Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Ryan Manning – on loan at Rotherham United from Queens Park Rangers – has been in good form this season, and was on the scoresheet against Stoke City last time out. The 22-year-old is at 11/1 in the first goalscorer market with bet365, which is one of our Championship predictions.

2 We fancy:

Today’s football prediction is the 1-1 draw, which can be backed at 5/1 with Paddy Power. The recent meetings between these two teams have been tight, and we expect the points to be shared at the New York Stadium on Wednesday night.

5/1 1-1 draw

One to Watch: Andreas Weimann

Andreas Weimann has scored five times in 10 Championship appearances for Bristol City this season, but is without a goal in his last five league matches.

The 27-year-old is a new signing at Bristol City following a move from Derby County during the summer, and he has certainly made a positive early impression.

Rotherham United have only won one of their last six matches in all competitions, and Weimann will fancy his chances of returning to the scoresheet on Wednesday night.

The 14-time Austria international is available at 11/2 in the first goalscorer market with bet365, which is worth considering in the football predictions market.

Bristol City boss Lee Johnson has no fresh injury concerns from the XI that started the 1-1 draw with Aston Villa on Friday night.

Famara Diedhiou could come into the team, however, with Matt Taylor the likeliest to drop out if that change does occur.

Rotherham United vs Bristol City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Rotherham extend their unbeaten run at home?

Five points and eight positions currently separate Rotherham United and Bristol City in the Championship table ahead of their meeting on Wednesday night. Indeed, Rotherham have collected 10 points from their 10 matches this season to sit in 18th, while Bristol City occupy 10th position with 15 points. Both teams will enter the match off the back of draws, with Rotherham sharing the points with Stoke City on Saturday, and Bristol City playing out a 1-1 with Aston Villa on Friday night.

Rotherham are 5/2 as part of the best football betting tips. Paul Warne’s side, as mentioned above in this Championship preview, will enter the match off the back of a 2-2 draw with Stoke on Saturday. The Millers earned promotion from League One last season, and have already managed three Championship wins this season. That said, Rotherham are without a victory in their last three with Brentford, and lost 1-0 to the Robins when they last locked horns in February 2017.

Bristol City are 11/10 to collect all three points on Wednesday night. Lee Johnson’s side will enter the match off the back of a 1-1 draw with Villa, and currently sit 10th in the Championship table on 15 points. The Robins are actually only one point off the top six, and will be looking to make it four games unbeaten against Rotherham when they make the trip to South Yorkshire this week. Bristol City have lost their last two Championship matches on the road, but have won at both Queens Park Rangers and Swansea City since the start of the 2018-19 campaign.

The draw is available at 23/10, which is worth considering in the football score predictions market. As mentioned above in this Championship preview, both teams will enter the match off the back of draws at the weekend, while two of their last three meetings have also finished level. That includes a 2-2 draw when they last locked horns at the home of Rotherham in September 2016.

Predicted Score: Rotherham United 1 - 1 Bristol City
