- Norwich are unbeaten in their last 11 home games in all competitions
- Rotherham have lost eight Championship matches in a row
- Recommended bet:
Norwich to win and over 3.5 goals

Norwich have a perfect chance to boost their play-off hopes when they welcome rock-bottom Rotherham to Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon.

The Canaries suffered a 3-1 defeat at Middlesbrough on Wednesday, ending a six-game unbeaten streak and leaving the club outside of the top six by two points.

In need of a quick response, Norwich play host to League One-bound Rotherham, who have not tasted success since Boxing Day and find themselves 19 points from safety at the foot of the table.

Team news

Norwich are set to be without the suspended Borja Sainz for the next four matches, if the club's appeal against the red card he picked up in the defeat to Middlesbrough on Wednesday fails.

Grant Hanley was forced off with an Achilles injury at the Riverside and he looks set for a spell on the sidelines, joining Onel Hernandez, Jon Rowe and Shane Duffy in the treatment room.

Rotherham's injury list remains a length one, with Sean Morrison, Daniel Ayala, Cohen Bramall, Grant Hall, Andre Green and Tyler Blackett still out of action.

The stats

Norwich are on an 11-game unbeaten run at Carrow Road, winning their last five outings on home turf.

The Canaries have collected 38 points at home, leaving them behind just Leeds (46), Ipswich (43), Leicester (40) and West Brom (39).

Rotherham have lost their last eight matches and have not picked up a win since beating Middlesbrough 1-0 on Boxing Day.

The Millers are yet to taste success on the road this season, losing 16 and drawing four, with their tally of four away points the worst record in the Championship.

Rotherham have conceded 72 goals in the Championship, the worst record in the division.


Rotherham are likely already planning for life in League One as they sit 19 points from safety with just 10 matches left to play, and Norwich can put another nail in the Millers' relegation coffin.

The Canaries will be eager to bounce back from the midweek loss to Boro, who made the most of having a man advantage in that contest, and they could stick a few past an opponent that have conceded a league-high 72 goals.

Norwich have scored 61 times in the league, only the top four in the standings have netted more, while the Millers have conceded 14 goals across their last four away assignments.
