Rotherham United will need to get over their three point deduction dished out by the Football League yesterday as high flying Norwich come to town this afternoon.
The Millers will be more desperate to get something from this afternoon’s game but the Canaries will also be going all out as they still have a good chance of an automatic promotion place.
Rotherham were without a game at the weekend due to Reading’s exploits in the FA Cup but last time out they got a point away at Craven Cottage. Norwich had a rare home defeat last Saturday to fellow promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough and start today’s game in fourth place, which is eighteen places above the Millers and have double the points.
Steve Evans – If we get a win against Norwich that would be my best result as a manager, given the circumstances. Norwich are a wonderful football club with wonderful players and good supporters. We hope to make it game on here.
Alex Neil – We are looking forward to this game and we expect a strong response. What we`ve got to do is take care of our part, because the worst thing for us would be if we don`t take care of our business, and other teams do slip up, there would be that opportunity that you`d have let pass by. With them being at home they will want to go and make sure that they keep their status in the league and they are a decent side. They’re strong and relatively direct and we are going to be big and strong and hope our quality comes through in the end.
Rotherham United Team News:
Apart from Frazer Richardson the Millers go into this game with a fully fit squad. Jonson Clarke-Harris was recalled earlier this week from his loan spell with Doncaster Rovers so could play some part in the game.
