Rotherham United welcome Oxford United to the New York Stadium this evening for the twenty-sixth league meeting between the pair.
The U’s, who are in mid-table, will be disappointed with their home loss at the weekend while the Millers, sitting in the play-off positions, were delighted with another away win at Scunthorpe.
Rotherham will be hoping to make tonight’s game their twelfth without defeat, losing their last home game in November to top side Wigan. Oxford’s last away game saw them beat Charlton three-two.
Paul Warne – Oxford had a pretty good January but not such a great February at the moment. They are a young athletic team who can pass around the pitch and who don’t give you a minutes peace on the ball.
Derek Fazackerley – Rotherham are a side going very well and we know we’ve got to be at our best.
