Swansea travels to Rotherham looking at the playoff spots just a few points ahead.
Rotherham United hardly stays above the relegation zone. They have a just 2 points cushion over 22nd place and with their current form they may slip into it. The team has a respectable defense but their strike force looks to be on the other end. They have scored less than a goal per game on average which is not nearly enough for a league like EFL Championship.
Rotherham drew level last game in their visit to Preston. They were behind at half time but a goal in the opening minutes of the second half helped them to get the point. Preston looked to be the more active side but The Millers managed to keep hold of their point.
Swansea like their opponents are also having a good and organized defensive line. They have the second best defensive record in the league. The team though hasproblems when it comes down to scoring. 17 goals in 15 games so far is not enough for their level of ambition. This has cause the team too many draws this season losing many points.
Swansea recorded a second victory in a row last week. McBurnie scored 1 goal in each half giving them a clean victory over Reading. The Swans were the active side and could have scored more goals. They limited Reading mostly to long range efforts which proved to be successful.
