Rotherham United could be relegated this weekend

  • Video report by John Shires

Rotherham United could be relegated to League One this weekend, if results go against them.

The Millers have won just four games all season.

This weekend face QPR in West London - where relegation to the third tier could be confirmed with eight games to go.

The South Yorkshire club will be relegated if:

  • They lose, relegation rivals Blackburn and Nottingham Forest both win, and Burton Albion avoid defeat.

OR

  • Blackburn win, Burton avoid defeat and Forest pick up a point. Rotherham would then only be able to draw level on points with Forest - and go down on goal difference.
