Match Preview: Pompey v Rotherham

Everything you need to know about League One clash

26 November 2019

Pompey v Rotherham

There is mixed news for Pompey fans ahead of a hectic run of fixtures between now and the start of 2020.

Six of the next seven games – which leads us up to Boxing Day – take place at Fratton Park, where no opposition team has managed to claim three points this term.

But four of those fixtures are in League One and come against the sides currently occupying the top four places.

Clashes with Peterborough, Ipswich and Wycombe follow in December after this evening’s visit from Rotherham.

The Millers – who have former Fratton boss Richie Barker acting as manager Paul Warne’s assistant – have won four of their past five games.

That run included a memorable triumph at MK Dons on Saturday, as United battled back from a two-goal deficit to claim the spoils.

It leaves them sitting nicely in fourth spot, having claimed six more points than Pompey, albeit playing one match more.

Rotherham were relegated from the Championship last term, but won both meetings with the Blues during the previous campaign.

The hosts will have happier memories of their clash in April 2013, when a 3-2 success secured the Division One title.

Kenny's Injury Update: Rotherham (H)

TEAM NEWS
Pompey have no new injury concerns, with everyone coming through Saturday’s win at Rochdale unscathed.

Sean Raggett (adductor) could return at the weekend, but Ross McCrorie (hamstring) and skipper Tom Naylor (hamstring) are still at least a week away.

Jack Whatmough has returned to training following a serious knee problem, although needs a reserve game before being considered, while Bryn Morris (groin) is also out.

Michael Smith could feature for the visitors against his former club, but ex-Fratton loanee Joe Mattock (back) is missing.
