Rotherham United welcome Bristol Rovers, who are eight places and seventeen points behind the Millers, to the New York Stadium.

The Millers could clinch a play-off place this afternoon with Rovers last away defeat being at the beginning of the month away at Fleetwood with Rotherham’s last home game being a win against the same club.

Rotherham Manager Paul Warne is expecting Rovers to make it hard for his team tomorrow saying that he won’t be underestimating them this afternoon but thinks his Millers team has looked ‘impressive’ in the last two games.

Suffering with a hamstring problem defender Joe Mattock hasn’t played since Good Friday for the Millers but has trained for the last two days so will be in contention for this afternoon. Darren Potter has only had sixty minutes in a reserve fixture since suffering an Achilles injury at the start of December so probably won’t be risked. After getting four points from the last two games away from home, Warney might not want to change the side but David Ball, Joe Newell and Anthony Forde are all sitting on the sidelines waiting for the nod.

The Bristol Rovers Manager Darrell Clarke said that there will be fans of his club coming to the New York Stadium expecting a performance from the team and he will be trying to make sure that happens.

The Pirates Boss might change things a little, looking at a couple of different players and youngsters Mo Baghdadi and Kenan Dunnwald could play some part in this afternoons game.
