Rotherham V Birmingham at AESSEAL New York Stadium : Match Preview

13 April 2017 01:34

Lee Frecklington and Tom Adeyemi could boost Rotherham against Birmingham

Rotherham midfield pair Lee Frecklington and Tom Adeyemi both hope to be fit for the home game against Birmingham.

Frecklington, who returned from ankle surgery in February, has missed the last two games due to knee and calf problems.

Adeyemi has missed the last three matches due to a calf strain, but is also battling to be fit to feature in the Easter weekend fixtures.

Joe Newell will be assessed after shaking off a knock to start in last week's defeat at Wigan, while boss Paul Warne has reported no new injury worries.

Birmingham manager Gianfranco Zola could be without striker Clayton Donaldson because of injury.

Donaldson picked up a knee injury in training and will be checked on before Zola decides if he can make the trip with Birmingham needing a rare win to ease their relegation worries.

Defender Josh Cogley has a problem with his ankle and could also miss out while central defender Michael Morrison remains the only long-term absentee.

Zola will be looking for his side to bounce back after conceding an injury time winner to Derby on Saturday in Gary Rowett's first return to St Andrew's as an opposition manager since his sacking by Birmingham.
