When is the earliest Rotherham’s relegation fate could be decided?

Rotherham have endured a simply horrific season but at least the end is nigh.

After their ninth loss in 10 games on Tuesday – a 2-0 defeat to Brighton – they are now 19 points from safety with 10 games to play.

Those fans that are counting down the days until relegation will be pleased to know that, albeit with an unlikely set of results, the Millers’ relegation fate could be decided in just 10 days.

 

If Rotherham lose their next two away games at Wolves and QPR then there is a chance that their drop to League One will be confirmed.

For that to happen though, Wolves and Blackburn, who have a game in hand, will have to win their three games, Burton will need to win both of theirs and Nottingham Forest will have to win once.

Those sequences of results would leave the Millers still on 17 points, 26 behind Forest, who would be fourth from bottom, on 43 with only 24 to play for.

 

It is a stretch to think that all those results would come in, which means realistically it could be two or three games later where the Millers are condemned.

And going by how this season has gone, what’s the money being on it on April 4 when Sheffield Wednesday are the visitors to New York Stadium for a game that is on live television.
