Millers have home comforts

Tony Mowbray says Rotherham United are a "different kettle of fish" at the New York Stadium

1 March 2019

Rotherham United are yet to win away from home this season, but, at the New York Stadium, Tony Mowbray admits they are a "different kettle of fish".

Paul Warne's outfit have picked up notable scalps on home turf this term, beating the likes of Derby County, Swansea City and Preston North End.
 
And the boss admits his side shouldn't be complacent going into the match, against a team who currently find themselves in the bottom three.
 
“Rotherham are a really dangerous team," Mowbray began.
 
"They have drawn their last five games and are a really honest, hard working team.
 
“Their physical statistics are huge, and you know you have to match that. They have a long throw in that comes into the box and have a striker who doesn’t stop running.
 
“We have to be focussed on the job in hand. We have to go there and ask questions of them. We know they’ll get runners in and around their big striker.
 
“Their fans impact the game as well. Watching the videos, there’s a lot of noise when there is a throw in or a corner. We’ll have to be ready for it.
 
And recollecting the encounter at Ewood Park between the twio teams back in November, Mowbray is hopeful his side won't be as wasteful four months on.
 
“We were very dominant in the game at Ewood, but didn’t create enough, nor were we clinical enough," the 55-year-old confessed.
 
“The vast majority of the game was played in their half but we couldn’t break them down.
 
“They scored from an isolated attack. If the game is similar on Saturday, I’m confident we’ll score and ask questions of them. But at home they are a different kettle of fish."
