Rotherham United make the long trek down to Ashton Gate today to take on Bristol City who are just one place and one point above the Millers.

The Robins last home game was a fantastic six-nil win for them with the Millers winning their last away game one-nil against Ipswich Town.

City lost their last home game at the beginning of March when Cardiff were the visitors with the Millers last away loss being in mid-February against Reading.

Vital Quotes:

Lee Johnson – They are one point behind us and We have got to make sure we do everything we can to pick up the points tonight. Neil Warnock is clever and experienced and I know a lot of players who have played under him. He’s done very well and should be commended for that but it’s about us tonight and we’ll be up for it. But we know we’ll have to be at our best tonight.

Ronnie Jepson – Lee Johnson has done a fantastic job and Bristol City have been playing some good football. It’s a tricky one and we’ve got to look at the strengths and weaknesses of the opposition. But it’s about how we go about our jobs and if we continue like we have been doing then hopefully we can come away with some sort of result.

Bristol City Team News:

Lee Johnson says he might mix it up tonight. Korey Smith was injured in the warm-up against Hull on Saturday and will have a late fitness test and Derrick Williams is a doubt with a hamstring injury. Luke Freeman is pushing for a start but Johnson could play Mark Little if Smith doesn’t make it.

Player to watch: Aden Flint

Centre-half who will make his one hundredth consecutive appearance for the Robins this evening and isn’t to scoring a goal or two

Rotherham United Team News:

Rotherham United are waiting on news about their appeal against Matt Derbyshire’s sending off on Saturday but if he’s cleared then he will play. Danny Ward had no reaction from his half-an-hour on the pitch against Leeds and Frazer Richardson is fit again.

Player to watch: Lee Frecklington

Midfielder who is enjoying his football again and scored against Leeds on Saturday and also won the penalty which gave the Millers the win over their West Yorkshire rivals.
