Rotherham vs Blackburn: Match preview

Blackburn’s penultimate match of the 2020/21 season sees them travel to Rotherham on Saturday.

Rotherham suffered a fifth consecutive defeat on Tuesday, losing 1-0 at Brentford. Rotherham begin the weekend in the relegation zone on 39 points, four points from safety. Crucially, however, Rotherham have a game in hand over all the side around them.

Survival is still out of their hands, but with Derby looking likely to drop points between now and the end of the season, Rotherham will still have hope of staying up.

Rotherham have the worst home record in the Championship. The Millers have only picked up five wins and 18 points from 22 matches at the New York Stadium.

Rotherham have lost three consecutive home matches, the most recent of which was a 2-1 defeat to Middlesbrough. Paul Warne’s side have only picked up three points out of a possible 27 at home since early February.

Blackburn thrashed Huddersfield Town 5-2 at Ewood Park last weekend. Adam Armstrong scored a hat-trick, while Ben Brereton and Sam Gallagher also got their names on the scoresheet.

Saturday’s victory leaves Rovers 15th in the table on 53 points – well clear of relegation, but too far behind the playoff spots – making Saturday’s game something of a dead rubber for them.

Blackburn’s away record this season ranks 18th in the league, with six wins and four draws from 22 matches on the road. Blackburn have scored a more-than-respectable 27 goals away from home.

Tony Mowbray’s side have failed to win any of their last four away matches, the most recent of which ended in a 1-0 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday.

Blackburn came from behind to beat Rotherham 2-1 in the reverse fixture at Ewood Park in December. Michael Smith gave the Millers the lead before Harvey Elliott and a 98th-minute Adam Armstrong strike gave Rovers all three points. Blackburn have only lost one of their last 10 matches against Rotherham.

Blackburn’s final match of the campaign is at home to Birmingham City next weekend. Rotherham still have two matches to play after Saturday, away to Luton in midweek and away to Cardiff next weekend, although they may well be relegated by then.


Rotherham team news vs Blackburn

Viktor Johansson will miss Saturday’s game due to concussion protocols, so Jamal Blackman should start in goal for the hosts.

Daniel Barlaser, Matthew Olosunde, and Freddie Ladapo are all pushing for recalls.

Matt Crooks is serving a suspension and will also miss out.

Blackburn team news vs Rotherham

Barry Douglas could return to left-back, although Tony Mowbray is unlikely to make too many changes from last week.

Daniel Ayala, Scott Wharton, Bradley Dack, and Joe Rankin-Costello are all still injured for Blackburn.
