Our prediction for this Championship match:
Rotherham United and Barnsley square off against each other at Aesseal New York Stadium. The Millers were not in action on Boxing Day, meaning that tired legs should not be a problem for them in the midweek clash. However, several players could miss the Barnsley game following the coronavirus outbreak. Rotherham produce much better displays at home than on the travels, but they face a difficult task in Tuesday’s clash against the in-form Tykes.
Barnsley recorded four wins in the previous five league fixtures, meaning that they are high on spirits ahead of the trip to South Yorkshire. Even though Valerien Ismael is likely to make changes to the starting XI that recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over Huddersfield on Boxing Day, away win should be considered. The likes of Herbie Kane and Victor Adeboyejo are likely to replace Matty James and Dominik Frieser in the starting XI.
