Rotherham United’s last game of the Easter weekend sees them travel to the Pirelli Stadium where they take on Burton Albion.

Coming into this game on the back of a home win on Saturday the Millers moved back into second spot, their last away game being a disappointing three-nil loss at Portsmouth.

Burton come into Tuesday nights game in seventeen place and have had three goalless draws so far in April two of those being at home to top of the table Wigan and promotion hopefuls Plymouth Argyle.

Brewers Manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink told their Official Site that his team might not be scoring but they aren’t conceding either and they are creating chances. After three goalless draws he said that it could have been three wins. ‘We have to keep working, keep believing and those goals will come,’ he said before saying that playing Rotherham would be another tough game where ‘we need to get another good performance.’

The Brewers have reported no new injury worries ahead of this game.

Speaking ahead of the game Millers Manager Paul Warne told IFollow he said that Saturday’s win will give the dressing room a boost ahead of the last games of the season saying, ‘All we can do is try and be at our best. Burton will cause us a different challenge to what Ipswich did and we are going to have to match their athleticism and physically match them while probably having to sharpen up a little bit in the final third.’

The Millers have, what Paul Warne calls, ‘walking wounded’ with both Jordi Osei-Tutu and Ben Wiles falling into that category while Michael Ihiekwe also has problems although all should be OK for Tuesday. Mickel Miller limped off on Saturday and looks like his season could be over but Angus MacDonald is back from suspension.

Tom Reeves from Birmingham has the whistle for this game.
