Rotherham United v Wigan Athletic - Sky Bet League One
Rotherham are winless in seven league games against Wigan

Rotherham United host Wigan Athletic at the New York Stadium in the EFL Championship on Saturday as both sides look to return to winning ways.

With 14 points from nine games, the Millers are down in eighth position of the league standings and have seen an inconsistent run.

Paul Warne's side were also held to a goalless stalemate by Middlesbrough in their last game before the international break.

However, one thing going for them right now is a stoic defense, having conceded only six times this season, the third-lowest by any side in the Championship right now.

Wigan, meanwhile, are down in 12th with 13 points and have won the same number of league games this season as Rotherham.

The Latics started their campaign with three consecutive draws before picking up their first win of the season away to Birmingham.

After two more setbacks, the Greater Manchester outfit picked up consecutive wins against Luton Town and Huddersfield before going down 1-0 to Reading.

Rotherham United vs Wigan Athletic Prediction

Neither side have been consistent this season and they have both struggled to hit the throttle, so this could be a dull, low-scoring affair.
