            Rotherham vs Sheff Wed Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Rotherham will be aiming to end their losing streak in the Sky Bet Championship this weekend as they are set to host Sheffield Wednesday at the New York stadium on Saturday afternoon.

            After a dreadful run of results, the hosts currently find themselves at the bottom of the championship table after gaining just 19 points from their 34 league games this campaign. The Millers look destined to be returning to League One as they are currently 16 points away from safety.

            The Millers come into this weekend on the back of a terrible run of form which has seen them record six straight defeats in the league and they are still yet to record a victory in all competitions since the turn of the year.

            In their last outing, Rotherham were defeated by relegation-threatened QPR despite going a goal ahead in the game. Tom Eaves gave the Millers an early lead, but the R's rallied after the break. Paul Smyth equalised from close range before Chris Willock secured the win with a powerful strike late on.

            The away side currently find themselves in 23rd position in the Championship table after they have gained just 32 points from their 34 league games this season. The Owls are much closer to safety and are just three points away from safety.

            Last weekend, Sheffield Wednesday recorded an impressive victory ast they defeated Bristol Rovers 2-1. Ike Ugbo scored a brace for the Owls, with his second goal proving the winner after Jason Knight had equalised for the Robins. Wednesday held on despite a late red card for Di'Shon Bernard.

            The fixture of rotherham vs Sheffield Wednesday has a long and storied history, with the two sides having first met in 1934 in the FA Cup. In total, the two sides have met on 44 occasions, with Sheffield having the better record, winning 22, compared to Rotherham's 15.

            Sheffield Wednesday earned a vital 2-0 victory when these sides met in the reverse fixture at Hillsborough. Michael Smith, returning to face his former club, emerged as the hero with a first-half brace. The striker capitalised on a Rotherham turnover early on, before doubling the lead just before the break. Despite creating chances, the Millers couldn't find a way back, handing Wednesday their first win of the season.

            It is Sheffield Wednesday who are heavily favoured at the bookies ahead of this weekend’s clash and they are currently priced @ 6/5, whilst a rare home win for rotherham is priced @ 12/5 and a draw is @ 9/4.

            We are backing Ike Ugpo to score and Sheffield to win because they come into this game in much better form than the hosts. Ugbo will be full of confidence this weekend after he bagged a brace in the Owls last league game.
