No significant weaknesses :D

I like the look of Rotherham's weaknesses;

 

Defending the wings, defending through balls, defending against skillful players, defending against long shots, defending counter attacks, defending set pieces, defending, defending, defending.

 

Especially when stacked up against our strengths;

Attacking down the wings, attacking with through balls, attacking through long shots, attacking through set pieces, attacking, attacking, attacking.

Feel much more confident how Shelvey is back. Not that we would have struggled against Rotherham anyway but it's good to know they can now be properly put to the sword. 3-0 IMO.

Think this might be a frustrating one tbh, they're going to sit so deep with an entire team behind the ball putting all the onus on us to find our way through it, there will be no room in behind to speak of.

Ironically that would be more of a problem if Gayle was fit and starting, but Murphy (I presume) will be looking to get onto the end of crosses from Ritchie, Shelvey etc. They apparently give away quite a few free kicks in dangerous areas and can't defend set-pieces :lol:

 

An early goal would mean they'd have to push out a bit, at that point I trust Shelvey to find runners with searching balls into the pockets of space they leave.

Rotherham picked up their first win in ages last weekend against Norwich. Who, by the way, are now 8 points off the play-offs.

 

Still don't see them offering much threat, with Shelvs back I can see us getting an early goal and putting them to the sword. 5-0, Murphy hat-trick.

My thoughts on the upcoming match have no impact on my score prediction. 3-1 is the way forward.

Aye centre backs going into a blind panic anytime the ball approaches the box doesn't really show up on statistics.

 

I'm going with 3-0, we did struggle to break these down last time mind but I do agree with Fish that we might actually fare better with a big lump up front.
