Rotherham News and Form
Rotherham took a 4-3 hit at Swansea on Friday despite leading 2-1 at half time. How badly they needed to hang on to that, but they just couldn’t. That is four defeats in their last six league games now, home and away, for Rotherham. Their home form is W7 D8 L6 this season and they have gone W2 D2 L2 in their last six. What will give them confidence here is that they have only lost one home game this season against any side currently in the bottom half of the table. So there any positives for the Millers.
They have scored at an average of 1.4 goals per home game this season. 67% of their home games have made it over 2.5 goals and part of that is because they have taken a clean sheet in just 19% of home fixtures. All seven of the home wins that they have recorded this season have been by a one-goal margin. They have no clean sheet in their last fifteen league home games but are on a nine-match scoring streak at home. So this could be entertaining. Each to their last five at home have gone over 2.5 goals.

Birmingham News and Form
Birmingham are unbeaten in their last four league games, drawing their last three in a row. This run of positive form came after a five-match losing streak that they were on. In their last away game, they only managed a disappointing 1-1 draw at bottom side Ipswich. That leaves them with just the one point from their last four away games now. They have scored in just two of their last four away games. In total this season, Brigham have earned a W6 D7 L8 record on their travels in the league. Seven of those eight defeats have been against sides currently in the top half of the table.
Birmingham have scored 30 away goals this season which is an average of 1.4 per game. They have conceded at almost 1.6 per away game though. In total, they have only managed a clean sheet in 19% of road games. Of the goals which they have scored on the road, 60% of them have come in the first half of matches, while they have conceded 64% of their away goals in the second period of games. They are currently without a clean sheet in any of their last nine on the road in the Championship. That is just three points in their last nine games now, a pretty poor return from them.
