Blackburn vs Rotherham
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 8 October 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 K / 16:00 CET
Venue: Ewood Park

Blackburn play host to guests Rotherham at Ewood Park in this Championship fixture on Saturday.

Rotherham did not need much time to return to the second division as they claimed the second place in the League One campaign last season.

They are on an average stretch of performance this season. From the last 6 league matches, the team has got one win, three draws and two defeats.

The Millers conceded 8 goals so far in this season. However, their form is bit worrying lately.

Meanwhile, Blackburn rather have an inconsistent form in the league currently. A positive outcome is often accompanied by a negative one for them. Such a slump affected their position in the league standings.

As of now, Blackburn sit 7th in the standings with a score of 6 wins and defeats. The team owns an average offense and a disappointing defense this season too.

Going on, Blackburn can uphold their recent head to head recordings against Rotherham for spirits. On top of that they are given the home advantage for this fixture.
