Sheffield Wednesday v Rotherham United: is it on tv, what time is kick off and what are the odds?

Sheffield Wednesday will host fellow Championship strugglers Rotherham United in a south Yorkshire derby on Saturday as they look to bounce back from defeat at Blackburn Rovers.

Following last weekend’s defeat to top of the table Norwich, Rotherham are currently hovering above the relegation zone in 20th place just four places below Wednesday.
