BIG MATCH PREVIEW | ROTHERHAM UNITED (HOME)

15 September 2017

Two in-form sides are set to go head-to-head at the Northern Commercials Stadium this Saturday, as Stuart McCall's Bantams entertain Rotherham United in a mouth-watering Yorkshire derby.

Romain Vincelot's last-gasp equaliser at Oxford United on Tuesday made it four league games unbeaten for McCall's men ahead of the visit of Rotherham to Valley Parade this weekend.

Rotherham themselves are in good form as well coming into this game. The Millers' 5-1 drubbing of Walsall in midweek was their third win on the trot in Sky Bet League One.

Incredibly, both sides have netted a combined total for 17 goals between them in their last three league games, meaning we could be all set for a hugely entertaining encounter come Saturday afternoon.

Team News

Bradford City
Bantams boss Stuart McCall says City will have to monitor a couple of bumps and bruises within their squad ahead of the Rotherham match.

Adam Chicksen is expected to come back into the squad after missing Tuesday's trip to Oxford through suspension.

Timothee Dieng (calf) and Rouven Sattelmaier (hamstring) remain sidelined.

Rotherham United
Millers top scorer Kieffer Moore is a big doubt for this Saturday's match after limping off during Tuesday's Walsall win with a groin injury.

The 6' 5'' striker is believed to be rated as '50-50' at best to feature at the Northern Commercials Stadium.

Fellow attackers Jon Taylor (calf) and Ryan Williams (back) will be assessed pre-match but both are likely to start.

Shaun Cummings is definitely out with a hamstring injury, while Josh Emmanuel is ruled out due to a toe problem.

Former Bantams striker Jamie Proctor, now with the Millers, will miss out on a return to Valley Parade after unfortunately suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury at the end of last month.
