Huddersfield Town try to bounce back from a 7-0 loss at Championship leaders Norwich City on Tuesday. They are 19th in the table and host 22nd placed Rotherham United who are in the relegation zone. Huddersfield are eight points above their opponents but have played three games more than them. A loss here and their relegation problems would multiply. They have only won one of their last eight league games, with just two victories in 17. A form guide for the last 15 league games has them 22nd in the table with Rotherham in 17th. Only one of their last eight home league fixtures has been won. It was a good one though, beating promotion chasing Swansea City 4-1. That was a rare good performance by Huddersfield who have drawn four of their last six in the Championship including the last three home matches. Another wouldn't be a bad result for them here, they just can't afford to see Rotherham making ground on them. Five of the last seven at home have had under 2.5 goals scored in them.
Rotherham have games in hand due to health problems at the club. It's not too good on the pitch either and they are seven points from safety. They have four games in hand on Birmingham City, who are a place above them in the table. Unless those games in hand earn points, they don't really mean much. They have lost their last two league games with no goals scored. The most recent game was a 3-0 home loss to bottom-of-the-table Wycombe Wanderers. Eight of their last ten league games have been lost and they need to get back into winning ways. After this match, they have four consecutive home games in the space of nine days . Away form has seen Rotherham win six but lose ten league games with two wins in the last three. Four of their last five away fixtures have seen under 2.5 goals scored in them. With both teams struggling, go for that stat to come up in this match.
