Huddersfield vs Rotherham
Date: Saturday, 10 April 2021
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield.
Neither Huddersfield nor Rotherham particularly enjoyed Easter holidays as both teams suffered horrendous defeats in the previous round.
The Terriers shipped as many as five first-half goals in a demolishing 7-0 defeat to leaders Norwich City, while the Millers surprisingly fell 0-3 at home to the rock-bottomed Wycombe Wanderers.
The loss to the last-placed team has made Rotherham’s situation significantly more complicated in the battle for avoiding the drop to League One football.
The Millers are now seven points shy of the safe zone. They still have four games in hand on most of the rivals down in the table, three on Saturday’s rivals Huddersfield Town.
The Terriers are also in danger, sitting just eight points above the Millers. A potential defeat here would be catastrophic for Carlos Corberan and his team.
Huddersfield vs Rotherham Head-to-head
- Huddersfield Town will rely on the head to head tradition here. They have a fantastic record with 12 wins, 5 draws, and just 1 loss in 8 clashes against the Millers.
- The two sides shared spoils in a 1-1 draw when they met each other in the first half of the season in South Yorkshire.
- Each of the last five head to head encounters has seen goals scored at both ends.
Huddersfield vs Rotherham Prediction
This match has a massive importance for both outfits. It will be very interesting to see how they are going to react after the aforementioned disasters in the previous round. The Terriers can rely on the H2H tradition and the form before the catastrophe against Norwich.
Corberan’s men were unbeaten in five consecutive league games and they have shipped just three goals in the process. Also, the Terriers lost just 6 of 19 league fixtures on the home patch so far in the season.
Rotherham failed to find the back of the net in back-to-back defeats to Millwall and Wycombe Wanderers.
As odd as it sounds after Huddersfield shipped seven goals on Tuesday, the visitors might struggle to break the Terriers down here. Corberan’s troops are unbeaten in four straight home matches and they allowed only one goal in the last two league outings at John Smith’s Stadium, despite playing the likes of Cardiff City and Brentford along the way.
The Under 2.5 goals FT is the best betting option for this match. You can back it at the odds of 1.72. We will also go with the hosts to win at the 2.30 odds.
