Rotherham United’s next game finds them trekking down to Norfolk to take on top of the table Norwich City at Carrow Road.

City’s last home defeat was way back in October when a Wayne Rooney goal for Derby gave the visitors a bit of a surprise win at Carrow Road. Their last game at home saw them beat Stoke City by four goals to one

The Millers lost their first away game of 2021 on Wednesday evening against Bournemouth who, like Norwich, will be hoping to bounce straight back into the Premier League while the Canaries were two-nil winners away to Coventry.

Canaries Manager Daniel Farke says Rotherham are a ‘brave side’ telling their Official Site that he expects another difficult game saying, ‘they always play with great fighting spirit and togetherness.’ A Norwich fan and knowing how much the game will mean to Millers Manager Paul Warne, the Norwich Boss carried on, ‘We’ve had good chats and I’m a big fan of his work. His teams always leave everything out there but I think we will still control the game and we will have to find ways to bypass their pressing and find gaps.’

Norwich have no new injury worries ahead of the game but although on their way back from injury while Jordan Hugill could make it to the bench after injury but, although he’s been involved in the U23’s, Marco Stiepermann probably won’t make it.

Millers Boss Paul Warne knows it will an emotional return to Norwich saying that he will be thinking of his father who sadly died last year. He told the Yorkshire Post, ‘If I manage a team at Norwich there’s not a chance I won’t think about my father, not a chance but I am emotional when I go to Norwich anyway so I don’t know if I will feel more emotional. Norwich is a big ground when you don’t get the ball, so we need a good plan. I just hope we can perform because I honestly think Norwich are still the best team in the league and can cause you all sorts of problems.’

After a long mid-week trip to Bournemouth and back and now the trek to Norwich it is quite probable that there will be some changes for the Millers for this game which could mean the one’s who came off the bench on Wednesday night could be in the starting eleven.

Tony Harrington from Cleveland has the whistle this afternoon.
