Millers v Cottagers Preview

Rotherham United

New York Stadium

1 April 2017


Rotherham United could be relegated by the end of this afternoon's game when they are at home to Fulham.

Sitting bottom of the table the Millers are forty-four points behind the Fulham who are one place below the play-off places.

The Cottagers last away game saw them get a good win over promotion hopefuls Newcastle United with the Rotherham last home game was a win for visitors Brighton and Hove Albion.

Last time out both Rotherham and Fulham had losses - the Millers away at QPR and Fulham at home to Wolves.

Vital Quotes:

Paul Warne - Fulham love to pass the ball and come down the centre of the pitch. They have a lot of pace in their team. I need our lads to go toe-to-toe with them and give our fans something to cheer about

Slavisa Jokanovic - Rotherham have not had the best season and we go into this game as favourites. But this is the Championship and you never know what is going to happen. We know we are going to find some long balls and that they have some people who will attack in the second phase. We have to be one hundred per cent focused.

Rotherham United Team News:

Rotherham United could welcome back Richard Wood, Darnell Fisher and Stephen Kelly to the match day squad after injury but it's likely that Will Vaulks will stay in his new role as right-back. Richard O'Donnell is back after a hand injury and will push Lewis Price for the place between the sticks. Carlton Morris could make his home debut this afternoon after coming off the bench last time out. Definitely out is Joe Mattock who is suspended.

Player to watch: Danny Ward

Really needs to get back on the goal scoring trail and why not at home this weekend.

Fulham Team News:

Scott Parker probably won't make this game suffering with a back problem while a broken jaw keeps Lucas Piazon out. Coming off the bench and scoring last time out against Wolves could give Dennis Odoi a chance of a start.

Player to watch: Chris Martin

On loan from Derby and top scorer so far this season for the Cottagers. Has been on International duty with Scotland scoring in their win over Slovenia at the weekend.
