Is this Rotherham United side the Championship's worst ever?

It's been a truly dismal season for the Millers, who are all but relegated even though it's mid February.

When it's official that Rotherham United are relegated from the Championship, it will come as a relief to their suffering supporters, who are probably just waiting to be put out of their misery.

The Millers are rock bottom with a staggeringly low 19 points from 32 games, leaving them 12 points behind the team above them, Blackburn Rovers, and 14 points behind 21st placed Burton Albion.

It's begged the question whether they're the worst team to play in the Championship since it was re-branded in 2004, and the stats don't make good reading for Millers fans.

The lowest ever points tally over the course of a season is 26, managed by Blackpool, and while Rotherham have already matched the lowest ever amount of wins in a campaign with four victories, that's about as good as it gets.

Rotherham have shipped a whopping 68 goals, with the most conceded in a season being 91 - again by Blackpool - and they're on course to break that.

The Millers have conceded an average of 2.125 goals per game, and that average spread across their remaining 14 matches will leave them conceding 97 goals. It could get a whole lot worse before things get better for Rotherham.
