Rotherham United entertain Millwall this lunch time which will be the Lions second visit to the New York Stadium.

Going into the weekend Rotherham were nineteenth in the Championship with Millwall fourteenth. The Millers come into the game on the back of a home defeat while Millwall will want to do better in South Yorkshire than they did on Wednesday evening when they lost to Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

There are similarities between both Managers, Paul Warne and Neil Harris, with both having played for the club they are now in charge of and both took their teams into the Championship via a Wembley Play-Off Final.

Rotherham Boss Paul Warne told iFOLLOW that he’s ‘hugely impressed’ with the way Millwall play and are difficult to play against. He also said that his side have to make themselves like that and stop giving teams opportunities to score.

The Millers could be without defender Billy Jones who has a hip problem while it’s doubtful that striker Jamie Proctor will start although it’s likely that he’ll come off the bench for some game time.

The Lions will give a late test to George Saville who suffered concussion at Hillsborough in mid-week but it is expected that Tom Bradshaw, who joined on loan this week, will play some part in the game.

The man in the middle for this Sunday lunchtime kick-off will be Geoff Eltringham from County Durham.
