Rotherham are badly out of form going seven without a victory in all competitions losing five of these. One of these defeats was a 4-1 loss to Ipswich in the FA Cup last weekend while it is just two points from their last six in the league.

At home, the Millers put a three game losing streak behind them last time out with a 2-2 draw against Stoke but are still without a win in four here. They need to find a way to tighten up at the back having leaked 11 in their last four in front of theiur own fans.

Blackburn booked their place in the next round of the FA Cup with a 1-0 road victory against Norwich at Carrow Road. It is four defeats in the last six in the Championship for Rovers who did beat Cardiff last time in the league.

Away from Ewood Park, the Lancashire outfit have struggled losing six of their last nine in the league. They do not draw many games with it being April 9th the last time they drew a fixtue.

Rotherham vs Blackburn match stats

These sides are separated by 18 points in the league with the hosts in 21st and the visitors in third. They could be two divisions apart next season and the gulf in class means Rovers look value. Backing a road victory looks the value play here.

Rotherham will certainly be made to work hard and in particular.at the back. Wes Harding is a card magnet with seven for the season and three in his last seven. He looks value at 4/1 to be shown a card here.
