Recent respective form guides

Cardiff City's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Bluebirds have scored 6, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Rotherham U.'s away form is none too clever either, with 3 victories and just 1 loss from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 8 goals for the Merry Millers, and 6 goals against.

Cardiff City's 35 points from 26 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position. Rotherham U. find themselves struggling down in 16th position in the league having picked up 33 points from their 26 matches.
