Match Preview: Town vs Rotherham United

16 February 2018

Marcus Braddock previews Saturday's game with the Millers

Preview time is here again and it's first place versus fourth as in form Rotherham visit the Montgomery Waters Meadow. Last time we met, Rotherham were on the end of a 2-1 home defeat but since then their form has been quite impressive. Their last twelve games have seen three draws and nine wins in League One as they've risen above almost everyone. Obviously they'll be welcoming the opportunity to take a little revenge and looking at their recent highlights we've got a very difficult game on our hands as we attempt to return to winning ways at home.

Selected stats

The Millers have earned conceded an average of 1.3 goals per away game and have also scored 1.27.
Although Rotherham start each half of away games well with four goals scored in the fifteen minutes of the first and second half, they are most vulnerable during the middle periods of both halves with six conceded  in each.
Their best period of the game is the last fifteen minutes of away games with 5 goals.

Squad News
Rotherham:There is a question mark over the head of the influential Joe Mattock.
Town: Paul Hurst has no new injury worries.

It was an odd week where each of the top three slipped up in one way or another so who knows what will happen this weekend? Obviously Wigan are in the cup but we will have to match Blackburn's result at home to Bury to stay top. We seem to play an in form team every other week at the moment but runs do come to an end and let's hope one does just that and another starts.
