Rotherham United vs Plymouth Argyle

, KO: 20:00 Apr 5, 2024, AESSEAL New York Stadium
Plymouth Argyle

It is a battle at the bottom of the table as Rotherham United host Plymouth Argyle in a Championship fixture on Friday. Rotherham will take confidence from a win last time out and can avoid defeat against Plymouth, who are still out of sorts.

It has been a difficult campaign for Rotherham United, who have spent much of the season rooted to the bottom of the standings. Sitting 18 points from safety, they are still expected to get relegated, but will be looking to claim some scalps before taking the plunge.

Rotherham United’s fate would have been sealed on Monday but for a 2-1 victory over Millwall. Second half goals from Sebastian Revan and Charles Wyke were enough to earn the win and delay relegation for at least one more week.

There was a fearlessness about Rotherham United last time out that they will be looking to replicate on Friday. Beyond the victory over Millwall, Leam Richardson’s men have claimed some key home wins this season like the 2-0 victory over Coventry City and the 2-1 triumph over Norwich City.

Plymouth Argyle will head into Friday’s clash hoping for a new manager bounce following the sacking Ian Forster after just three months in charge. After an initial good start their form fell away badly, with just one win from their last 11 Championship fixtures.

Director of football Neil Dewsnip and first team coach Kevin Nanceviklvell will take charge for the remainder of the season. With Plymouth Argyle sitting just one point above the relegation zone, their first task will be to steer the team away from danger.

Plymouth Argyle suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Bristol City in their previous Championship fixture. They have also picked up just two wins from their last 10 away matches, playing out five draws in that run.

How the bookies view it

Plymouth Argyle are considered overwhelming favourites among the bookies with a win priced at evens by William Hill. A victory for Rotherham United is valued at 14/5 by bet365 while a draw is set at odds of 5/2 by BoyleSports.

Head to head

Plymouth Argyle have a 9-7 advantage with five draws from 21 previous matches against Rotherham United. They also picked up a 3-2 victory in the reverse fixture back in December, although Rotherham had won the previous two meetings.

Players to watch

Tom Eaves often leads the line for Rotherham United and has four Championship goals this season. One of those goals came in the reverse fixture and the striker is priced at 10/3 by bet365 to find the net on Friday.

Morgan Whittaker has stood out for Plymouth Argyle this season, with 19 Championship goals to his name so far. The striker was also on target in the reverse fixture and is priced at 13/8 by BetVictor to get on the score sheet on Friday.

Anything else catch the eye?

It was a five goal thriller in the reverse fixture and given the poor defensive record of both teams, a similar outcome could be on the cards. Over 3.5 goals is priced at 12/5 by BetVictor, over 2.5 goals is valued at 10/11 by bet365 while Paddy Power is offering 8/11 on both teams to score.

There were more goals after the break in Rotherham United’s previous fixture and a similar pattern is priced at 11/10 by Paddy Power. Given the recent form of both teams, a double chance on Rotherham could be a safe bet at 4/5 with Unibet.
