Swansea City very nearly fell out of the top six following their loss to Norwich City in their last game.
That was just their second loss of the campaign and now, instead of vying for a top-two spot, they are looking over their shoulders once again.
Rotherham United earned a much-needed win before the international break, as they swept aside Preston North End.
The victory gave them some slight breathing space as they went five points clear of the drop zone, although they will know a loss on Saturday will throw them right back into the mix.

The hosts are to assess star striker Andre Ayew ahead of this one after he came back from international duty with Ghana early due to injury.
Injured: Morgan Gibbs-White
Doubtful: Andre Ayew
Viktor Johansson made a fine debut in between the sticks for Rotherham in their 2-1 win against Preston after Jamal Blackman picked up a knock prior to the game.
However, Paul Warne may well opt to reinstate Blackman as the goalkeeper who takes to the field on Saturday to take on a well-weathered Swansea side.
Meanwhile, winger Kieran Sadlier has been ruled out for three months with an ankle ligament injury.

Swansea City vs Rotherham United Prediction
If Ayew is ruled out of this one, he will be a big miss for Swansea. It will also give Rotherham a boost and offer them hope that they may claim back-to-back victories.
Despite this, the hosts still have a strong squad and will feel they have enough to get a result. We are expecting this game to end in a draw.
