Rotherham United are on their travels again today, going down to London to take on Charlton Athletic at The Valley.

After two wins in a row the Addicks are in eighth place in League One with Rotherham four places and eight points ahead of them.

The Millers last away game saw them lose two-nil to Southend with Charlton’s last game at the Valley seeing them beat promotion rivals Plymouth two-nil. On Good Friday Rotherham got a point from a home draw with Peterborough whereas Charlton thumped Northampton four-nil away.

Vital Quotes:

Lee Bowyer – It`s going to be a difficult game. Rotherham are obviously a good side. But if we work hard then I think we`ll be OK.

Paul Warne – Charlton are a really good footballing side and have some really good players. When they beat us here they stopped us having any impetus in the game. On their day they are a really difficult team to play against. Lee Bowyer might be inexperienced in coaching but isn’t inexperienced in football and he’s very enthusiastic.

Charlton Athletic Team News:

Lee Bowyer will wait to see how things are before deciding whether to make changes from their Good Friday win.

Player to watch: Josh Magennis

Tall, quick Irish International forward who has twelve goals for the Addicks and Northern Ireland so far this season who the Millers defence will need to keep an eye on.

Rotherham United Team News:

Joe Mattock and Richie Towell limped off on Friday so will be doubts for the Millers.

Player to watch: Michael Smith

Tall forward who will want to add to his five Millers goals this afternoon.
