STATE OF PLAY...

Nick Daws’ men come into this game on an eight match unbeaten run which has included four wins in their last five games. Their most recent performance earned them a 1-1 draw against the revitalised Bradford City.

This fixture allowed the interim boss to rest some of his regulars and give others a chance to impress ahead of their upcoming fixture. The Iron haven’t beaten Rotherham this season but they go into the game as one of the division's form teams.

The Millers have had a steady season and have consistently been challenging at the top end of the table. Paul Warne’s men missed out on the opportunity to get automatic promotion but have looked a strong outfit, finishing fourth with 79 points on the table. They come into this game on the back of a 1-0 win over Blackpool and will be looking to carry on from that win in their trip to Glanford Park this weekend. 

TEAM NEWS…

Daws reported no fresh injury worries ahead of the match. He said Luke Williams (hamstring) has now returned to training on Thursday, with Jonathon Margetts (knee) the only absentee.

Five changes were made ahead of the last game to rest some players ahead of the play-offs, so changes could be likely.

ONE TO WATCH…

Rotherham’s midfielder Will Vaulks has scored twice in his last four games for the Millers and has chipped in with goals all season. The 24-year-old’s tally now stands at seven, one of which was against the Iron at the New York Stadium. The midfielder is an experienced member of the squad, having been a Miller since his arrival from Falkirk in 2016.
