Rotherham have won 5 of their last 6 away games. Steve Evans will be desperate to get the points at Roots Hall and also be hoping his team perform better than mid-week v York in a “sub par performance”.
The midweek yorkshire derby ended all square after Nardiello’s last minute equaliser salvaged a point for the millers in a game they were largely expected to win. They are however unbeaten in four taking 10 points from 12- they look to be gathering some momentum.
Southend will need a result to keep on the coat tails of their fellow playoff contenders. They are 5 points off 7th placed Cheltenham after their 2-0 loss at strugglers Barnet. Assombalonga has been a key threat in a team that struggled to create.
