Leeds United are making great strides this season to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking. They are third in the Championship standings, 12 points behind leaders Leicester City and one behind second-placed Southampton.

They have won 18 of their 30 league matches this season, losing and drawing six each. They have won six of their last games across competitions, drawing one. The Whites will face Plymouth Argyle away in the FA Cup fourth-round replay on February 6 after their first meeting ended in a 1-1 draw.

They will then take on Rotherham, who are at the rock bottom of the Championship table. The Millers have won just three of their 29 league games this season, losing 16 and drawing three.

They are 24th in the standings and look certain to drop down to League One next season. They are without a win in their last six games across competitions, losing three and drawing three.

Leeds United are certainly the heavy favorites coming into this fixture. Their overall form this season has been stellar and so has been their recent form.

Meanwhile, Rotherham have failed to muster up any sort of a consistent run this season. Moreover, they are missing a number of players ahead of the Leeds clash. Hence, they are likely to face another defeat at Elland Road.

Predicted Score: Leeds United 3-0 Rotherham
