Two sides both from the bottom four of the English second division meet on Friday night as Rotherham United play host to Plymouth Argyle.

Rotherham had a lot of problems last season on their return to the Championship and things have got even worse this season. The Millers currently occupy the foot of the table and have picked up just four points from their last twelve games. However, head coach Leam Richardson will take heart from the fact that all four points came at the New York Stadium.

Plymouth Argyle meanwhile have been unable to build on last season's performances. The visitors finished the 2022-23 season as winners of League One, but are currently the fourth-worst team in the Championship. One of the reasons for this is their away record, as the Pilgrims have only managed two wins away from home this season.

Betting Tips Rotherham vs Plymouth Argyle: Home & Under 2.5 goals

Rotherham United have not been at their best this season, but you can't write them off at home. The Millers are unbeaten in their last two home games and also boast a good record against Plymouth at the New York Stadium. Rotherham are unbeaten in the last four meetings between these two sides at this stadium, winning three and drawing one. None of the four matches produced more than two goals.

The absence of goals has also been the major headline in the recent games of Plymouth Argyle. Bets on Under 2.5 goals were won in six of the last seven games of Ian Foster’s side and I fancy Friday’s game to end similarly.

  • Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals
  • Rotherham vs Plymouth Argyle prediction: 1-0

Rotherham team news

Samuel Raymond Clucas will be unavailable to Rotherham head coach Leam Richardson this week due to suspension.

The midfielder is expected to serve a one match ban after picking up his fifth yellow card of the campaign in the win over Millwall last time out, but the hosts have no injuries.

Charlie Wyke is pushing for a start upfront after coming off the bench to score the winner against Millwall, while Jamie Lindsay will hope to replace Raymond Clucas in the engine room.
