Huddersfield Town will be aiming to recover from a humiliating loss when they host Rotherham United at the John Smith's Stadium in the Championship on Saturday.

The Terriers were crushed 7-0 by promotion favorites Norwich City in midweek with Teemu Pukki netting a hat-trick.

It was their heaviest defeat in 34 years as the fans were left absolutely furious at their disastrous performance.

The West Yorkshire outfit are now languishing in 19th position with 43 points from 36 games, just eight clear of the relegation zone now.

Rotherham are battling relegation at the moment but have three games in hand over their city rivals and a victory in the upcoming derby would bring them closer to safety.


Huddersfield Town vs Rotherham United Head-To-Head

There have been 57 Yorkshire derbies between the sides, with Huddersfield claiming the spoils on 29 occasions and losing to Rotherham only 11 times.

However, they played out a 1-1 draw in South Yorkshire back in October.

Rotherham are looking to climb their way into safety too, and with a few games in hand, are unlikely to squander their chances.
