Rotherham United go to Northampton this afternoon hoping to put the last two results behind them.

The Cobblers sit just above the relegation zone, a point above Fleetwood who have a game in hand while Rotherham are sixteen places above them hoping to cement a place in the play-offs.

The Millers last away game was last Tuesday when they took an early lead but ended up on the wrong side of a three-two score line. Northampton’s last home game was goalless when Oxford were at the Sixfields.

Vital Quotes:

Jimmy Floyd Hassebaink – We really want to improve our home form. We are going to have to be at our best against Rotherham and play at a high tempo against a very, very good team.

Paul Warne – Northampton are defensively really sound and work really hard out of possession. I think it will be a tough game with few chances

Northampton Town Team News:

Matt Crooks will be missing due to suspension and Aaron Pierre and Aaron Phillips are both out injured. After having a knee injury Kevin van Veen could be back in the match day squad.

Former Millers ‘keeper who will want to show Rotherham why they should have kept him

Rotherham United Team News:

After making a couple of changes for Tuesday’s game Paul Warne could go back to the eleven who won seven games in a trot before the blip last weekend. But Jon Taylor (who scored on Tuesday night), Matty Palmer and Ryan Williams are all vying for a start. Joe Mattock is a slight doubt ahead of this game.

Might have had a wobble at the back the other night but gets in the right positions to put the ball in the net from set-pieces
