Rotherham United travel to the KCOM Stadium this evening to take on Hull City and will be hoping to get their first away win of the season.
After a draw at home on Saturday against Wigan Athletic the Millers are just one point and one place above the three relegation places in the table. Their last away game saw them get a point at The Den in a goalless draw with Millwall.
After an indifferent start to the season City go into this fixture in mid-table winning their last home game two-nil over Stoke City although Saturday’s game away at Derby County finished as a home win.
‘Its another big game,’ City Manager Nigel Adkins told HullLive ahead of this evenings clash which could give his side their sixth consecutive home win.
After not being allowed to play against his parent club Chris Martin, on loan from Derby, is back in contention for the Tigers tonight. Still out injured are Angus MacDonald, Ondrej Mazuch and Jon Toral but Reece Burke and Jordy De Wijs could be back after injury.
Speaking to the Official Site Millers Boss Paul Warne said he is thinking of ‘flipping’ the team saying that if Rotherham want to get anything they have to be at their best. ‘Hull are on a good run. They are good out wide and have pace throughout,’ he said.
Kyle Vassell has to have an operation on a groin injury and will be out for around five weeks while Clark Robertson is only rated fifty/fifty with an ankle problem. Joe Newell came off the bench for some game time on Saturday for the first time since the first day of the year and Ben Wiles, who has been out since mid-January injured was also on the bench. Good news for the Millers is that winger Ryan Williams should travel with the squad.
The Referee for this game is Scott Duncan from Northumberland.
