Solihull Moors vs Rotherham Betting Tips & Predictions
Solihull Moors have been a non-league outfit since their foundation in 2007, although the Midlands side are currently sitting second in the National League and have a serious chance of landing promotion this season.
The Moors are managed by former England goalkeeper Tim Flowers, with the team having landed victories away to Barrow and Oxford City to reach this stage of the competition and they’ll relish the opportunity to take on League One opponents at Damson Park.
Solihull have won nine of their eleven home games in the league this season, with Moors averaging two goals per match in front of their own fans and striker Paul McCallum is in excellent form after pilfering five goals in his past six encounters.
This FA Cup second round tie represents a magnificent opportunity for Solihull to reach the third round for the first time in their history and they will want to make life difficult for a Rotherham United side who themselves will fancy the chance to meet Premier League opponents in January.
The Millers are clearly one of the better teams in the third tier, with Paul Warne’s side boasting strong away form which has seen them land six victories in ten matches played on the road.
However, United were made to sweat away to Maidenhead in the previous round after going a goal down only to score three times against ten men in the final twenty minutes and this could be a close encounter.
Rotherham lost 3-2 at Portsmouth during the week and they were also two goals down at MK Dons in their previous match before rallying to win the game 3-2.
We think that Moors are worth backing on the Asian Handicap with a +1 goal start. It means money back if they’re beaten by a single goal and a profit if the match ends in a draw or home win.
Solihull +1 @ 1.55 with bet365
