Foot Predictions shows Saturday’s championship clash between Norwich City and Rotherham United, including hunches, preview and possible lineups.
Norwich City hope to further extend their leadership in the championship lead on Saturday when they face difficulties Rotherham United.
The Canaries’ victory over Coventry City on Wednesday, combined with Brentford’s defeat by the Queens Park Rangers, means that they now have a four point lead over the Bees, who are in second place.
Teemu Pukki and Emiliano Buendia grabbed the goals and helped each other in a comfortable 2-0 victory for Norwich at St. Andrew’s.
It was a second victory in five days for Daniel FarkeThe team is back on track after a week of three games without a win.
Farke said he is not interested in how the Norwich teams behave and that his team should simply focus on scoring three points.
They may well have a winning streak, since after receiving Rotherham, they face the worst two – Birmingham City and Wycombe Wanderers.
Only Watford (35) has scored more points at home in the league this season than Norwich (32). The Canaries lost only once on Carrow Road, and that happened in early October against Derby County.
Rotherham proved to be a good choice for Bournemouth’s sixth place on Wednesday and Paul Warne admitted that his team was disappointed that they had not come out with nothing in the 1-0 defeat.
It was the second consecutive defeat for the Millers, who had lost just one of the first six league games in 2021.
For the weekend they go one point and one position above the relegation zone, with at least one game less on all the teams around them.
After winning just one of the first 10 away games in the league this season, Rotherham now have a series of three consecutive away wins.
However, the Millers have won just one of their last 18 games against Norwich and have not won on Carrow Road since 1966.

All news from the teams
Daniel Farke named the same XI starter in Norwich’s two consecutive victories, so there is a good chance that the team will remain unchanged on Saturday.
Jordan Hugill may be back on the team after training this week after a month in seclusion due to a thigh injury.
Rotherham hasn’t changed in the last two games either, but Paul Warne may be tempted to change a few things after losing to Bournemouth.
Freddie Ladapo could join the team to start early, while Ryan Giles it is restraint to take the place of the left-back.
Possible initial line-up for Norwich City:
Krul; Aarons, Hanley, Gibson, Giannoulis; Skipp, McLean; Buendia, Vrancic, Cantwell; Pukki
Possible initial line-up for Rotherham United:
Johansson; Ihiekwe, Wood, Robertson; Harding, Wing, Barlaser, Wiles, Giles; Crooks, Ladapo
Probability: Norwich City 2-0 Rotherham United
Although Rotherham has improved over the season, Norwich seems to be gaining momentum again and should be classified as a favorite for this match. Particularly with Pukki and Buendia in shape, the Canaries will be difficult to stop and we think they will register a very comfortable victory.
