Rotherham United vs Sutton United

, KO: 15:00 Apr 3, 2022, Wembley Stadium
Sutton United

Rotherham United and Sutton United will look to get their hands on some silverware as they clash in the EFL Trophy final on Sunday. Rotherham are setting the pace one tier above their League Two opponents, and should have the extra quality in this one.

Rotherham United needed penalties to see off Hartlepool United in the semi-final of the EFL Trophy. Michael Smith netted a brace as they came from behind twice to earn a 2-2 draw in normal time before winning the shootout.

The Millers have been the team to beat in League One this season and are chasing promotion as they sit one point clear at the top of the table. Paul Warne’s men were beaten 3-0 by Shrewsbury Town in their previous fixture, although that was only their second defeat in their last 16 matches across all competitions.

Rotherham United are often hard to beat and whether in normal time or penalties, have claimed 11 wins from their last 16 matches across all competitions. They have also made four trips to Wembley since 1996, emerging victorious three times.

Sutton United also needed penalties to book their place in Sunday’s final as they saw off Wigan in the last four. Both teams battled to a 1-1 draw in normal time with William Randall-Hurren getting the goal for Sutton, who went on to win the shootout.

Matt Gray’s men warmed up for the trip to Wembley with a 2-0 defeat at Port Vale in League Two. They proved to be no match for the hosts and finished with just a single attempt on target in 90 minutes.

That result is a pointer to Sutton United’s recent struggles as they do not head into Sunday’s final in the best form. Sitting 10th in League Two, they have claimed just one win from their last five matches across all competitions.

Rotherham United have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 11/14 to claim the win. A victory for Sutton United is valued at 7/2 by BoyleSports while a draw is set at odds of 13/5 by Paddy Power.
