Norwich City travel to Rotherham`s New York Stadium today looking to continue their mini resurgence of recent weeks.
After the terrible run that City went on in the weeks up until Christmas, since that draw at Brentford, things have been a little better. Let`s not get too excited yet though because the draw with the Bees was an awfully dull affair, albeit one that City should`ve won and then there was the excellent display and win over Derby. The draw in the Cup with Southampton helped again, despite a lack of possession in that match.
The late goal combined with coming from behind twice against the Saints, showed a level of character that hasn`t been evident for quite a while – whether it continues is another matter entirely.
Lee Frecklington has suffered yet another injury blow as Rotherham`s skipper has been told he will miss another month with an ankle injury.
Richie Smallwood has been recalled from his loan at Scunthorpe and is in line for a start while Aiden Belaid looks likely for a recall to the Millers` defence.
Robbie Brady completes the last game of his three match ban with Youssouf Mulumbu still in Africa. Graham Dorrans and Louis Thompson are still unavailable through injury and Matt Jarvis suffered a hamstring strain in the u23 win over Aston Villa on Thursday night.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Norwich fan and Rotherham manager, Paul Warne is currently caretaker manager of the Millers and says that he is going to set up his team to attack and have a go at Norwich. Rotherham currently sit bottom of the league, so in their position, why not?
They need maximum points from home games especially and if they are going to go down, they might as well go down fighting.
Norwich will need to keep this mini revival going because anything less than a win is going to be a setback for Alex Neil, the supporters and the club in general.
City should have too much for the Millers but this is the Championship and anything can happen, fingers crossed we can get all the points.
Stay safe in the snow if you`re going.
