Rotherham vs Huddersfield (Pick, Prediction, Preview) Preview

In the English Championship on Tuesday, Rotherham United will welcome the guests of Huddersfield Town to the German-American coach David Wagner. He has a great team this season with his team and the biggest thing would be the promotion to the Premier League. This is not as absurd as on the other hand the descent of the householders.


Rotherham United stumbling over the league with big steps. The club stands on the last place and has fourteen points behind the rescue. In addition, Rotherham is the weakest attack with only 28 goals and with 65 opponents by far the worst defense. Nottingham Forest have been conceded with “only” 53 by the closest opponents. On the weekend the club could have set a sign again, but as it is often when you are down there, an own goal four minutes before the end prevented the first victory since mid-January. In the end, Rotherham separated from Blackburn Rovers with a 1-1 draw. Still, it was a bit of a glimmer of light, as the four championship games before had lost all of Rotherham to zero. Particularly frightening is the home game, because of sixteen away matches, Rotherham lost fifteen! Only once did the club win a point. On the other hand, the home game can only look better, even if only four home wins, four draws and already seven home defeats are worth a descent. After all, the team was able to improve slightly on home lawns. In the last six home games in the championship, Rotherham had three wins, a draw and two defeats. Already in the last season Rotherham occupied the first non-descent place in the final account, then at the end, however, nine points ahead of the descent.


Also Huddersfield had a long time in the pre-season to the class preservation, until a man took the helm at the club: David Wagner. The former coach of Borussia Dortmund II and good friend of Jürgen Klopp pulled the team after his takeover from the descent and saved the club at the end with eleven points ahead of the descent. This season the team is even stronger. For from the descendants of the preseason has become a serious ascendancy aspirant. Huddersfield is currently in third place. The right in the end only for the playoffs, but the places one and two are also not uninholt far away. Leaders Newcastle has seven, Brighton on rank two six points more – and still have these three teams sixteen games to complete. Recently, Huddersfield showed himself in very good shape and won the last four Championship games. Among them was a 3-1 home victory against Brighton. Very interesting is the goal ratio of 39:33 and thus only plus six. For a table ending, this is rather little. To compare: The Goal Difference from Newcastle is 58:23 – plus 35, and the one from Brighton 51:25 – plus 26 away. Huddersfield is not as strong at home as on home ground, but the 7-2-6 away standings can be quite good To see. Five of the last six mandatory games on the opponent’s place – four in the league, one in the FA Cup – has won Huddersfield. If you think that Huddersfield has won only three of the first ten away matches in the Championship, then you can imagine what a good team the team currently is. With Hefele, Kachunga, Löwe, Schindler, and since Quaner, there are five Germans in the squad of David Wagner alone.
