Recent respective form guides

Chester City need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Blues have scored 5, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Rotherham's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. Only 4 goals have been registered in this time, with 6 leaked at the wrong end.

Chester City are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 27 points from 36 matches. The Millers find themselves down in 18th position in the league having picked up 34 points from their 31 matches.
