            Rotherham United vs Coventry City Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Coventry City are into 11th and in the top half of the table once again after a midweek win over Millwall with the club set to head on the road to the AESSEAL New York Stadium where Rotherham United remain just above the relegation zone.

            It's been a tough season for Rotherham back in the Championship. At one stage, the club were slumped into the bottom three but they do now come into this game in 20th after getting out of the danger zone, only to drop down the table once more. The club met with Reading in midweek and lost 2-1 after Lee Peltier gave his side the lead away from home and lost the game in the 90th minute. Just prior to this, they drew 0-0 with Sheffield United and Blackpool to make them winless in February.

            Matt Taylor's men are above Cardiff City just below them in the table by one point and they also have a game in hand to deal with. Taylor's side are also above the bottom three by three points, although they have won the same amount of games as Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City. Worse yet, the club have let in 42 goals already, and only Reading, Queens Park Rangers and those in the bottom three have conceded more.

            A win here for Rotherham will keep them in 20th, regardless of what happens around them, as Stoke City just above them in 19th are four clear. The main aim for the Millers is to improve on their 12 draws and 12 losses this season and simply continue to build away from the relegation zone.

            As for Coventry, they got a fantastic 1-0 win over promotion hopefuls Millwall in midweek, as Viktor Gyökeres returned to the scoresheet with his first goal in four games to now make it 14 in 32 for him and four assists as well. It equals to a goal every 0.46 minutes so far for Viktor Gyökeres, and no player in the bottom 14 has scored more goals than him in the Championship this season.

            A 1-1 draw with Luton Town last weekend also means a record of 33 goals scored and 33 let in from the 31 games so far, and the club head into this game in the top half only on goals difference. In fact, unless they can win and overturn a goals difference deficit of seven over West Brom and Norwich City, the club will stay in 11th or move lower in the table.
