Team news

The Millers have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the weekend and will still be without Fraizer Richardson (foot) and it’s unlikely that Febian Brandy will be used as he is still lacking match fitness. The only long term absentee for Millers is utility man Mark Bradley who is still a couple of months away as he recovers from a knee injury. The Millers may hand a debut to new loan signing Paul Taylor who joined late on Thursday night. Kieran Agard could be dropped to the bench as his future remains uncertain after a move to Leeds collapsed earlier today. The visitors likewise do not have any fresh injury issues ahead of the weekend, but they will be without Chris Wood who rejected the clubs contract offer to stay at Leicester City.

Key Players:
Ben Pringle (Rotherham United)

1876194075

The wide-man set up all three goals in the 3-3 draw between the pair in December and he’ll have to be in similar form again if the Millers are to get anything out of the game. Pringle’s crossing is vital to the Millers as his accuracy from dead ball situations allows the Millers to create chances for the likes of Alex Revell and Kari Arnason in the box. Pringle will also needed to help out Joe Skarz down the left as they look to contain van La Parra.

Nouha Dicko (Wolverhampton Wanderers)

JS35193766

 

A fantastic player. Dicko is a strong and quick and has a real eye for goal. He scored a hat-trick in the reverse fixture last season and he’ll be fired up to do further damage to his old club. Dicko is expected to lead the line for the visitors and his direct running and pace will be vital for Wolves as they look to get in behind the Millers’ defence. Dicko will also look to bring Rajiv van La Parra and Bakary Sako into the game.
