Rotherham United fans are being urged to ‘Wear Red’ for this afternoon’s game when Birmingham City are the visitors to the New York Stadium in what is being classed as a ‘must win’ game for the hosts.

The game on Good Friday where the Millers travelled to Swansea saw seven goals, unfortunately Rotherham on the wrong end of four-three. The last game the Millers played at home saw Aston Villa come from one down to get all three points.

After having points deducted for breaching spending rules Birmingham find themselves going into this game in eighteenth place four places above the Millers. City got a two-all draw at home on Friday against Derby County with their last away game also ending in a draw when the Blues were at Ipswich.

Rotherham United have no new injury worries and it’s likely Zak Vyner will start despite getting a knock at the Liberty Stadium.

‘It’s going to be another tough game,’ Millers Boss Paul Warne told the Official Site, ‘and they have good quality throughout the side. Garry Monk is doing a great job in difficult circumstances. But we won’t give up and we will keep the fight going.’

Lukas Jutkiewicz was taken off with cramp on Friday but should be fit to start today but Connor Mahoney is still out.

Blues Manager Garry Monk told their Official Site that his team have to be ready for a fight against Rotherham. ‘Mentaly and physically we have to be ready,’ said Monk, ‘which we will be.’

Andy Davies from Hampshire is the referee for this Easter Monday game.
