Rotherham United vs Swansea City Tips and Prediction
Despite losing its form toward the close of the previous campaign, Rotherham was still able to hold onto the automatic promotion berth, finally finishing one point ahead of Milton Keynes Dons in third place in League One.
Under manager Paul Warne, the Yorkshire-based team has a major yo-yo cycle, with their record reading: relegated from the Championship, promoted from League One, relegated from the Championship, promoted from League One, demoted from the Championship, promoted from League One.
The star strikers of the past four seasons, Michael Smith and Freddie Ladapo, have both chosen to drop back down to a level to Sheffield Wednesday and Ipswich Town respectively, indicating the magnitude of the task awaiting him and his players.
To replace the goal threat of the departing pair at this level with Tom Eaves and Conor Washington is obviously a massive ask. Both will exhibit the diligence that Warne expects of his players, but neither has ever amassed more than ten goals in a Championship season.
All things considered, Rotherham has gone seven games without a loss in the preseason, and Warne will be hoping that three teams will be less competitive than his team this year. Under his leadership, his players will unquestionably always give it their all, beginning with a challenging test against Swansea on Saturday.
While Swansea, captained by former Norwich City defender Russell Martin, occasionally shown flashes of brilliance in their inaugural season, they eventually paid the price for a weak defense by failing to make a playoff push.
In the Championship last season, only five clubs gave up more goals than they did, therefore it is obvious where Martin needs to concentrate on making improvements in the upcoming season.
In addition to Nathan Wood, Harry Darling has left his former team for an estimated £2 million, giving Martin more alternatives in the center of defense. Joe Allen, a fan favorite, should assist the Welsh team in maintaining possession of the ball in midfield to an even greater quality after returning on a free transfer from Stoke City.
However, Martin will be desperate to fend off any offers for strikers Joel Piroe and Michael Obafemi, who combined for 34 league goals last season. Flynn Downes’s presence in the middle of the park will be greatly missed after the 23-year-old left for West Ham for close to £10m. A playoff push at Liberty Stadium this year has all the makings, should they be able to hold onto the pair and continue to adapt to Martin’s possession system. The trip to Rotherham on Saturday will be a demanding test of their ability to dismantle teams that often look to defend first and foremost.
we anticipate a long, challenging season for Rotherham at this level, beginning with a difficult test against Swansea on Saturday.
One of the stronger attack combinations in the division is Piroe and Obafemi, who might have fun playing against the Millers’ defense.
