Struggling Rotherham United host bottom-placed Wycombe Wanderers at the New York Stadium on Monday in the EFL Championship.

With just 10 wins and 35 points from as many games, the Millers are 22nd in the table, but have a few games in hand over Coventry City above them.

Rotherham United gained promotion to the second tier last season and seem to be on their way back down again. However, two away wins from the last four outings has given them some breathing room.

A victory this weekend would bring Rotherham even closer to safety, but for Wycombe, it could spell doom.

Playing in the second division for the first time ever, the Chairboys have endured a torrid campaign on their Championship debut.

With just seven wins all season, they're rock-bottom in the standings, nine points off safety and look destined to head back into League One.


Rotherham United vs Wycombe Wanderers Head-To-Head

There have been 18 previous meetings between the sides. The spoils have been closely shared as Rotherham have won five games against Wycombe and lost seven times.

That includes one this season, with the Millers securing a narrow 1-0 victory in Buckinghamshire back in September.

Rotherham United vs Wycombe Wanderers Prediction

Wycombe will be looking to build on their late win against Blackburn Rovers. But if there's something that has been missing from their game all season, it's consistency.

Rotherham have the chance to climb out of the red zone by making the most of their games in hand. We expect them to do just that, starting with a win on Monday.

Prediction: Rotherham United 2-1 Wycombe Wanderers
