Tip Huddersfield Town - Rotherham
Huddersfield Town’s season in the Championship sunk to another big low after suffering a 7-0 loss to Norwich City on Tuesday and they will hope to put it back on track when they host Rotherham United. Huddersfield are in 19th place with 43 points ahead of this game with Rotherham placed 22nd on 35 points. The loss in the last game left Huddersfield eight points above the relegation zone, and it was their ninth loss in 17 league matches, and across all competitions, they’ve managed just three wins in 20 matches. Huddersfield are not very good in regards to scoring and much of their troubles this season have emanated from this. The team has managed more than a goal in just one of the last 10 matches. A poor home run hasn’t helped either, with the team winning just one of the last eight league games at their backyard. However, there has been an improvement in the last four as they’ve won one and drawn three. Out of the 19 home matches in the Championship, Huddersfield have managed eight wins, which translates to 42% winning rate and they’ve registered 29 points from a possible 57.
Rotherham United are seven points away from the safe zone, and have a huge advantage, with four matches in hand on 21st placed Birmingham City as a result of postponements forced by Covid-19 outbreaks in their camp. Should they use their matches in hand well, Rotherham will definitely rise off the drop zone. That hasn’t been the case though in their recent matches; the team has eight losses in the last 10 matches and failed to score in six of the 10 games. In 15 league matches, they have three clean sheets and heading here they were beaten 3-0 by bottom placed Wycombe Wanderers. That was their third loss in five Championship matches and they’ve failed to score in seven of 15 away matches in the league, while keeping just three clean sheets in the 15 games. It hasn’t generally been great for Rotherham away from home in the league, winning only six of their 18 matches. They’ve secured 20 points from the available 54 in the 18 away matches.

Conclusion Huddersfield Town - Rotherham
Before their humiliating loss to Norwich, Huddersfield seemed to be well on track, unbeaten in five matches. Here they’ll be looking to get back to winning ways and an improvement on their home form will be key. Rotherham are not the best on the road either. Both sides haven’t been scoring a lot of goals and we expect that to continue here. Go for Under 2.5 goals.
