    Swans v Rotherham

    After the shocking performance last week at QPR we look to get back on track at home against Rotherham on Good Friday afternoon.
    Last time we played the Millers up there it was another shock result, where they had two late penalties to clinch the 3 points after going eight games without a win.
    We have been so inconsistent this season with such a young team and one hopes that we can end the season with a flourish and finish higher up the table.
    Latest news is that Celina is out with illness, but long term injured Fer is back in training.

    Rotherham are two points adrift from safety in the third from bottom relegation position, with four games to play.
    Today they will be desperate to get points and are a big and aggressive side, traits that we do not handle very well.
    They will have been working on their set pieces all week, knowing this is our Achilles heel with a weak goalkeeper.
    In our favour is that contrary to our away form, which is dire, our home form is excellent, and matches that of top of the table Norwich.
    With only a few matches left of the season, and all chance of the play-offs gone, it’s time to relax and enjoy our football.

    Great match for the neutral but a nervous one for both sets of fans.
    As expected Rotherham bombarded us with high balls from throw ins, corners and free kicks and went in at half time 1-2 up.
    Second half and it was end to end stuff coupled with a baffling 8 mins injury time and the score was 4-3.
    A brace from McBurnie, McKay with a goal and having his best game for us, and Byers wrapped it up.
    Rotherham put up a great fight and Nordfelt made some good saves to keep us in it. It could so easily have gone the other way and on that showing Rotherham look to good to go down.

    You had to admire the fighting spirit of Rotherham. A pity we hadnít shown that kind of commitment against Southampton at home last season, where we only had to win that match to stay up.
    Rotherham players were everywhere, hitting us with high balls into the box, even from throw ins. We had to come back twice after trailing and eventually took the lead second half amid claims that Naughton had deflected the ball into the net.
    Final score 4-3, a win, but our defending was poor again, maybe a hangover from the 4-0 trouncing at QPR last week.
