Rotherham vs Brighton
English Football League Championship
Date: 7th March 2017, Tuesday
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Aesseal New York Stadium (Rotherham).
With the latest 2-0 home defeat against Aston Villa, Rotherham have lost 4 in a row and 8 in their last 9 matches. They need another 18 points to save their season which is 1 point more than what they managed from their 35 matches so far. With 9 matches left to play in the regular season, it will be a matter of days before we know that Rotherham has been officially relegated from the Championship.
Brighton have fallen to back-to-back defeats for the second time this season with the 3-0 away loss at Nottingham on the weekend. Their head-coach Chris Hughton will have some concerns as the automatic promotion spot is under threat as Huddersfield is 3 points away and has a game in hand. The table could turn on Tuesday if Brighton fell to a another defeat here; and Huddersfield win their match against Aston Villa.

Rotherham vs Brighton: Prediction
With Rotherham in a terrible form and marred by injuries, this must end in a straight forward win for Brighton.
A larger portion of the games between these two had ended in under 2.5 goals. But, we are very likely to see the exact opposite of this on Tuesday. Therefore, it is worth backing over 2.5 goals for this fixture.
