      Rotherham vs. Leeds Prediction, Tips & Stats

      Leeds United are looking to keep the pressure on the EFL Championship's top two sides as they face Rotherham United on Friday night.

      Rotherham United currently sit 22nd in the EFL Championship with two wins, five draws and nine losses from sixteen games so far this season.

      Not unexpectedly, The Millers have been struggling in the early months of the campaign and look every bit the relegation contender many expected them to be coming into this season.

      They're entering this game amidst a typically poor run of form having failed to win any of their last four games with two draws and two defeats in that period.

      Their most recent outing saw them fall to a resounding 5-0 battering at the hands of Watford in what was a sorry performance from Matt Taylor's side. The Millers suffering away from home is not a novel phenomenon in this division but it was hoped that they would turn a corner in that regard this season after staying up solely by virtue of strong home form last time out but the early evidence suggests there is little progression in that endeavour.

      As of now, their home form has not been strong enough to justify such a meagre output away from home as they come into this one having won just one of their last five games on their own patch.

      They are still much stronger at the New York Stadium, though, given they've also lost only one of their last five on home soil so they'll have to hope they can lean into what counts as their only advantage here as they seek to pull off what would be a fairly shock result.

      Leeds United currently sit 3rd in the EFL Championship with nine wins, four draws and three losses from sixteen games this season.

      After a somewhat slow start to proceedings, Leeds are beginning to assert themselves as one of the league's heavy hitters as they seek to close the gap on Leicester City and Ipswich Town above them.

      Daniel Farke's side are beginning to look settled as a group and they're coming into this game in the form of a side with promotion back to the Premier League firmly on the agenda having won six of their last seven games.

      Most recently, Leeds ran out 2-1 winners over Plymouth Argyle with goals from Dan James and Joël Piroe sealing a handy three points that confirmed their third straight win.

      They've been pretty hit-and-miss away from home of late having won just two of their last five games on the road but given their last trip outside of Leeds resulted in a 1-0 win over league leaders Leicester there's no reason they should feel intimidated by a trip down to the road to Rotherham.

      Leeds are on fire and come into this one as firm favourites; given the shape the two sides are currently in you'd be hard-pressed to back against Daniel Farke's side.

      For our Rotherham vs. Leeds prediction, we're going for a 2-0 win for the away side.

      Rotherham Team News

      Sam Clucas came off in the first half of the loss at Watford with injury and is a major doubt for this one, so Cafú should fill that spot should Clucas be deemed unfit.

      Expect some changes in defence for this one with Daniel Ayala and Hakeem Odoffin pushing to come into the starting lineup.

      Leeds Team News

      Pascal Struijk is set for a spell on the sidelines following a hernia operation so Liam Cooper will likely continue to partner Joe Rodon at the heart of the defence.

      Died Spence is close to a return from a long-term hamstring injury and could make the match day squad for this one, but either way Archie Gray should retain his spot at right-back.

      Daniel Farke seems fairly settled on his best XI now which means no place in the XI for Wilfried Gnonto with Dan James preferred on the opposite flank to Crysencio Summerville, while Glen Tamara should once again feature alongside Ethan Ampadu.
