Two different players namely Oli McBurnie and Sander Berge entered their names on the scoresheet in that game. Moreover, the team managed by Paul Heckingbottom registered five shots on target as well.
It is worth noting that Sheffield’s defense have been breached only five times in the last eight games.
Rotherham are currently at the thirteenth position in the league. The Millers managed to draw against Watford in their most recent game.
It was Richard Wood who scored the opening goal with 120 seconds of the game. However, Vakoun Bayo scored the equalizer at the half-hour mark.
Moreover, Richard Wood has scored three goals in his last two appearances for the club.
Hence goals can be expected from the number 6 in this upcoming fixture.
