MATCH PREVIEW: ROTHERHAM

16 August 2019

BURTON Albion’s second home game of the League One season is against another club relegated from the Championship. After losing 1-0 to Ipswich two weeks ago the Brewers will be hoping for better luck this time as they take on Rotherham

HEAD 2 HEAD

The Brewers and Rotherham will be meeting in League One for the first time. The clubs have previously met in League Two and in The Championship. In the 2016/17 Championship season, Albion completed the double over the Millers winning both games 2-1. The last three times Rotherham have visited the Pirelli Stadium have seen them return home without a win – drawing one and losing two.

BURTON ALBION TEAM NEWS

Burton Albion were missing Nathan Broadhead at Port Vale on Tuesday with an ankle problem preventing the on-loan striker being able to follow up his impressive double strike at Gillingham last weekend. Richard Nartey is also still struggling with injury, but David Templeton made the bench at Vale Park after recovering from his hip flexor problems.

VIEW FROM THE ROTHERHAM CAMP

Speaking to the Rotherham club website Millers manager Paul Warne said: “I’ve always liked (Burton) and I've always liked Nigel. His teams produce results regularly and he has quite rightly been the manager there for a long period of time.

“In fairness to them, they lost to a deflected shot against Ipswich. They'll see us as a chance to get their home season going. They'll be desperate to win, as will we.”

REFEREE

Nicholas Kinseley will be in charge of Saturday’s game, with Simon Shaw and Steve Plane assisting. Mr Kinseley handed out 74 yellow and two red cards in 24 League One and Two games last season. This is his first League One game of 2019/20.
