Rotherham United welcome Walsall to the New York Stadium this evening who will be fetching a couple of familiar faces back in Ian Sharps (first team coach) and Mark Bradley (strength and conditioning coach).

The Millers go into this game on the back of back-to-back wins, a goal in the final minute of the game beating Bury at the New York Stadium at the weekend.

Walsall are looking for their first away win of the season having lost out to a late goal at Bristol Rovers on Saturday.

Vital Quotes:

Paul Warne – Walsall are going to be really hard to break down and they’ve got pace and power up front. It will be a tough game for us and we’re going to have to move the ball quickly.

Jon Whitney – We are very close to getting that away win. ‘I’m glad we’re playing tonight and we haven’t had to wait a week after Bristol Rovers. Good teams bounce back. That is what we have done in the past. And that is what we will do tonight.

Rotherham United Team News:

Warney has said that he will freshen things up for this evenings game. After coming off injured during the first half on Saturday defender Shaun Cummings is a major doubt with likely replacement Josh Emmanuel suffering with a toe injury, so it could be we see Will Vaulks in the right-back position. Despite having stitches in a head wound Kieffer Moore will be available.

Player to watch: RIchie Towell

Could make his first start since joining the Millers. Makes a nuisance of himself on the pitch and scored a cracking goal on Saturday

Walsall Team News:

Jon Whitney may chose to go with the same starting eleven who lost away at Bristol Rovers although Tyler Roberts and Kieron Morris will be hoping for a call.

Player to watch: Erhun Oztumer

Tends to have a free-reign on the pitch and is a midfielder who knows where the goal is
