If we have any intentions of making the top two this is a must win especially with leeds away at the Vile.
After this game there is still HALF A SEASON left. There are no must wins at this stage.

They are not extremely poor at home though, they have only lost 1 game at home (to Hull back in August). They have lost 2 of the last 12 games (both away to Norwich and Blues) but have drawn 9 of those remaining 10 games, Swansea at home being the 1 victory. They have lost 3 more games than us so far this season.

I do think we will win but a draw wouldn't surprise me given their home form.

Indeed, their home form is very hard to beat - the stats don't lie.

I just found out that Billy Jones and Joe Mattock play for them too.

As you were! Play the team that is winning until it needs to be changed.   We are no Man City, able to rest Aguero because Sane and Jesus are available and we need to keep up momentum.   There will be some rotation between Mozza and Barry but that is more a case of necessity.

Barry can't be left out after his last 2 performances, and the cup game does matter. To me all games matter.

Barry could be more important in away games where we need him as an anchor.  Definitely start him this one.

You could try a pub or there are often still working men's clubs in that part of the wild north
Seriously all travelling Baggies have a great day out and come back safely with three more points and a few more goals

We have a fairly big side anyway but worth noting that Rotherham are excellent from set-pieces. If Moore is thinking of some rotation, having those better at defending set-pieces in today could be a contributing factor.

Rotherham have a good home record and a resilient team but make no mistake about it, if we want to be considered top-two and have automatic promotion aspirations, we must win this game. With Leeds having a tough game at Villa, that only adds to it for me.

Unchanged. Told you we wouldn't be resting players Jacko.

Only change from my bench (opening post) is Sako for Burke.

We’ve had over a weeks rest so why would he make any changes today? If he is going to make changes it’s going to be in the 3 games coming up

Against a draw specialist this is exactly the start we needed.  Now they have to come at us.

The 10000 dollar question is: Can we finally keep a clean away sheet?

A goal-mouth scramble almost saw Rotherham equalise. Hit the post and then cleared off the line by Dawson.

I hope we try and take control of the game now, instead of just pressing forward to try and get a second.

Men against boys here. We have so much quality in comparison and it is delightful to watch
