The Millers go into this game wanting to put the away loss at Bristol Rovers behind them while hoping to get their first home win since the 14th of last month which was the six-one win over Bolton Wanderers.
City’s last game saw them get a late point at home to Doncaster Rovers with their last away game seeing them get a goalless draw at Burton Albion.
Rotherham United’s Assistant Manager Richie Barker says that both himself and Manager Paul Warne have a lot of respect for former Millers Manager and Player Mark Robins who is back in Rotherham this weekend with Coventry. ‘Mark knows what he wants out of the game and knows what he wants from his players which is showing at the minute,’ Richie told iFOLLOW ahead of Saturday’s game. ‘They move the ball about well and we’ve got to plan to get it off them.’
The Millers will still be without Trevor Clark, although he has taken part in training, and while Adam Thompson is back running after a knee injury he still isn’t near a start. Cheidozie Ogbene and Kyle Vassell are both close to playing but this weekend will probably come to soon. Freddie Ladapo, Jake Hastie and Billy Jones all had niggles after last Saturday’s game but should be fit for tomorrow.
Coventry Manager Mark Robins told their Official Site that ‘there is no doubt about it they (Rotherham) are strong and they are very capable. It will be an interesting game and we will be right up for it.’
City will be without Maxime Biamou who has a calf problem.
Darren Handley from Lancashire has the whistle on Saturday.
