Wigan v Rotherham, Saturday 1st September, 15:00
These two promoted teams will battle it out for the second time this season following their League Cup clash earlier this month. That match saw Rotherham come out on top in what was a very entertaining display, with as many as four goals on view and we expect this to follow suit.
The hosts have seen more than three goals in each of their two fixtures at the DW Stadium, while across all competitions, this has occurred in four of their six games home or away. Rotherham have also been involved in some high scoring encounters, conceding five on the opening day of the season at Brentford, with over half of their seven outings across all competitions seeing a minimum of four strikes.
Birmingham v QPR, Saturday 1st September, 15:00
Birmingham are currently lying just one place above their opponents in 21stfollowing a disappointing start to their 2018/19 campaign. The hosts have lost two of five winless games, but they’re unbeaten at St Andrews after two outings and going back into last season they’ve won four of seven unbeaten matches here.
Meanwhile, QPR finally managed to register some points on the board with a win hosting Wigan, but prior to that they’d been humiliated with four straight defeats as they shipped 13 goals. In fact, the visitors have lost each of their last six on their travels, scoring just two goals across these. The latest saw them get thumped 7-1 at the Hawthorns and having lost 61% of their away fixtures last term, the Brummies appear excellent value at evens.
