Looking at the league you could say that Birmingham City is the most likely place to go and get a point away from home so far this season. And what with the International break coming it would be a fabulous time to get something today.

The thing is though this international break would have been handy if it had come a week ago. This would have helped clear up some of the injuries that we have picked up. I have been dreading any news coming from the club because for the last couple of weeks it's only been bad news! Hearing that 2 unnamed players wn't feature for this game or that we'll be missing an infuential player tonight only for it to turn out that two are bloody missing.
You wonder how the hell we're going to cope. Only naming 6 subs then someone limps out of the warm up leaving just 5 with one of theose coming from the academy who's not been anywhere near the first team before.

But maybe this is a good thing! Nah is it heckers like! It's Rotherham United doing the best it can in a league so mismatched that if it was a boxing match we probably not be allowed in the ring.
It's not boxing though, it's a dream come true for us Millers who want to see us play as high in the football pyramid as possible. If punching above our weight was needed to be able to compete then how are we supposed to do that with all the injuries?
We're not! It's as simple as that, We're not supposed to be competing but we are! We're doing more than competing we're getting points out of games we shouldn't be due to the depletion of the squad.

These players are giving us their all! There is pride in every one of those players playing for Rotherham United. We have had players before who we forget the played for us and you can only call them Millers because they turned up but these guys!

Every single one of them is proving that playing for Rotheham United means something! These players in this squad are Millers! And it's fecking great being able to watch them!

Enjoy the match folks! We may be happier at the final whistle than we've been so far this season!

Nice start as ever frog, I do believe that due to Birmingham being down there with us at the moment, that this is a game that we will look at as targeting at least a point. However, I'm not meaning to be disrepectful to Birmingham as they are a big club (who isn't compared to us in this league) but I hope that because we have played really well in recent weeks, sometimes without getting anything, we don't get complacent, we have to turn up every week with no one either slacking or hiding.
It makes the job even harder with the injury list we have , and altho Birmingham are down there with us, they have won at Leeds and drawn at Brentford in the last couple of weeks so another tough game expected, although I do feel optimistic about getting something.
Good luck to both the team and the travelling supporters, take it one game at a time. UTM.

Afternoon all, this was always going to be a tough one. I think a few people thought it was going to be easy because of their position in the league but as someone as already said Birmingham have been playing quite well without getting more reward, a bit similar to us really. Perhaps it is just a game to far for our depleted squad.

CTMilller

Our ability to break and get the ball forward at speed is a joy to watch; our capacity for getting it across the line between the sticks isn't. Vassell on in the second half might help but it's a long climb back and, in terms of changing it up, we haven't really got the resources that, say, Stoke had in the same position.

We live in hope, though

wrinkly

We've lost our last 6 away games
We've not scored in the last 4
Our leading goalscorer is Proctor with 3, followed by Vaulks with 2 and Manning with 2 penalties.
I believe that we have only scored 1 goal this season from open play.
Stats suggest we have no chance of getting back into this game.
Come out fighting in the second half and hope for something - a couple of slices of luck wouldn't come amiss.

Seriously we have to start and shoot instead of trying to pass it in.

They don't deserve their two goal lead. Smithy needs the referee to protect him a little because they're targetting him and getting away with it.

Ajayi is turning into one of my all time favourite players for The Millers.

I think we'll see Vassell for Newell although I don't think Newell has finished here yet. I can see him getting one back. Don't know why but I think he'll get a goal.

This is the type of game where you need that bit of quality to unlock the door as we are matching them, all be it it sounds a very scrappy game but that bit of quality edges it in your favour. 3 - 0 game well and truly over.

Very much so Ronners. Clever at the dirty stuff. Smith didn't have a chance today and was only a foil for Vassell when he came on. They just kept us out especially when they took the lead.

Up until alf time we matched them and eventually they closed the game down pretty much by keeping Smith quiet. Some strange decisions given at one end but not at the other.

It's just clear that our squad isn't big enough.

Ah well! A couple of weeks off to recharge the batteries!

Disappointed today.
We seem to have played ok but just miss that clinical touch. Clinical touch in this division is expensive beyond our means. I don't know if there is a realistic solution.
Home form is good though and will need to keep that up and hope we can conjure something up away. A few lucky wins will do for me.
Players are doing all they can and Warney is getting the best out of them.
I hope it's good enough at the end of the day.
