Rotherham United are back in League action this weekend when they travel to take on Fleetwood Town.

The Millers have won a Trophy game and lost on penalties to QPR in the FA Cup since their last league game on New Years Day when they beat Bolton at home. Their last away game was a one-nil loss at Accrington on Boxing Day.

Fleetwood were in action in League One last weekend and got all three points away at Doncaster with their last home game seeing them lose three-nil to Sunderland in December, their last home win being earlier that month against Gillingham.

Both teams will be setting their sights on a win with Rotherham hoping to hold on to top spot while the Cod Army will want the points to help them move away from the bottom six in the table as they find themselves just two points away from the relegation places.

Stephen Crainey, Head Coach of the hosts, told Fleetwood’s Official Site that he was looking forward to the game saying, ‘Games don’t come much bigger than playing the top of the league and it will be a good test for us. They (Rotherham) are a good solid side who have strength in depth but we are coming off the back of a good win and hopefully we can back that up on Saturday.’

Millers Manager Paul Warne spoke to IFollow ahead of this game saying, ‘All teams are capable of beating anyone on their day and if you aren’t at your best you don’t win so we just have to prepare our team to be at their best. We have to take our chances.’

The Millers have a clean bill of health coming into this game with both Mickel Miller and Ben Wiles having trained this week.

In the middle for this game will be Robert Lewis from Shrewsbury.
