Opinion: Why I Believe Rotherham United Will Stay Up

Rotherham United will stay in the Championship come the end of the 2018/19 season. 

The Millers seven match unbeaten run in the league came to an end when they travelled to Carrow Road on Saturday against manager Paul Warne’s boyhood club and Sky Bet Championship leaders Norwich City.

During the clash on Saturday, the Millers took the lead through on-loan Brighton man Richie Towell, but secondhalf goals from Todd Cantwell, Maximillan Aarons and Teemu Pukki sealed the comeback for Daniel Farke’s men.

Prior to the trip to face the high-flying Canaries, Paul Warne’s men embarked on the seven match unbeaten run and this why I feel the Millers will stay in the division.

The way Paul Warne has got his team performing in recent weeks is the reason I believe they will be able to stay in the Championship.

Warne has got a great bunch of players in his squad this season and he always says that he likes to have good human beings around the place and judging by the performances I’ve seen this campaign so far Warne has just got the good human beings he has talked about.

Looking back over the season so far and especially over the seven games prior to the Norwich fixture you can see why the Millers were on the seven match unbeaten run.

Rotherham have given some very good opposition some tough games and if they play like they can and know they can then I can see no reason as to why Rotherham will be a Championship club next season.

The Millers have got two very tasty fixtures coming up over the festive period starting this Saturday (8 December) when they travel to Hillsborough to face local Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday and just three days before Christmas Day (22 December) they welcome former Premier League and current play-off chasing outfit West Bromwich Albion to the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

As well as those mentioned above during the festive run of fixtures the Millers face Reading (home 15/12), Bolton (away 26/12), Bristol City (away 29/12) and Preston (home 1/1) which takes their fixtures  to the start of 2019.
