Teemu Pukki (8', 20', 61'), Emiliano Buendía (23'), Todd Cantwell (29'), Kieran Dowell (42') and Jordan Hugill (79') scored for Norwich City.
Huddersfield Town have found it difficult to unlock defences of late. Their sum of goals stands at just 4 against opponents over their last 6 fixtures. In those meetings, The Terriers have also seen the number of goals against them come to 10.
Looking at their past form shows that Huddersfield Town:
- haven't lost in the league to Rotherham United in their last 5 games.
- are undefeated in their previous 4 league matches at home.
- haven’t won at home in the past 3 league games.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Wycombe Wanderers in Championship action, Rotherham United will be hoping to turn things around here.

The stats don’t lie, and Rotherham United have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 10 goals in total. In defence, The Millers can certainly do much better. We will have to find out whether or not that trend can be sustained here.
Coming into this contest, Rotherham United have not emerged victorious against Huddersfield Town when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 league matches.
