Rotherham vs Aston Villa prediction

Aston Villa travel to struggling Rotherham United on Wednesday night looking to make it seven wins in a row as they look to seal a playoff spot.

Dean Smith’s side are the hottest team in the Championship right now and I cannot see anything but three points from their trip to the New York Stadium midweek.

Rotherham did beat Nottingham Forest over the weekend but Martin O’Neill’s side have been hopeless on the road all season. The Millers were hammered 6-1 at Derby County and beaten at home by Norwich City in their two previous games.

I can see Aston Villa going on a 10-game winning streak now so that they can afford to rest key players in their final two fixtures against Leeds United and Norwich City if need be, to be fresh for the playoffs. Rotherham should not cause too many problems to the visitors midweek.

Tammy Abraham, Jack Grealish and John McGinn are all in fine form whilst the Villans have only shipped three goals during this seven-game winning streak, which includes a 4-0 thrashing of Derby County and a 3-1 win at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Best bet: Aston Villa to win is 1.77 with Betfair
