Rotherham United will host Hull City on Saturday to make it three wins in a row under the new management of Matt Taylor, with kickoff at 5 pm.
After six years of making and losing back-to-back promotions and relegations between the Championship and League One.
Rotherham United made a strong start this season, but their long-serving manager Paul Warne left the club in September.
After the recent international break, the Millers appointed Matt Taylor as the new manager. They saw him begin life in South Yorkshire with a 1-1 draw against Millwall at home before seeing his side beaten 3-0 away at Blackburn Rovers.
Last weekend, Taylor won his first game at the New York Stadium as his side beat Huddersfield Town 2-1 thanks to Conor Washington’s and Georgie Kelly’s goals.
Hull City should arrive at St Andrew’s with renewed confidence after returning to winning ways last time.
A run of four straight defeats before the international break left them struggling at the bottom end of the division. The Tigers opted to dismiss manager Shota Arveladze, and interim boss Andy Dawson could not make an immediate impact, with his first day in the hot seat marked by a 2-0 defeat to Luton Town.
Rotherham United vs. Hull City Head to Head

Rotherham United Team News
Matt Taylor could deploy a relatively unchanged starting XI after a victory and a clean sheet away at Stoke. Veteran defender Richard Wood will likely have to settle for a place on the bench after Cameron Humphreys, Grant Hall, and Wes Harding were deployed last time.
Hull City Team News
Hull City manager Andy Dawson may also be tempted to stick with a similar team for Saturday’s trip after a win of their own in midweek. However, top scorer Oscar Estupinan is likely to come back in and lead the line, having netted eight Championship goals so far this season.
Prediction and Odds
Rotherham will be full of confidence with Taylor in charge, and even though Hull’s squad may be stronger on paper, we’re backing the Millers to triumph on home soil this weekend.
