Rotherham United look untouchable, is glass half full or half empty for Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United, and Sheffield United infuriatingly inconsistent - Power Rankings

WHEN it comes to The Yorkshire Post’s Power Rankings list in recent times, Rotherham United have had few peers and continue to flex their muscles into November.

The county’s two dogs by a distance, as it stands. Here’s the latest six-match form guide in all competitions across the county.

Twelve games unbeaten in all competitions and the Millers have claimed some big scalps along the way, not least Sunderland last weekend. Paul Warne’s side have not seen their colours lowered on the road in the league since their opening away game of the season and they are surely THE side to fear at the top of League One. Slow starters en route to promotion? Not this time..

2: Huddersfield Town DWDLWD

Very encouragingly positioned in seventh spot with one defeat in the past seven Champoonship games - definitely the right sort of consistency in a sound start to the campaign. After a comprehensive loss at Bournemouth, their reaction has been pretty handy by way of four points from six against Millwall and Peterborough. On Saturday, they will be aiming to inflict an eighth successive home defeat in all competitions upon beleaguered Cardiff.

3: Harrogate Town DWDLWD

Experiencing their first blip of the season by way of a four-match winless sequence, but perspective should be afforded given their impressive start to the League Two campaign. A switch of focus to Cup matters this weekend against Wrexham and that might not be too bad a thing.

4: Sheffield Wednesday WDDDDW

One win in five league matches or seven games unbeaten in all competitions. Depending on whether your glass is half-full or half-empty will determine which statistic you gravitate towards. What is for certain is that Tuesday’s excellent win over Sunderland was a step in the right direction and it would be a shame if the Owls wasted it. A good mini-run of home games is now coming up, which needs to be seized upon.

5: Leeds United LWLDLW

A return of seven points from 12 in key games against Watford, Southampton, Wolves and Norwich is probably about a par score for Leeds, who had to win for their own peace of mind at Carrow Road on Sunday and duly did. Ranked eighth in the Premier League’s six-match form guide, to provide further perspective. Should be fine when some big players return.

6: Bradford City WDDLWD

After a desperate evening against Hartlepool, four points from six against the high-flying West Country duo of Swindon Town and Forest Green is not to be sniffed at. Following a grim performance at Crawley not so long back, City’s response by way of just one defeat in six League Two games has also been decent. Plenty of work still to do, mind.

7: Middlesbrough LWWWLL

After three successive wins, Boro’s campaign is back going nowhere in particular again after dispiriting losses to Birmingham and Luton. It’s been that sort of season for Neil Warnock, who did have the consolation of making history at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday. Only West Brom next up for the Teessiders.

8: Sheffield United LWLWLD

Consistently inconsistent. See above. The Blades’ propensity for letting their guard slip again resurfaced in their midweek draw at Nottingham Forest when they should have seen the game out in truth. Ranked 19th in the Championship’s latest six-match guide and that sort of sums things up for United.

9: Doncaster Rovers LLWDLD

After a battering at Charlton, Tuesday’s game against fellow toilers Crewe was a ‘must not lose’ and Rovers didn’t as they came from behind for the second time in three League One matches to take something at least.

It is small gains at the moment for Doncaster - whose midweek point was their first on the road in 2021-22. Switch tack to Cup and Trophy matters at local rivals Scunthorpe over the next five days.

10: Barnsley LLLLLW

Hallelujah. Ended their wretched seven-match losing sequence - which claimed Markus Schopp as a casualty - with a cherished win in their relegation six-pointer with Derby and another with Hull awaits this weekend. Victory over the Rams was their first in 14 Championship matches and if the Reds beat the Tigers, expect a chorus of ‘Joseph Laumann’s red and white army’ by the final whistle.

11: Hull City

After a cleansing win over Boro, Hull have hit skid row again by virtue of five successive losses and Grant McCann is being forced to wear a tin hat again - not for the first time.With no away victory since the opening day of the season, City will not need to be told twice about the imperative need for things to change at Oakwell on Saturday. A seismic-looking game in the complexion of Hull’s campaign.
