League One leaders Rotherham United prepare to face lowly Shrewsbury Town

Written by James Wilson

League One pace-setters Rotherham United will aim to extend their lead at the top of the table as they visit 17th-placed Shrewsbury Town at New Meadow tomorrow night.

Unbeaten in nine league matches, the Millers will fancy their chances of three points against a Shrewsbury side who lie just six points above the relegation zone.

Securing a 1-0 victory on the south coast against Plymouth on Saturday thanks to a goal from top scorer Michael Smith, Rotherham are now nine points clear of closest challengers Wigan Athletic at the top of League One.

Despite their concerning position near the foot of the table, hosts Shrewsbury will take confidence from their first league victory in nine matches against Burton Albion at the weekend. Tom Bloxham and Matthew Pennington were on the scoresheet as Steve Cotterill’s men picked up a much-needed win on the road.

Rotherham boss Paul Warne will therefore be wary of an upset as he prepares his troops for tomorrow night’s fixture. Speaking ahead of the trip to Shrewsbury, Warne reported a few selection concerns following the victory against Plymouth at Home Park on Saturday.

He said: “There’s a little bit of illness in the camp and one of my players is away for a scan. So we’ve got a few issues, but that’s why we’ve got a squad.”

“I always intended to make a few changes, and knowing the opposition and their strengths it seems a perfect opportunity to do it.”

Rotherham United’s match against Shrewsbury Town will take place at 7:45pm at New Meadow tomorrow night.
