Rotherham picked up a useful point on the road last time out as they drew 1-1 with Watford at Vicarage Road. This added to the three points claimed in the game before where they defeated Blackburn 4-0 has moved them to 20th and five points from the relegation spits.

Matt Taylor has found a 4-3-3 formation that seems to be bringing the best out of his team and one player who is enjoying this system is Shane Ferguson. It is two goals in two games for the Northern Irishman.

Sheffield United are going strong in their bid to get back to the Premier League and they sit second with 12 points between them and Middlesbrough in third. They are flying having taken 16 points from the last 18 on offer.

Five of the last six Championship matches the Blades have been involved in have seen both teams net with United winning four of those. John Eagan likes a road-trip grabbing two in his last three.

Rotherham vs Sheffield United Match Stats

Rotherham now have netted five goals in their last two Championship fixtures and will fancy their chances of netting here. Sheffield United have seen both teams score in five of their last six and all three if just looking at away games. They were involved in a classic 3-3 draw with Wrexham in the FA Cup and both teams to net appeals here.

United do have the best defensive record in the division but they have conceded at least once in their last three on the road. Shane Ferguson has two in two and as such looks value to net here at prices close to double figures.
