Rotherham United welcome Burton Albion to the New York Stadium this evening for the last game of 2016.

The Millers come into this game on the back of a three-two home win against Wigan on Boxing Day with Burton losing narrowly at Villa Park.

The Brewers, like the Millers, haven’t won away from home this season and are in twenty-first place in the Championship. Rotherham are still in bottom spot but moved a little nearer to Wigan after beating them on Monday.

Vital Quotes:

Paul Warne – I expect them to play similar to how they did three weeks ago against us. Nigel (Clough) was really decent when we went there, although the fact that they were winning probably helped but he was good to me after the game and I’ll always respect him for that because I was pretty downbeat.

Nigel Clough – Rotherham have picked up in the last few weeks and it will be as hard as any game we’ve faced so far. They will come out and have a go against us.

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers have no fresh injury worries going into tonight’s game so it could be that Warney will name the same side that started against Wigan on Boxing Day.

Player to watch: Danny Ward

Claiming the goal on Monday but with Richard Wood having something to say about it he will want to score one that he can correctly claim tonight!

Burton Albion Team News:

The Brewers could be without five key men for this evenings game after both Kyle McFadzedan and Jamie Ward went off injured at Villa Park. Ben Tozer missed out on Boxing Day due to an hamstring injury while Will Mellor and Hamza Choudhury are doubts with knocks.

Player to watch: Jackson Irvine

Would no doubt want to do to us again what he did at the Pirelli and open the scoring.
