Rotherham vs Sheffield Wednesday
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 16th February 2019
Kick-off at 13.00 UK/ 14.00 CET
Venue: Aesseal New York Stadium (Rotherham).

The Owls are doing well enough to maintain their position in the mid-table, as they only lost a single match in the last 5.

Steve Bruce’s tactic has been not that productive, as they lost 11 games this season. The absence of good defenders and errors made in the defensive half has cost this season, as they conceded 1.5 goals per game. They are pretty good at attacking third and finishing their chances.

On the other hand, the Millers are struggling to find their feet in EFL Championship. They are still pretty much in the relegation battle, as they sit just outside the bottom three.

Paul Warne has been criticized for his tactics and style of play, as they lost 14 matches this season. The defense has been shaky throughout the season, as they conceded mammoth 51 goals in this season.
