It has not been often in recent times where Wycombe Wanderers have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, The Blues have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 9 goals along the way. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, though.

Team News: Rotherham United
Thanks to a completely injury-free group ready to go, Rotherham United manager Paul Warne has zero fitness concerns to report coming into this game.
We reckon that The Millers seem most likely to begin the game with a 4-4-2 lineup, giving starts to Viktor Johansson, Wes Harding, Angus MacDonald, Michael Ihiekwe, Joe Mattock, Chiedozie Ogbene, Matt Crooks, Jamie Lindsay, Kieran Sadlier, Freddie Ladapo and Michael Smith.
Our thinking is that Rotherham United and Wycombe Wanderers could well both score and end up finding themselves in a fairly even game here.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. That is why we are leaning toward a very close game with a 1-1 score draw at the end of this one.
