Rotherham United welcome Peterborough United to the New York Stadium for the last game of 2019 this afternoon.
The Millers go into this game on the back of an away win at Shrewsbury on Boxing Day with their last home game being a two-all draw with Fleetwood Town. The last time the Millers won a home league game was mid-November against Accrington Stanley.
Peterborough are a place above Rotherham in the table with their Boxing Day game seeing them get a surprising three-nil loss at home to Doncaster Rovers. The Posh’s last away game was a goalless draw with Bristol Rovers when a superb Christy Pym save in time added on helped ‘Boro get a point.
Rotherham United Manager Paul Warne told Radio Sheffield that he expects Peterborough to ‘take the game to Rotherham’ saying, ‘they have a brilliant strike force. We’ve got a lot we need to address but, hopefully, we can be really competitive on match day.’
The only major concern for this afternoon for Paul Warne is Joe Mattock who appeared to get two knocks on Boxing Day.
Peterborough will have Siriki Dembele, Idris Kanu, Josh Knight and Nathan Thompson missing this afternoon while there is also a doubt over Serhat Tasdemir. But Darren Ferguson is hopeful of having Mark Beevers back in the travelling party.
Andy Haines from Tyne and Wear takes charge of the game this afternoon.
