Rotherham join Shrewsbury in the League One play-off final

Rotherham join Shrewsbury in the League One play-off final

The Millers looking for a swift return to the second tier.

Rotherham United were in disarray after a campaign last season that saw them finish rock bottom of the Championship, some 28 points from safety.

But they kept faith in Paul Warne, who took over at the end of 2016, and the 45-year old has steered the Millers to a play-off final against surprise package Shrewsbury Town.

Rotherham have fond memories of this game and this venue, getting promoted to the Championship by beating Leyton Orient on penalties in 2014. 

It will be a tough ask for the Millers to repeat this feat however, although they are currently 8/11 favourites to win the contest. The Shrews meanwhile are 21/20, despite finishing the season above Rotherham.

The Championship and League One play-off finals will see the 3rd place team take on the 4th place team. If you fancy the same thing to happen in the League Two play-off final, then you can back Exeter (22/23) to qualify against Lincoln (Evs) and Notts County (19/20) to qualify against Coventry (19/20).

Oddschecker spokesman George Elek: “Paul Warne has steered the Rotherham ship around and they are now one game away from a return to the second tier. The former fitness coach has done wonders at the Millers and they will be fully confident of beating Shrewsbury Town, but many have written off the Shrews at various points during the season, yet here they are just 90 minutes from the Championship themselves.”
