Norwich City host Rotherham United at Carrow Road for Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship fixture (3pm KO).

The opposition

With eight wins, five draws and 15 defeats Rotherham are 21st in the league at the time of writing. They do have two games in hand on the three teams above, however.

Recent form has been mixed for Paul Warne’s side, who followed defeat at Swansea City with wins against Derby County and Preston North End before being beaten by Cardiff City and AFC Bournemouth.

Michael Smith and Matt Crooks are the club’s joint top scorers in the Championship so far this season with seven goals each.

Last time we met, Jordan Hugill’s stoppage time penalty sealed three points for City in dramatic fashion with a 2-1 win at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.
