Leeds United look to cut the gap on the top two teams in the Championship rankings this Friday night when they travel to play Rotherham United.

Taking everything into account, Farke is aware that points are important right now as Leeds look to narrow an eight-point deficit to the dominant front two.

Leeds has lost three of their eight games away from Elland Road, demonstrating that they have not always performed well away from home.

After the last game, it was decided to fire Taylor, hence Rotherham’s temporary squad consists of Wayne Carlisle, Scott Brown, and Dan Green.

That was a 5-0 loss to Watford, coming only four days after the Millers held second-place Ipswich to a thrilling 2-2 draw at home.

Instead of giving Taylor more time, a change in strategy was decided upon after he returned with 11 points from 15 games in 2023–24, five of which came in their last five games.

With the international break over, Rotherham would have anticipated a permanent appointment by now, but it doesn’t seem like anything is happening anytime soon, so one of the division’s underdogs will have to face one of the biggest teams in the league before facing the unknown.
