Rotherham vs Cardiff – After losing to Preston North End by a score of 1-2 in the Championship the last time out, Rotherham United will be hoping for a better outcome today.

Rotherham United controlled 46% of the ball during that game and attempted 6 goals, scoring one of them. Hakeem Odoffin (35′) was the lone player for Rotherham United to register a goal.

Three of the seven attempts on goal that Preston North End took were on goal. Ched Evans and Tom Cannon both struck for Preston North End in the second half.

Rotherham United hasn’t recently displayed defensive toughness all that frequently. They will be concerned that Rotherham United’s defense has been penetrated in 6 of their previous 6 matches, resulting in 9 goals being scored.

Before this encounter, Rotherham United had played six league games without triumphing over Cardiff City. Cardiff City will be hoping for a better outcome here after being beaten by West Bromwich Albion in their most recent Championship match.

Cardiff City had 49% of the game’s possession and 6 attempts on goal, but none of them were successful. West Bromwich Albion made one goal-scoring effort, and it was successful. West Bromwich Albion struck in the 17th minute through Daryl Dike.

A comparatively small number of goals have been scored between Cardiff City and rival teams in 5 of the previous 6 matches involving them.

The overall average of goals tallied per game during that stretch is a pitiful 2.17, with The Bluebirds’ average goals being 1. Of course, such a trend might not continue into the following game.

Looking at their prior outcomes, Cardiff City has never lost to Rotherham United when playing them away from home in league games. In their previous two league games, they have failed to pick up a victory away from home.
