PREVIEW: ROTHERHAM UNITED (A)

31 January 2020

BURTON Albion head to their second away match of the week as we face Rotherham United at the New York Stadium tomorrow (kick-off 3pm). Find out all you need to know in our preview here.

This is our second meeting with the Millers this season, following our unfortunate 1-0 defeat in the second home game of the season in August 2019. 

HEAD 2 HEAD

The Brewers have played Rotherham United in three different divisions, and also in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy. However, it was not until the sixth meeting between the sides that the Brewers took three points; that first victory coming away on 8 October 2011. 

The most successful campaign against the Millers came in the 2016-17 season, where we took six points across our two meetings; a 2-1 home victory on the 3 December 2016, and a 2-1 away victory later that same month. 

BREWERS TEAM NEWS

Manager Nigel Clough has no new injury worries ahead of the game, and will evaluate Reece Hutchinson in training to see if the left-back can make the squad after three weeks out.

“We’re going to see how Reece is, he’s down to train this morning,” said Clough.

“Nathan Broadhead is back from Everton, we’re not sure if he’ll be up to going straight back in, but we’ll see.

“He’s been working hard there, they’ve got all his pre-season measurements on his hamstring and everything.

“We’re trying to get him back up to where he was in pre-season and hopefully he’ll be ready to go.

“Everyone else came through the other night okay.”

ROTHERHAM UNITED NEWS

Rotherham currently sit top of the Sky Bet League One table on 50 points, leading jointly with Wycombe Wanderers but with a superior goal difference.

Their most recent match was a 1-0 victory at home to Ipswich Town. This win saw them leapfrog the Tractor Boys and take the lead spot in the table.

Rotherham manager Paul Warne offered the following injury update in his pre-match press conference:

"Billy (Jones) is coming closer but Robbo (Clark Robertson) is my major issue, apart from that, I think to this moment in time we have an otherwise clear bill of health."

MATCH OFFICIALS

The referee for tomorrow’s game will be Will Finnie, who will be assisted by Robert Atkin and Wade Smith, with Ian Dudley as Fourth Official.

Finnie has overseen 25 matches this season, of which five were in League One. During those games he awarded 19 yellow cards, with one being converted to red, and four penalties.

He last refereed the Brewers during our injury time loss to Peterborough United on the 23 November 2019.
