Rotherham – Middlesbrough Match Preview
- Despite conceding 14 fewer goals at this stage than during their last relegation campaign, Rotherham United worryingly sit level on points with that 2018/19 season. However thanks to results elsewhere, they remain the masters of their own destiny despite two defeats ‘to nil’ from three games last week (W1).
- Hapless Rotherham have failed to score in three of their last four home league games (W1, L3), and have conceded the opener in their last eight here. Damningly, the ‘Millers’ are often caught ‘milling around’, and as such have conceded first in a league-high 15 Championship home matches, whilst recovering just five of a possible 45 points when doing so (W1, D2, L12).
- Middlesbrough’s attention is firmly set on next season as their campaign has faded into obscurity with a five-game winless run (D1, L4) and two straight defeats – they will now look to pick up points having last lost three consecutive league games over a year ago. However that could be tough, as Middlesbrough have conceded first in five consecutive games, and trailed at HT in four.
- Much like Rotherham at home, Middlesbrough often start slowly in their away league outings but have picked up more points than all but two sides when conceding first on the road (W3, L9). Their last such comeback victory came in their previous away game vs promoted opposition, but Middlesbrough have conceded first and lost four straight trips since then.
- Players to watch: Rotherham have failed to score in two games since top-scorer Michael Smith’s last gasp strike in their previous victory – he also scored a second-half goal in the reverse fixture. Meanwhile, Yannick Bolasie scored his first two goals for Middlesbrough across his last three appearances, they were Boro’s only goals during that period.
- Hot stat: Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock has lost just one of his last ten personal H2Hs with Rotherham (W5, D4, L1) – four victories came ‘to nil’.
