Huddersfield Town form and stats

Overall Championship stats at home this season for Huddersfield Town are 8-5-6 (wins-draw-losses). Three draws from their last three home games means a steady supply of points here at John Smith's Stadium, but a victory now would be sweet for Huddersfield.

No payout for Huddersfield in their previous match, an away game at Norwich City that ended in defeat 0-7. The spoils were shared after 90 minutes before that, a home game that ended 1-1 versus Brentford.

Huddersfield Town were outplayed and humiliated in their previous game, as mentioned in the paragraph above. They will need to reinstall their confidence before this one.

Rotherham United form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team, who have the fewest clean sheets (7) in Championship, on their Championship travels is 6 wins, 2 draws and 10 defeats.

Rotherham are looking to quickly end their 196 minutes long goal drought in the Championship.

Home advantage was not enough for Rotherham in their previous game, as they lost their Championship-match, hosting Wycombe Wanderers, 0-3. It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Millwall wasn't a success with a 0-1 loss.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Rotherham playing away and similar expectations, we found ten relevant matches. Results were seven Rotherham United wins, one draw and two defeats.

A quick return to home after this game, as Rotherham are hosting Queens Park Rangers in the Championship only three days away.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Rotherham as they have only managed to score 17 times from 18 away games in the league. 22 goals have been conceded by Rotherham in these games. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only 2 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.
