Recent respective form guides
Although both sides have suffered a fixture pile up due to the poor weather, Rotherham United remain unbeaten in their last six home games, though five of those have been draws. The goals for column just outweighs the goals against over this period, 7 to 5.
The away form of Darlington is pretty dire, losing every single one of the last six matches played! While The Quakers have hit just 4 goals, 22 have hit the back of the wrong net as they lay at the foot of the division with only a single point on their travels.
