Swansea’s Recent Form
Last Time Out In The Championship
Swansea’s winning run came to an abrupt end in a demoralising 4-0 defeat at QPR. In recent weeks, Swansea have benefited from strong start to games. But at Loftus Road, they found themselves 3-0 down after just 15 minutes. Darnell Furlong opened the scoring from a corner after just 3 minutes, before Tomer Hemed doubles Rangers’ lead 2 minutes later. Hemed grabbed his second of the game on 17 minutes, latching onto Josh Scowen’s low cross to beat Kristoffer Nordfeldt. Swansea could only trouble QPR from long range, and in the second half were once again made to pay for a lackluster performance. After the Swans failed to clear their lines from a corner, midfielder Massimo Luongo buried his volley into the back of the net. Cameron Carter-Vickers hit the bar late on for Swansea, but apart from that, there wasn’t much to cheer for the travelling Swansea fans to cheer for. The defeat leaves Swansea in 13th place in the Championship with 56 points.
Rotherham’s Recent Form
Last Time Out In The Championship
Rotherham aided their relegation fight with a 2 goal comeback to rescue a point at Stoke. The Millers found themselves behind after 27 minutes when Sam Vokes headed in a simple cross at the back post. 2 minutes later and it was 2-0, as Sam Clucas arrived late in the box to finish off a sweeping Stoke move. A loss would have left Rotherham 3 points adrift of safety in the bottom three, but a second half turn around has given them some hope. Lanky striker Michael Smith started the comeback after converting from a corner on 58 minutes. Rotherham’s set pieces continued to undo Stoke’s defence and from a long throw, Matt Crooks completed the turn around after 74 minutes. Rotherham looked like a team fighting for their lives in the second half, but they will need another impressive result this weekend to boost their survival hopes. They still remain in the relegation zone in 22nd place, just 2 points away from Wigan.
