Rotherham United welcome Accrington Stanley to the New York Stadium this weekend in a game which sees the Millers start nine places above their visitors in League One.

The Millers come into this game on the back of two away wins – in the league at Gillingham and in the FA Cup at Maidenhead – and an away loss in the Trophy game at Lincoln. Rotherham’s last home game saw a goal in five minutes win the game for Wycombe Wanderers.

Stanley, a couple of points off the bottom three, were beaten at home by Crewe in the FA Cup on Saturday although their last away game saw them get a point from a goalless draw with Coventry City.

Speaking to iFOLLOW Millers Boss Paul Warne said he won’t be playing four-four-two as every time they do they are ‘horrendous’. ‘I really like Accrington,’ the Gaffer carried on. ‘They had a really great performance at Coventry where they drew nil-nil but outplayed Coventry who have been unbelievable this season at home. They’ve got some really good players, they’ve got a goal threat and are a good footballing side so I’m expecting a really tough game.’

Rotherham will be without Joe Mattock who is suffering with a back problem and Richard Wood who limped out of the game last weekend with a hamstring injury. Clark Robertson will be available after injury.

Stanley Boss John Coleman told their Official Site says that his team need to ‘get points on the board’ saying that Rotherham are a ‘good side’. ‘They have got a couple of players we know and they are a good side but we know from beating Ipswich that we are a match for anyone on our day when we play to our strengths.’

Accrington Stanley will be without suspended centre-half Mark Hughes and Aji Alese who is on International duty.

Lancashire’s Darren Handley is the man with the whistle for this League One clash.

Rotherham United will mark Remembrance Day on Saturday at the New York Stadium.
