Rotherham United welcome Nottingham Forest to the New York Stadium this afternoon with Forest one place above the Millers on goal difference.

The Millers come into this game on the back of a four-nil win at relegation rivals MK Dons last week with Forest losing at home on Monday night to promotion hopefuls Brighton.

Forest come to the New York Stadium without an away win since the beginning of February which was at Elland Road while Rotherham last lost at home to Charlton at the end of January.

Vital Quotes:

Neil Warnock – Forest shouldn’t be in the position they’re in. They have some good players and we’ve got to compete with that but we know what it’s going to be like. It’s great for us to be playing Forest who will have a good following so it should be another good atmosphere.

Andy Reid – We are under no illusions, it’s going to be a really, really tough game but with the players we’ve got we know we can get a win. But we’ll need to work hard, get the ball down and expose their weaknesses.

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers will give a late fitness test to Lee Frecklington who went off during the first half at MK Dons last Saturday. If Frecks doesn’t make it Joe Newell could get a rare start but Jerome Thomas is also biting at the bit. Definitely out is defender Lloyd Doyley.

Player to watch: Greg Halford

Former Forest player who has become a ‘new person’ since Neil Warnock took over and is now enjoying his time with the Millers

Nottingham Forest Team News:

Jamie Ward is a major doubt for Paul Williams and it could be that Dexter Blackstock gets the nod after coming off the bench to score on Monday night. Kevin Wilson is also a doubt but it’s better news for Michael Mancienne who could travel over with the squad after getting over an ankle problem.

Player to watch: Henri Lansbury

Midfielder who creates chances for the forwards but has also found the net a couple of times himself this season. Someone our defensive midfielders will have to keep an eye on
