Preview; The manager of Rotherham United has a lots tonight against Bristol City from source”

Tonight, ROTHERHAM United will play at home in the Championship, and manager Matt Taylor acknowledges that the team’s struggles on the road have left them even more desperate for points.

The Millers are in the relegation zone after going winless on their travels so far this season, and they play 13th-placed Bristol City this evening at AESSEAL New York Stadium.

“The away results increase the pressure on your home form,” Taylor stated. “We’ve been generally strong in New York, but you can’t keep it up if you’re not doing well elsewhere.” You’re only one bad home result away from being in serious trouble.”

Rotherham have lost all five league games on enemy territory, but in S60 they have won once and drawn twice in four games.

The afflicted The Millers are looking to reintroduce playmaker Cafu and a centre-half after hamstring injuries, but they are still missing a number of veteran players.

“I’m looking forward to getting a few more experienced heads back in the group,” Taylor stated.

The manager has warned of the Robins’ attacking quality, which includes one of the division’s best teenagers in 21-year-old Sam Bell, who has already scored four goals this season.

“They have some real quality at the top end of the pitch,” Taylor stated. “They’re very aggressive in terms of their width and how they use it.”

“We’re up against a good team that, because they’re so good on the break, may be well-suited to playing away from home.”

“We have to focus on ourselves and implement our home-style performance, which is front-foot and getting at the opposition.”

City have been monitoring the fitness of right-back George Tanner (ankle) and forward Mark Sykes (cut to the foot), who both left last Saturday’s 3-2 loss to Stoke City at Ashton Gate.
