Should Rotherham United lose on Saturday afternoon and both Blackburn Rovers and Nottingham Forest win, then it is game over for the Millers as far as their Championship status is concerned. With eight games remaining after this weekend’s round of fixtures they would become the first team to be relegated this season amongst the top four English divisions and in all honesty it can’t come quickly enough for the fans.
Rotherham United have been propping up the rest of the Championship since very early in the season and they have resigned themselves to the drop for many long months now. With just four wins to their name since the start of the campaign, the writing has long been on the wall and it would be merciful were they to be condemned over the next couple of weeks at the very latest.
They will surely take a step further towards the inevitable drop this weekend when they travel down to Loftus Road for a clash with Queens Park Rangers. Ian Holloway’s men look set to finish the season in a comfortable mid-table position following what has been a thoroughly indifferent campaign so far, however they should make progress towards the top half of the table by enjoying an easy victory a Millers side which have only managed a solitary point from their last eleven Championship outings.
Indeed the South Yorkshire outfit have slipped some fourteen goals in their last five outings with just two scored in reply, therefore we envisage a thoroughly one-sided encounter in which Rotherham United will struggle to even score a consolation goal along the way.
