Match Preview

Bradley blow for Millers Mark Bradley has been added to Rotherham's list of injured defenders ahead of the home clash with Burton. Bradley requires surgery after dislocating his shoulder during the midweek Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat to Sheffield United. Fellow defender Ryan Creswell remains sidelined after missing the last three games with an ankle injury and Troy Brown is away on international duty with Wales` Under-21s. Manager Andy Scott has only two fit centre-halves, Michael Raynes and Jonny Mullins, with the latter having only recently returned to action following a long-term knee injury. Mullins started on the substitutes' bench in midweek but was pressed into action when Bradley was injured. Midfielder Gareth Evans was also rested on Tuesday night but is expected to return to the side, as is goalkeeper Conrad Logan, on loan from Leicester, who made way for Andy Warrington. Burton's defensive crisis has eased ahead of the trip. Boss Paul Peschisolido has been boosted by the return from suspension of Ryan Austin and Aaron Webster. They missed Saturday's 2-2 draw at home to Bradford after being sent off in the 3-1 defeat to Gillingham the previous week. Tony James recovered from his knee injury for that encounter and will again play at centre-half, but fellow defender Nathan Stanton (hamstring) remains an absentee as he faces another couple of weeks out. Winger Cleveland Taylor has recovered from the ankle injury he suffered in Burton's third game of the season. He played 60 minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly against AFC Telford on Tuesday, though, and could feature from the bench.

Match Report

Millers tale of woe Rotherham slumped to a 1-0 home loss to Burton - a fourth successive defeat that drops them further off the promotion pace. Albion made the best of starts with a goal after just eight minutes. Justin Richards skinned Rotherham for pace down the right, slipped a pass wide to Cleveland Taylor and Richards continued his run to turn in Taylor's drive from close range. And the visitors could have had a second after 20 minutes but Billy Kee's goal-bound shot from Taylor's corner was deflected wide. Rotherham struggled going forward, but a clever short corner after 21 minutes by Danny Schofield nearly produced a goal when Ben Pringle slipped the ball back to Schofield and his shot was touched over the bar by Ross Atkins. But the home side's best chance came after 34 minutes when Pringle headed down Schofield's cross only for Lewis Grabban to sky his shot high over the bar. Grabban almost made amends four minutes after the re-start but his shot hit the bar and went over. And his effort sparked a Rotherham revival. Alex Revell's header was scrambled clear by Atkins and Atkins followed that up with two magnificent saves to deny substitutes Marcus Marshall and Gareth Evans. But some resolute defending by Albion, who readily pulled everyone back, saw them through.
