David Prutton is backing Swansea City to see off Rotherham United with a 1-0 scoreline this weekend in his Sky Sports prediction column, with the Championship returning after the international break.
A hefty run of games awaits all professional sides in this country, now, with the hectic Christmas period set to be even busier than normal owing to the nature of this season.
With that in mind, we’ve seen the 5 subs rule brought back in from this weekend and it’ll be interesting to see how that changes the dynamic of the campaign.
Swansea, of course, will be hoping it allows them a better chance of earning promotion and Prutton is backing them to win against the Millers, but only by a single goal.
The Swans have started this season well after impressing last season and making the play-offs, though they eventually lost out to Brentford.
Indeed, they are one of the sides to beat this year but will want to kick off this run of games with a win.
Rotherham, meanwhile, sit in 19th in the table, 5 points clear of the bottom three, and will be eager to nick something against Steve Cooper’s men down in south Wales this weekend.
Prutton, though, is backing a home win.
