Rotherham United welcome Reading to the New York Stadium for the last home game of the season.

The Millers go into this game knowing a win would have them playing Championship football next season with Reading more or less safe unless something unthinkable happens at the weekend.

Rotherham came back from one down to get a well deserved point against Norwich City on Saturday while Reading, who have had a busy time of late in the FA Cup, lost two-nil to Brentford.

Vital Quotes:

Steve Evans – If I get the same kind of application, the same desire and commitment from the players that I got on Saturday, I’ll be delighted. This is the biggest game of all, the biggest game ever that the stadium has hosted in its short life time. I have nothing but respect for a good Reading team who have a good manager in Stevie Clarke who has done a great job there. We need to produce a big performance because they will come here and want to beat us.

Alex Pearce (defender) – It`s not going to be a game for the fainthearted because Rotherham are going to be fighting or their lives. They are going to be up for it and we are going to have to match them and if we do then, on the night, we will have better players on the field to win the game. But it is going to be tough.

Rotherham United Team News:

Saturday. After coming off the bench and scoring Jordan Bowery must be hoping for a start as could Adam Hammill who, along with Bowery, changed the game when he came off the bench. Jonson Clarke-Harris will be hoping to get some minutes on the pitch after his re-call from his loan spell with Doncaster.
