Rotherham vs Norwich City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 14th January, 2016
Kick off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: New York Stadium, Rotherham.
Rotherham United might need a miracle to avoid relegation this season. After 25 matches into the season, they managed just 3 league wins so far. The most alarming stats can be found in the number of matches they lost this season. The figure is 18 from 25 which constitutes 72% of the games they played so far. They are at the foot of the league table with 13 points to their name, deservingly so.
Norwich City, who made an excellent start to their season are now in tatters. They defeated Derby County 3-0 in their last Championship game to only register their third win in the last 13 matches. They are currently 9th in the league table and the chances of an automatic promotion to Premier League can be ruled out. Meanwhile, a 5 point gap with the 6th placed Sheffield Wednesday means that their only hope to achieve promotion is by finishing inside the top 6.
