Rotherham United vs Nottingham Forest Preview
It’s been a tough start to this Championship season for Rotherham and they currently find themselves in 20th place in the league after six games. However they are clearly stronger at home than on the road with one win and two draws at the New York Stadium. The Millers can score goals there too with five so far but they’ve also conceded four in their two 2-2 draws. Nottingham Forest are up in tenth place but are yet to win away from home with one draw and two defeats to their name; they managed a late draw against Aston Villa last weekend , scoring their first two away goals of the season in the process.
This could be a close game and a draw seems a likely outcome given both teams current form; we anticipate a 0-0 or perhaps a 1-1 so pick your teams accordingly.
Aston Villa vs Brentford Preview
Aston Villa have made a patchy start to this campaign after relegation from the Premier League but they can still rely on huge home crowds to get them through the dark times – 30k+ against Nottingham Forest last weekend. On paper their team certainly looks capable of challenging for promotion but they’ve yet to get properly to grips with Championship football. After a solid 3-0 start at home Villa have managed two draws at Villa Park but they’ll hope to improve against a Brentford team who’ve lost two and won once on the road – a 2-0 win at Brighton last weekend.
This has to be our home banker so we’ll be going for Villa players from all positions but Brentford players may be needed to fill in the gaps.
