Blackburn travel to Rotherham United as Paul Lambert looks to sign off his final away game as Rovers’ manager with a win.
The two sides find themselves deep in the bottom half of the table, separated only by the Lancashire side’s superior goal difference.
The Millers go into the game eleven games unbeaten after a magnificent turn around in form since the arrival as Neil Warnock as manager, form that saw them secure their Championship status for another season.
Blackburn, on the other hand, have lost five games in their last ten and manager Paul Lambert announced this week that he will be leaving the club at the end of the season, activating a release clause inserted into his contract when he joined the club.
With both sides safe from the drop, this game will be played out for pride with both bosses looking to end the season on a high.
Here are THREE things to look out for in the game:
1) Neil Warnock’s last game at the AESSEAL New York Stadium?
While all the attention will be on Paul Lambert’s future, its been easy to forget that Neil Warnock’s Rotherham future is far from certain either.
The veteran manager’s contract expires in the summer and he has said that he will decide whether to sign a new deal once the season is over and he has had a chance to speak to the chairman.
If Warnock does decide to leave the Millers at the end of the season, this will be his last game in charge at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.
2) How will Blackburn’s players react to the managers departure?
While it was not really a shock when Paul Lambert announced he would be leaving the club at the end of the season, the timing of the announcement is questionable.
While Blackburn don’t have anything to play for, their fans will still want them to approach these final two games as they would any other, and go to win.
It will be interesting to see whether the manager’s announcement will have an impact on the player’s performances.
3) Rotherham’s unbelievable run
Under Neil Redfearn earlier this season, Rotherham looked like they would be playing League One football next season but Warnock has completely turned around they fortunes.
For a side that was struggling at the bottom all season, to go eleven games unbeaten, including wins over promotion chasgin Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough, is nothing short of remarkable.
Millers fans will be hoping that their side can go unbeaten until the end of the season, and then hope that the manager will extend his stay.
Rotherham and Blackburn fans…What are your predictions for the match? Will the Millers make it 12 unbeaten? Can Paul Lambert end his spell at Blackburn on a positive note? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
