Rotherham United make their second trip of the week to take on Oxford United this afternoon at the Kassam Stadium.

Fourth place Rotherham lost their last away game, at Wimbledon, on Tuesday night while the O’s got a draw at home to Charlton Athletic.

Oxford, who are in sixth place in League One, will be boosted with the news that midfielder John Ruffels has committed himself to Oxford until the 2019/20 season.

Rotherham will be hoping to pick up some points on the road this weekend

Vital Quotes:

Chris Allen – Rotherham are going to be right at it. Their recent form is really good and I`m sure they will want a reaction after losing on Tuesday. We have to make sure that doesn`t happen.

Paul Warne – Oxford are a really good footballing team who get the ball down and want to play. They are in really good form and I think they will probably be up there at the end of the season.

Oxford United Team News:

Pep Clotet saw Jon Obika make a return as a substitute on Tuesday and Rob Hall is expected to be fit after a groin strain, while Joe Rothwell is available following a one-game ban but both Gino van Kessel and Dwight Tiendalli look like missing out again with hamstring injuries
