He will go to win. Would be madness to set up not to lose.

Keep it tight and hit them on the break.

Hope QPR do us a favour and beat them on Tuesday. If they do a point is decent on Thursday but if Rotherham win on Tuesday we need to beat them on Thursday.

Win and we overtake Derby and Birmingham as well as potentially Huddersfield if they lose on Tuesday

If we don’t concede in the first few minutes or make silly errors, I think we will get at least a point.

The issue is not Rotherham, and who will they play/rest on Tues.

The real issue is the (a) bit.

We have been pathetic away all season.

Breakdown of 2 wins:

Wycombe - bottom of the league & we were on the rack until Kelly's fine goal. Then, from his injury, we benefitted from him poaching in the box. Becomes 2-1 & should have been 2-2 at the end.

Millwall - were in total disarray in that game post covid shut down. And in the end, after missing chances, were gifted a pen & were going for an equaliser.

How will this change? How can this change?

No idea, sadly.

It's much more of a must win for Rotherham. I think that will suit us, because they are clearly not a good side.

I feel pretty confident we can get a win there.

Our away form is shocking

Exactly.

They are poor at home. They have to win. The game suits us in many ways. Them having the extra game could be massive.
What I’ve seen of them recently says we play the same setup as the reverse fixture we’ll get goals. They’re as calamitous at the back as we are

Our away form has been awful this season which isn’t a good thing going into the biggest game of the season. Frankly, if we win this game, we all but secure our Championship status next season.

We just can’t afford to lose this game.

They haven't scored a single goal in their last 3 games and have a terrible home record. Where does that confidence come from that they will win against a very decent QPR side?

🤷🏼‍♂️
also we have the worst record away from home in the league

Assuming 48 points is the target, we need 6 points from 6 games. Rotherham will need 12 points from 9 games to better our total on goal average.
