Match Preview

Kee back for Burton Leading scorer Billy Kee should be back in Burton's starting line-up for the visit of Rotherham. Kee has been plagued by groin problems since November and has not played since January 2. He was expected to return to the side against Crewe in midweek but boss Paul Peschisolido opted to leave the 12-goal striker out of the squad. Peschisolido is confident that Albion have got to the root of the problem but wants to make sure Kee is 100% before throwing him back into action. "I'd rather have a fully-fit fit Billy than a 75%-fit Billy. I'm confident that he will be fully fit for Saturday," said Peschisolido, who may spring a surprise and include new signing Chris Riggott in the squad. Riggott has been training with Burton after an injury-hit second spell with Derby and the 31-year-old defender has agreed a short-term deal at the Pirelli Stadium. "Chris has not played competitively for some time. I think he thinks he is okay to play, but we don't want to rush him back into action and then he gets injured. We may try and ease him in gently or we may throw him in, we'll see," said Peschisolido, who will again be without on-loan Swansea midfielder Lee Lucas (hamstring) and the versatile Aaron Webster (hamstring). Rotherham manager Andy Scott is hoping to name the same team for the third successive game at Burton. The Millers have won their last two matches, against Southend and Accrington, and Scott will be hoping his squad can overcome some "bumps and bruises" in order for him to keep the faith. On-loan Shaun Harrad has hit it off with Alex Revell in attack, scoring three goals between them in the two games they have played together, so 15-goal top scorer Lewis Grabban will remain on the bench. Forward Gareth Evans, who has been out of the last four games, is no nearer a return following steroid injections into his back earlier this week. Luke Foster and Jamie Annerson (both knee) continue to occupy the treatment room as the Millers head to the Pirelli Stadium looking to close the gap on the play-off places.

Match Report

Harrad rescues point for Millers Shaun Harrad scored against former club Burton to give Rotherham a 1-1 draw. Calvin Zola gave the hosts a first-half lead but Harrad struck with his third goal in as many games on loan from Bury to rescue a point and leave the Brewers without a win in eight games. Burton had the better openings after a sluggish start, but had to wait until five minutes before the break for their opener. Jacques Maghoma fired too high after a powerful run from midfield and Adam Bolder had a shot blocked after dwelling too long on a chance inside the Rotherham box. Andres Gurrieri then drove a shot too close to goalkeeper Rhys Taylor. The hosts were finally rewarded when Zola got the final touch to a John McGrath free-kick which deceived the visitors' defence at the near post. Bolder spurned a chance to extend Burton's lead - and it proved a costly missed when Rotherham levelled in the 56th minute. Sam Wood drove a corner low and Harrad was on hand to bundle the ball over the line. Burton had a chance to win it near the end but Zola fired into the side-netting after rounding goalkeeper Rhys Taylor, who then kept out a blistering shot from Bolder in added time.
