Rotherham United welcome Fleetwood Town to the New York Stadium this afternoon in a game that they will be hoping to get back to winning ways in.

The Millers last home game ended in a draw with Fleetwood also drawing their last away game, nil-nil with Charlton.

Easter Monday saw Fleetwood beat Bristol Rovers at home while the Millers lost three-one away at Charlton.

Vital Quotes:

Paul Warne – Fleetwood are a really good team and are really difficult to play against. They are becoming a real force in this league and Shez (John Sheridan) has done really well there.

John Sheridan – Rotherham are having a decent season. They’re at home,, have good players and play on the front foot but we’re on good form and go there thinking we will win the game.

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers will be without Joe Mattock tomorrow and Ben Purrington will probably keep his place. Richie Towell will be back in contention after injury. Paul Warne is still waiting for Darren Potter to get a game under his belt after missing a big part of the season injured so won’t be in this afternoon’s squad.

Player to watch: David Ball

Dropping to the bench on Monday, former Town forward Bally will be hoping to play some part this afternoon and help his team mates get all three points.

Fleetwood Town Team News:

John Sheridan has no new injuries going into this afternoon’s game although he will have to decide if he goes with Conor McAleny or Jordy Hiwula up front after Hiwula came off the bench for McAleny on Monday and scored.

Player to watch: Paddy Madden

Scored five goals for the Cod Army since joining in January and, after being a target some time ago for the Millers, will probably want to score at the New York Stadium.
