Prutton, a regular presenter on Sky Sports, said: "Rotherham looked down and out at Hull in midweek but they rallied superbly in the second half and could easily have claimed all three points. Paul Warne's side may not be the most talented but they have exceptional fight and spirit.

"It's three unbeaten for Steve Bruce at Sheffield Wednesday. They have only scored one goal in that time but he looks to have fixed a defence that was leaking goals at an alarming rate earlier in the season. I fancy them to sneak this one."
