Huddersfield Town face a crunch clash towards the bottom of the Sky Bet Championship. The Millers are the visitors to West Yorkshire, 22nd in the league, with three games in hand over the Terriers. Huddersfield will be looking to bounce back after their crushing defeat away at Carrow Road, seven goals causing pain to the Town faithful. Plenty of character will need to be shown in this one if the West Yorkshire outfit are to pick up any points against a Rotherham United side who will be fighting for their lives. 

Before this loss, Town had picked up seven points out of 15 in their last five games. This good form has taken them away from the relegation zone, but they will be looking to build on that recent form as they look to another season in the second division. Currently the Terriers hold an eight point advantage over opponents Rotherham. 

Rotherham will be looking to net safety as soon as possible themselves. Having suffered a 3-0 defeat at home in their last outing against Wycombe Wanderers, they will be looking for a positive reaction in their survival bid. Making the worst possible start on Monday, the Millers conceded early and just weren't able to stamp their authority on the game, conceding at pivotal moments in the contest. 

Below is all you need to know ahead of the Sky Bet Championship contest at the John Smith's Stadium.

  • What team will Carlos Corberan go for this time around after their demoralising loss?

Fraizer Campbell may be recalled to the starting lineup in what is likely to be one of a number of changes. Ryan Schofield will replace Joel Pereira in goal if he has recovered from the illness which kept him out of Tuesdays game, while Ramari Edmonds-Green could get the nod over Richard Stearman. 

For Rotherham, Richard Wood returns from suspension, with boss Paul Warne almost certainly reverting back to a 3-5-2 formation. Wes Harding is in line to feature at right wing back although he faces competition from from Matthew Olosunde who has recovered from a hamstring injury. Wolverhampton Wanderers loanee Ryan Giles could also return on the opposite flank.
