Rotherham v Leeds United tips – back a low goal count at the New York Stadium
Friday night’s Yorkshire derby set to be a tight encounter
October 13th, 2014
In addition to Sheffield Wednesday, most Rotherham United fans will have been scrolling down the fixture list to see when the Millers played Leeds United this season.
After enjoying promotion from League One last term, Rotherham this season have the chance to be the top Yorkshire team in England, with the county not represented by any club in the Premier League.
Steve Evans’ side are making a decent fist of things and the bookies have installed Rotherham as the 6/5 favourites to win this game, with Ladbrokes offering that particular price about a home win in front of the Sky cameras.
Nevertheless, it is just one win in the last eight for United who sit seventeenth in the table and will be missing ex-Leeds striker Luciano Becchio for this encounter, with the Argentine being ruled out for several weeks with injury.
Darko Milanic has recently taken charge of Leeds and is awaiting his first win with a club who parted services with Dave Hockaday earlier in the season.
Leeds were actually enjoying a good run of results under caretaker Neil Redfearn although it has been a defeat and two draws in the past three games and the one thing you could say about Milanic is that he is making the side harder to score against.
Therefore, rather than back either team with any confidence, we are going for a tight encounter at the New York Stadium and Under 2.5 Goals is a tasty enough price at 31/40 with BetVictor.
