Match Preview: Rotherham United v Rovers

20 April 2018

Rovers travel to the New York Stadium this Saturday to take on another promotion chasing side in Rotherham United.

Darrell Clarke and co venture north for the last time this season for their penultimate away fixture and will have to be at their best to take something from the fourth placed Millers.

Charlton Athletic and Blackburn Rovers have been Rovers' previous two opponents, claiming respectable 1-1 draws at home to both the top six sides heading into another encounter against a promotion contender this Saturday.

Gaffer's View: The Manager was again on press duties in the usual Thursday lunchtime timeslot and discussed a whole host of matters.

In a rush? We have condensed what Darrell said heading into Saturday's game into a five-point preview.

Player's View: Lee Brown spoke with the local media to give his take on Saturday' trip north.

Opposition: Rotherham secured an important victory midweek against Gillingham. The three points in Kent moved Rotherham onto a points tally of 73, nine points ahead of the chasing pack outside the playoff spots.

A seven-game winning run between January and February allowed Rotherham to rise into the playoff contention and a steady show of form since has given Paul Warne's side the chance to bounce back to the Championship at the first attempt.

Last Time Out: Rovers battled back from going a goal behind in the reverse fixture earlier this season to record a victory at the Memorial Stadium. Ryan Williams had edged Rotherham ahead on the stroke of the hour mark, but Rovers responded with goals from Ellis Harrison and Liam Sercombe.
