Rotherham United welcome a Blackburn Rovers team, who haven’t won since the end of January, to the New York Stadium this afternoon.

The Millers themselves are without a win since New Years Day and drew all their games last month so will be hoping to start the third month of the year with all three points.

Rotherham United’s last home game was a two-all draw with neighbours Sheffield Wednesday while Rovers also drew two-all in their last away game at St Andrews against Birmingham City.

Injured trio Michael Ihiekwe, Jon Taylor and Joe Mattock have all trained but will be monitored closely with hopes that they will be available but Sean Raggett is still having ankle problems and could be out some time.

Millers Manager Paul Warne told the Official Site that he knows Blackburn really well and likewise saying, ‘they’ve had a really good run and picked up loads of points. I hope the fans get right behind the team again and hopefully we have a better end to the game than we did last time we were at home.’

Rovers are without Derrick Williams who will be serving the last of a two match ban and Darragh Lenihan, Ben Gladwin and Dominic Samuel are still on the sidelines.

Ahead of the game Blackburn Manager Tony Mowbray told their Official Site, ‘Rotherham are a really dangerous team. We need to stay strong, stay together, and keep working hard.’

John Brooks from Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire is in charge this afternoon.
