Rotherham vs Plymouth Argyle tips and predictions: Visitors to edge one-goal thriller

Rotherham United and Plymouth Argyle will aim to delight the viewing public when they clash in the Championship live on Sky Sports on Friday (2000 BST)

Sky Sports subscribers with nothing better to do on Friday night should do their best to make plans or they’ll be treated to Rotherham playing host to Plymouth in the Championship.

The hosts ended a 14-match winless run with a late win over Millwall on Easter Monday. The Millers are still destined for League One, but they can have a say in who joins them.

The Lions are in deep trouble after failing to win over Easter weekend while Plymouth were also beaten twice in 48 hours.

Argyle have lost five of six leaving them one point above Huddersfield and in a difficult position ahead of their trip to the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

They couldn’t hand-pick a better opponent as the Millers had lost 11 of 12 before Friday and haven’t won back-to-back games this season.

Notably, they have followed each of their three home wins with a draw, and the visitors have won just two away games this campaign.

Let us build more anticipation if you aren’t already drooling at the prospect.

One more goal from the Millers would have doubled the tally they’d managed in their previous nine home games, while managerless Argyle have scored four in nine.

The club opted to sack manager Ian Foster just three months into his tenure after their 1-0 defeat to Bristol City.

The Devon club have six games to save their Championship status and that move seems carefully designed to give them a new manager bounce at the opportune moment.

 

Key stats
