Rotherham United travel to The Den on Saturday to take on Millwall who are two places and four points above the Millers who are sitting just one place above the three relegation spots.

The Lions last two home wins have both come in the FA Cup, firstly knocking out fellow Championship side Hull City and then a last minute goal giving them a good win over Premier League team Everton. Their last Championship game at home saw them lose two-nil to Blackburn Rovers.

Sounding like a broken record, the Millers have yet to win an away game this season the last game being a one-nil loss against bottom of the table Ipswich Town.

Millwall Manager Neil Harris told their Official Site that his side have to play ‘off the feel-good factor that is going round the club at the moment. ‘This will be a tough game,’ Harris said, ‘with the aim to be putting daylight between ourselves and Rotherham in the League’.

Neil Harris will have cup-tied trio Ben Marshall, Ben Thompson and Fred Onyedinma back in contention for Saturday but Conor McLaughlin and former Millers loanee Tom Elliott are out injured while Jed Wallace is also a doubt.

Millers Boss Paul Warne told The Official Site that his team need to start picking up points away from home and that, hopefully, that will start this weekend.

The Millers will be without long term injured Jamie Proctor and Darren Potter while Ryan Williams and Sean Raggett are also sidelined. It could be that Matt Crooks, who joined in mid-January, could get his first start having come off the bench for the last two games. Ben Wiles could be in the squad after recently suffering a back injury while Joe Newell could make it after training all week.

Andy Madley from West Yorkshire has the whistle for this game.
