All the latest on Saturday's game

Reds make their first visit to Rotherham's New York Stadium on Saturday for League One action.


MATCH OFFICIALS

Referee: Michael Bull Assistants: Mathew Buonassisi and Tom Rogers Fourth Official: Michael Denton


TEAM NEWS

Dannie Bulman (fractured cheekbone) is Reds' only absentee. Billy Clarke returns from suspension and new signing Gary Dicker is also in the squad.

Midfielder Richard Smallwood, who is on loan from Middlesbrough, has been added to the Rotherham squad. Claude Davis and fellow defender Kari Aranason are also fit but Craig Morgan (toe) is still sidelined.


VIEW FROM INSIDE THE CAMP

John Gregory: "We know what to expect from Steve (Evans)' teams. They will work extremely hard and be aggressive so we have to match that. They also have some very good players and are flying at the moment after a couple of good wins. They deserve to be in the play-off positions and it's going to be a hard game, just as Coventry was a fortnight ago. But we go there in the belief that we can get a result."


Steve Evans (Rotherham Manager on the return of Matt Tubbs): "It didn't work out for him here but that doesn't make him any less of a person. Matt also had some tough competition here and with the players we've got it makes it really hard for a manager to change things."


WE'VE MET BEFORE

Reds did the double over Rotherham in League Two a couple of seasons ago. We won 2-1 at their temporary home at the Don Valley Stadium and won the return game 3-0. Earlier this season, a second-half goal from David Worrall earned the Millers a 2-1 win after Mat Sadler had put Crawley in front.


FORM GUIDE

Reds have lost just three of their last 13 in all competitions. Rotherham have won their last two games and four out of their last seven.
