy, especially when the two teams lock horns in the playoffs next month. The win marked their nine unbeaten streaks in the Championship and recorded their fourth clean sheet in five fixtures.

In contrast, things are different when it comes to Rotherham United, with relegation woes more likely than even in case of a loss on Tuesday. The side is four points adrift of the red dotted line while Hull City is already promoted from league one.
