Rotherham United welcome Huddersfield Town to the New York Stadium for Saturday’s Championship game.

Sitting at the bottom of the table the Millers will be hoping to get their first points on the board since January while Town are just two places above though with a much better points tally.

Huddersfield come into this game on the back of a four-one home loss to West Bromwich Albion while the Millers went down five-nil away at Norwich City last weekend. Town’s last away game was at Cardiff where a thirtieth minute City goal was enough to give the hosts all three points. Rotherham’s last home game was also a one-nil loss with the points going to neighbours Sheffield Wednesday.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield Millers Head Coach Leam Richardson said that last week was a very disappointing week saying, ‘but the good thing about football is that there is an opportunity round the corner to give a really strong account of yourselves and we have to do that on Saturday. It’s very, very important that we stay focused.

The Millers will be without Andre Green for the rest of the season while Grant Hall, Lee Peltier and Cohen Bramall are major doubts although there is some good news about Tyler Blackett who might be involved in his first game since scoring against Bristol City in October.

Town’s Head Coach Andre Breitenreiter spoke to their Official Site and said that they have nine games left, including this one, saying, ‘it would be good to start with a win. A win would give us more belief, more confidence. We start every game to win so it would be good to get one this weekend. We have to think positive thoughts and I believe in my team and believe we can stay in this league.’

Josh Ruffels and Ollie Turton are both out for the rest of the season and even should Kian Harratt overcome his hamstring injury he has been suspended for breaching FA betting rules. A groin injury has kept Rhys Healey out since the beginning of February so he is a doubt also.

Peterborough’s Josh Smith has the whistle for this game.
