Foot Predictions shows Wednesday’s championship clash between Bournemouth and Rotherham United, including hunches, preview and possible lineups.
Jonathan Woodgate potentially has one more game to claim to become Bournemouthnext permanent manager when the cherries receive Rotherham United for Vitality Stadium.
Bournemouth reaches the midweek round in sixth place on the table, while visitor Rotherham is 21st and just one point above the relegation zone.
Former England defender Woodgate won two and drew one of his three games as an interim coach after Jason Tindall.
The 41-year-old man is believed to be competing to take control permanently, although people like Marco Silva, David Wagner and Patrick Viera they are all high profile candidates.
Woodgate may have been satisfied with his work since entering the field, although Saturday’s goalless draw with Nottingham Forest left Bournemouth looking over his shoulder at the pursuing squad.
In form, Cardiff City are six points behind Cherries in the final playoff slot, and the two sides are set to face off next week in a potentially huge clash.
Bournemouth cannot lose any more points, as they have now won just one of their last seven league matches – a 3-2 victory over Birmingham City in their last home match.
However, the south coast team have lost twice in the last three league games at Vitality Stadium, compared with just two defeats in their previous 14 games.
This could be good news for a team from Rotherham who boasts a three-game winning streak on their travels, defeating Derby County, Middlesbrough and Preston North End in that series.
Paul WarneThe team team lost 2-1 to Cardiff at the end of the game, but three wins in the last five in total is the kind of way that will keep them above the dotted line.
Rotherham also had eight days of rest before Wednesday’s clash with Bournemouth after Saturday’s game against Queens Park Rangers was postponed.
However, the Millers have been unbeaten in five league games against Cherries since 2009, most recently playing a 2-2 draw in November’s New York Stadium clash.
