Rotherham United make the long trek to Ashton Gate today to take on Bristol City for the last game of 2018.

Still looking for their first away win of the season the Millers are sitting just one place and one point above the dreaded relegation zone going into this game while the Robins are in mid-table.

City drew at home on Boxing Day to Brentford with their last home win coming against Hull City in October. Rotherham’s Boxing Day game away at fellow strugglers Bolton Wanderers ended in a two-one defeat.

Assistant Manager Dean Holden says that the Robins have a ‘burning desire’ to get a home win this afternoon.

A calf injury will probably keep Nathan Baker out of the Bristol City side with Adam Webster looking to deputise again. Also out are Korey Smith and Liam Walsh.

Rotherham Manager Paul Warne is expecting a difficult game this afternoon against an organised Bristol City side.

Zak Vyner will have to sit this one out as he is on loan from the Robins and there are also doubts over Joe Mattock and Richie Towell while Jamie Proctor left the pitch early against Bolton with an injury. The game will probably be too early for injured striker Kyle Vassell, though it’s hoping he’ll be fit for selection soon after the new year.
