Rotherham United welcome West Bromwich Albion to the New York Stadium this afternoon in a game which sees the Millers start the game in twentieth position and Albion just below the automatic promotion places in third.
A late goal last weekend saw Rotherham get a home point against Reading while the Baggies also came from behind at South Yorkshire neighbours Sheffield United to win two-one.
Rotherham United’s Assistant Boss Richie Barker told iFOLLOW that he thinks Darren Moore has done an ‘excellent’ job since taking over at The Hawthorns and that the game this afternoon will probably be a game as tough as the Millers are going to get saying it will be like ‘playing a Premier League team.’ and asks that ‘our fans stick with us’. He also said he expects the Baggies, ‘to monopolise possession and create chances but the Millers will give it everything.’
The Millers will have Sean Raggatt back available after illness laid him low last weekend but the game will come a little early for Kyle Vassell who has had further scans this week with it being hoped he will be back training between Christmas and the New Year.
West Brom’s Manager Darren Moore told their Official Site that he expects the Bookies to say it’s ‘West Brom’ but that ‘Rotherham’s home record speaks for itself and it’s important that we remain focused.’
West Brom will be pleased to welcome Kyle Bartley back in the squad after the central-defender has been out with a knee injury since October. The Baggies will also have injured pair James Morrison and Hal Robson-Kanu back.
Tony Harrington from Cleveland has the whistle this afternoon.
