Rotherham United make the long trip to London on what looks like being a cold Tuesday night to take on Fulham at Craven Cottage this evening.
After a thrilling draw away at Wolves on Saturday, which saw eight goals, Fulham will want to get back to winning ways this evening. The Millers will be buoyed up for this game after getting their first win under caretaker Manager Paul Warne at home against QPR at the weekend.
Rotherham’s last away game, at Burton, ended in a two-one defeat with Fulham giving Reading a five-nil hiding at Craven Cottage on the same day.
Coming into this game the Millers are ten points from safety in bottom spot of the Championship and the Cottagers are just three points off a play-off place in tenth.
Paul Warne – I’m well aware of how good Fulham are especially at home and I won’t be going down there thinking we’ve won a game, we’re excellent although I hope they take something out of their performance on Saturday and take it into the Fulham game. But we’ve got to get the message across that they’ve got to be competitive against a very good team.
