Preview: Rotherham United v Rovers

It’s a second consecutive away game for Rovers on Saturday

28 February 2019

The Blues are on the road again this weekend, making the trip to face Rotherham United at the New York Stadium.

Here’s our guide to the game… 

STATE OF PLAY

Rovers currently sit in 15th position in the Sky Bet Championship table, nine points adrift of the play-offs following the midweek fixtures. 

Tony Mowbray’s men took a point at Birmingham City last weekend to end a run of four straight league defeats. 

Goals from Danny Graham and Charlie Mulgrew – who scored direct from a corner for the third time this season – had Rovers in front, before Birmingham hit back to level the scores at 2-2. 

Rovers were held to a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture against Saturday’s opponents earlier this season. 

Rotherham took a shock lead before the Blues fought back late on thanks to Bradley Dack’s goal. 

As always, we'll be bringing you team news and live updates on the game via social media. Fans can follow all the action on our official Twitter account, with kick-off scheduled for 3pm. 

TEAM NEWS

Derrick Williams will serve the final game of his two match suspension, meaning Amari’i Bell is likely to keep his place in the side. 

Darragh Lenihan is still out, while Harry Chapman is expected to feature again for Rovers Under-23s on Monday night. 

OUR OPPONENTS

Rotherham are fighting to stay in the division. And their survival hopes have taken a hit so far this year. The Millers are yet to win a game in 2019, but have not lost in five games – drawing all five.  

Paul Warne’s team are inside the relegation zone, but only goal difference separates them from Reading. 

And it was against the Royals that the Reds salvaged a point in their last outing. Semi Ajayi’s late equaliser ensured they stayed in touch with their relegation rival.
