Match Preview | Rotherham United (A)

Luton Town travel to South Yorkshire on Saturday afternoon to visit Rotherham United at New York Stadium in the Sky Bet Championship.


The Hatters will want to continue their upward trajectory after nine games without defeat, while Rotherham will look to extend their four-point gap above the relegation zone.

Rob Edwards said:

“Rotherham have done great this year. Matt [Taylor] has obviously taken over from a manager [Paul Warne] that’s done really well at that football club. But when they have been in the Championship, it’s been hard for them to stay there. So where they are right now, he’s [Matt Taylor] done a fantastic job.

“They’re coming off the back of some really brilliant results and performances, beating West Brom, and a really hard-fought point away at Norwich. That, in itself, shows just how difficult this test is going to be for us.

“They are fighting, so if anyone thinks it’s just going to be easy, they need to think again, it’s not. This is the Championship, it’s going to be a really difficult game and no one can assume anything. We’ve got to be right at it to try and get anything from it.”

The opposition:

Rotherham United are undefeated in their last three games and have lost just twice in their last eight matches.

The Millers have found form at the business end of the season, which has steered them away from the bottom three in recent weeks.

January signing Jordan Hugill has settled in well in South Yorkshire, he has scored two braces in his first 12 games.

Last time we met:

Luton Town found a last-minute equaliser against Rotherham United at Kenilworth Road back in November.

Hatters legend Mick Harford took charge as Luke Berry came off the bench and scored the equaliser in stoppage time; it was Luton Town’s last game before the World Cup break.
