If Matt Taylor was under any illusions about the size of the task that faces him as Rotherham manager he will have seen it in their comprehensive 3-0 loss to Blackburn last time out. For a club that goes up from League 1 and (mostly) straight back down to the Championship staying up is the sole aim.
At home, the Millers are winless in two but generally are doing well losing just one of seven in front of their own fans this season. Richard Wood enjoys home comforts having grabbed four goals at this ground already in this campaign.
Huddersfield are also under relatively new management with Mark Fotheringham the man in the dugout after a spell as a coach at Hertha Berlin. A 2-0 victory over Hull last time out was huge and the four points from their last two has allowed them to climb four points away from Coventry at the bottom of the table.
Away from home, the Terriers have been poor playing five and losing four although they did pick up a point in a 3-3 draw with Luton in their last road game. All six goals that Town have grabbed on their travels this season have come from six different players.

Rotherham vs Huddersfield Match Stats
This is an important game for both sides at the bottom as they try get things underway a new manager. Add to the mix that this is a Yorkshire derby and we could be in for a competitive fixture. Both teams are under relatively new bosses so over 3.5 cards appeals.
Duane Holmes played behind the front two for Huddersfield last weekend and he goes off a generous 6/1 to get a goal at any point in this fixture. The midfielder is still scoreless for the season but if he is allowed to get forward as he is in this 3-4-2-1 then that goal will come. He grabbed five in 2021/22 so he does know where the net is and is worth siding with here.

27 September 2016- Huddersfield 2-1 Rotherham-Championship
The last two meetings between these sides have finished all-square but if you go back over the last seven you will find the Millers winless. Huddersfield are something of a bogey team for Rotherham as they have failed to defeat them in their last ten home clashes with them.
