With six wins and six defeats so far this season, it’s been an up and down season for Rovers so far who nonetheless sit just outside the play-off places and level on points with Swansea, despite suffering a 1-0 defeat away at Cardiff on Tuesday night.
The last nine matches have alternated between wins and losses so if things go to form, this should be three points won for Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side but he will be desperate to see his side register some form of consistency across the coming weeks before the World Cup. The good news for them is that they enjoy playing at home, averaging 1.5 goals for, and one goal again per game.
Things have got off to a sticky start for Rotherham since the departure of Paul Warne to Derby, with the Millers picking up a point from Wednesday’s meeting with Millwall after defeat to Wigan last week immediately after the international break.
Matt Taylor, formerly of Exeter, has been confirmed as the new manager to hopefully provide a boost and make sure a promising start to the season doesn’t go unrewarded but with an unfavourable record away from home the season could soon take on a different outlook. The good news for the Millers is that the trip to Blackburn is followed by a run of four or five games that should be seen as winnable.
