Recent respective form guides

Rotherham United's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While The Millers have scored 4, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Watford's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Hornets have hit 6 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Rotherham U. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 42 games have yielded only 28 points. Watford are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 45 points from 42 matches.
