Giving his usual EFL predictions to Sky Sports, David Prutton has determined how he thinks Aston Villa’s match with Rotherham on Wednesday evening will play out, claiming the Villains will prevail 2-0.
What’s he said?
With both teams having something to play for, Prutton thinks that Rotherham may be able to cause a bit of a scare as the Millers try desperately to stay in the division. Speaking to Sky Sports, the former player said:
“Rotherham are still within reach of survival, and they will fancy their chances of giving Aston Villa a scare at home, even though Dean Smith’s side are in such good form.”
The pundit then chose to focus on Villa’s last gasp win in their previous game, explaining that despite Paul Warne’s side potentially providing stiff opposition, they should be able to maintain their good form. He added:
“That was a huge result for Villa at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday as they look to seal a top-six spot. Rotherham is a tough place to go but I can’t see them not continuing their incredible run.”
All to play for
Given Rotherham’s position in the table, on paper, this match should be a walk in the park for Smith’s side. But fighting relegation, they will be battling hard for a result after defeating Nottingham Forest last weekend.
It’ll be a tough game for Villa but Prutton is right to predict that they’ll come out on top. The confidence they will have gained from that incredible win over Wednesday last Saturday will be immense and the effect those two injury-time goals will have cannot be underestimated.
The fact both teams have something to play for will make this a fascinating clash. However, given their six-match winning streak Villa should have enough about them to continue in the same fashion.
