Swansea News and Form
The Swans are on course for a mid-table finish. They had a rough weekend though losing 4-0 away at QPR. But their home form is bang on point at the moment with a superb five-match winning streak going at the Liberty Stadium. They are unbeaten in their last eight on home soil in the Championship now. That is an eight-match scoring streak at home which they have also put together. So it’s been impressive stuff from them. They have only lost one game this season at home against sides currently 10th or lower in the division. That though was against rock-bottom side Ipswich.
Swansea’s home form is W11 D4 L5 this season and they have averaged 1.75 goals per home fixture. Swansea have scored at least two goals in each of their last four on home soil. Seven of their eleven home wins this term have been by a margin of at least two goals. In total they have taken a clean sheet in 40% of home games, so have been tight at the back. They have conceded an average of 1.1 goals per home game, and have taken a clean sheet in four of their last six on home soil. Of the goals which they have conceded at home, two-thirds of them have been in the first half of matches.

Rotherham News and Form
The Millers collected a point last weekend out at Stoke. Every point counts for them at this point. They have not done bad recently at all as they have lost just two of their last seven out on the road (W1 D4). So they have been digging out points here and there. A win in this one would do their survival hopes the power of good. Rotherham have netted in each of their last three games on the road but they do average under a goal per away game this season in the division. They have conceded an average of 1.9 goals per away game.
There has been a clean sheet for Rotherham in two away matches only this term. The Millers have been trailing at the halftime break in 11 of their 21 away games. They haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last 12 league games, home and away. Of the goals which they have scored away from home, a massive 88% of them have been in the second period of fixtures. Right now it doesn’t matter that only one team have a worse away record in the league than they do. It’s about them raising their game right now on Friday and taking a shot at survival.
