2023-24 Sky Bet Championship: Week 15 – Tuesday

Relegation-battling Rotherham host promotion-chasing Ipswich at New York Stadium in a rearranged Championship clash. 

Victory would move Rotherham to within two points of safety, whilst Ipswich can cut their deficit to league leaders – Leicester down to a single point with a win.

Lee Peltier is set to return for Rotherham after he missed their draw against QPR last weekend with a hamstring injury.

Tyler Blackett, Grant Hall, Cameron Humphreys (all hamstring), Shane Ferguson (hernia), Andre Green and Jamie Lindsay (both Achilles) remain absent.

Ipswich have no fresh injury concerns to report after their comeback 2-2 draw at Birmingham City, with Brandon Williams set to return after he missed that trip due to illness.


When is Kick-Off?

Rotherham host Ipswich at New York Stadium in a 8pm BST kick-off on Tuesday 7 November, live on Sky Sports in the UK.


Stat Attack

  • Rotherham have avoided defeat in eight of their last nine league meetings against Ipswich (W7, D1, L1).
  • Ipswich have won just one of their last six league visits to Rotherham (W1, L5).
  • Rotherham have kept clean sheets in five of their last six home matches against Ipswich, except for a 5-2 loss in November 2015.
  • Nine of Rotherham’s ten points have come from five of their seven home matches this season (W2, D3, L2).
  • Ipswich’s last three league goals have all been scored by Marcus Harness.



Although Rotherham’s overall form has been poor, their home form has been their shining light even if they did have to show proper grit to fight back against QPR but can come into this game ready for a tough test despite their strong form at home to Ipswich.

Kieran McKenna’s Tractor Boys though are flying but displayed proper team unity and grit to fight back for a point against a high-energy Birmingham, especially when they could of rolled over at 2-0 down yet resilience and clinical finishing proved key to snatching a deserved draw.

This match though is a bogey game for Ipswich but given their superior attacking quality so far this season, I do feel like they might just have enough but Rotherham will surely give them a tough test in front of their home fans given that the hosts are fighting for survival.

Prediction: Rotherham 1-2 Ipswich

Result: Rotherham 2-2 Ipswich
