Fresh off the back of reaching the fifth round of the FA Cup, Leeds United play host to Rotherham United in round 31 of the EFL Championship on Saturday.

Both sides head into the weekend in contrasting form, with Leam Richardson’s visitors yet to taste victory since the turn of the year.

Leeds United continued their quest for a second FA Cup title on Tuesday, when they picked up a 4-1 extra-time victory over Plymouth Argyle in their fourth-round replay.

Daniel Farke’s side have now gone eight straight games without defeat in all competitions, a run which has seen them pick up five wins in their five Championship outings since the turn of the year.

With 60 points from 30 matches, Leeds are currently third in the league standings, one point behind second-placed Southampton, who have a game in hand, in the automatic promotion spot.

Rotherham United, meanwhile, suffered a fresh blow in their battle for survival as they fell to a 2-0 defeat against Southampton at the New York Stadium last time out.

Richardson’s men have now failed to win their last six games across all competitions, claiming three draws and losing three, including a 1-0 FA Cup defeat at the hands of Fulham on January 5.

With 19 points from 29 matches, Rotherham are currently rooted to the bottom of the Championship table, 12 points away from safety.
