The Tractor Boys currently occupy fourth position in the Championship standings, while the visitors are cut adrift at the bottom of the table.

With Ipswich having struggled for wins either side of the turn of the year and losing to non-league Maidstone United in the FA Cup, Kieran McKenna may have started to have doubts about his squad.

However, Ipswich deserve credit for the way in which they have bounced back to posting just one win in nine league matches, their last-gasp equaliser against West Bromwich Albion seemingly acting as the catalyst.

In back-to-back away matches against Millwall and Swansea City, McKenna’s side have scored six goals in claiming 4-0 and 2-1 victories respectively.

Closing the 12-point gap to league leaders Leicester City remains Ipswich’s goal, although moving level on points with second-placed Leeds United is the initial target for Tuesday.

On the other hand, it already feels like Rotherham are fighting a lost cause having failed to win any of their last eight matches in the Championship.

Although there have been improvements in recent defeats to Hull City and Watford, Rotherham have lost four times in succession and may need to win at least nine of their remaining 14 matches to have any chance of survival.

That appears unlikely as Leam Richardson’s side have not prevailed since beating Middlesbrough on Boxing Day, but the Millers may relish the chance to play with the pressure all on their hosts on Tuesday.

Ipswich Town vs. Rotherham United Head to head

In the 20 previous meetings between these two teams, Ipswich have claimed eight victories while Rotherham have won 10, and they have drawn in two. Rotherham have scored 27 goals and conceded 29 in the process.

Rotherham United Team News

Richardson is likely to make alterations to his Rotherham side, with Jordan Hugill and Tom Eaves both pushing for starts in attack.

At least one of Sam Clucas and Cafu may freshen up the midfield, but the likes of Cohen Bramall and Daniel Ayala remain on the sidelines.
