Rotherham United continue their attempt to climb off the foot of the EFL Championship table as they take on Stoke City this weekend.
Rotherham United currently sit 24th in the EFL Championship with three wins, nine draws and fourteen losses from twenty-six games this season.
The Millers had hoped for another season of survival in the Championship this season but things aren't looking promising as they enter this game seven points shy of safety.
They have, though, picked up some solid results in recent weeks having taken five points from their last three games in the league, the most recent of which was a 2-2 draw away at Blackburn Rovers.
They were somewhat fortunate to come away from Ewood Park with a point having largely been let off by Blackburn's woeful finishing, in addition to Blackburn gifting them two pretty easy goals through awful defending, but the goals from Sean Morrison and Tom Eaves sent them home with a commendable point.
Their form at home has been nowhere near as strong as last season and they're coming into this game having won one, drawn two and lost two of their last five games on home soil.
Rotherham have a long way to go if they're to climb out of the relegation zone and if they want that to continue to be a realistic goal then games like this are simply must-win for the Millers.
Stoke City currently sit 19th in the EFL Championship with seven wins, eight draws and eleven losses from twenty-six games this season.
The Potters have been one of the league's most underwhelming sides this campaign and they come into this one fighting to turn things around under new manager Steven Schumacher.
They've won one and drawn three of Schumacher's four league games in charge which isn't bad, but also isn't impressive given the win came against a poor Birmingham City side and two of the draws came in winnable games.
Their latest outing saw them fall to a 2-4 defeat at home to Premier League Brighton & Hove Albion in a game where they were ultimately outclassed despite delivering a spirited performance.
They've won only once away from home in their last six games but given the quality of the side they're facing here you would have to suggest this is an ideal time to find a much-needed win.
The Potters have won both of their last two head-to-head meetings with Rotherham, including a 6-1 win in the League Cup this season, and they'll fancy themselves to register another here.
For our Rotherham vs. Stoke prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the away side.
