Confirmed team news: Rotherham United XI revealed ahead of Blackburn clash

Published

on

Rotherham United face another big game in their battle to avoid relegation from the Championship on Saturday afternoon, as they host Blackburn Rovers at The New York Stadium.

The Millers go into the game 22nd in the Championship table, four points adrift of Derby, although they do still have a game in hand.

However, Paul Warne’s side do go into this one off the back of five consecutive defeats, and know they will be relegated today if they lose, and Derby win away at Swansea.

As a result, this is yet another crucial game for Rotherham, and it remains to be seen how they will cope with this one, having been forced to play so many rearranged games in recent weeks.

Does The New York Stadium have a higher or lower capacity than these 18 grounds?

Blackburn meanwhile, have nothing left to play for and sit comfortably in mid-table, following their 5-2 thrashing of Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon.

Perhaps with that in mind, Warne has named a side that shows two changes from the one that lost 1-0 at Brentford in midweek, as Freddie Ladapo and Shaun MacDonald replace Ben Wiles and Wes Harding.

Here is the full confirmed Rotherham team news for this clash with Blackburn:

Starting XI: Blackman; Ihiekwe, Wood (C), A.MacDonald; Ogbene, S.MacDonald, Wing, Lindsay, Giles; Smith, Ladapo

Substitutes: Vickers, Harding, Olosunde, Mattock, Wiles, Barlaser, Sadlier, Jozefzoon, Hirst
