Rotherham United make the long trek to the Welsh capital to take on Cardiff City which sees Paul Warne take on former Millers Boss Neil Warnock.

Rotherham go into this fixture on the back of a home defeat which saw promotion hopefuls Huddersfield score a late winner. The Bluebirds Valentine Days game was a seven goal thriller ending with them getting a four-three win away at Derby County. These results saw City move up into twelfth place while Rotherham are fourteen points away from safety at this point.

Cardiff's last home game saw them lose one-nil to Norwich while the Millers last away game was at Bristol City which saw them also lose one-nil.

Vital Quotes:

Paul Warne - Neil Warnock will have his team organised at defending at at set-pieces and he'll send his team out and expect a performance that is good enough to beat us.

Neil Warnock - We've just had two great results but I told the lads that our most difficult game of the season will be on Saturday because Rotherham aren't a bad side. It will be hard and I'm not kidding myself because they will want to put a performance in against me. I think it will be a good game.

Cardiff City Team News:

Rickie Lambert is suffering with a back injury so is a major doubt but former Miller Greg Halford, who picked up a knock on Tuesday, should make it.

Player to watch: Greg Halford

Former Miller who will probably think he has something to prove

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers will be without Cardiff loanees Tom Adeyemi and Semi Ajayi but Joel Ekstrand could make his debut. After being out for a couple of weeks Aimen Belaid and Darnell Fisher are hoping to be back while Paul Warne will be hoping Danny Ward, who limped off injured on Tuesday night, will make it though he is only rated as 50/50. Carlton Morris has yet to join up with Rotherham from Norwich City and Lee Frecklington is still out.

Player to watch: Jon Taylor

Quick down the wing and can pop the odd goal in too
