Rotherham (14) v Brentford (15)

Rotherham will welcome Richie Smallwood and Anthony Wordsworth back into the squad, but Paul Taylor is a doubt with a virus.

All three were cup-tied for the Capital One Cup defeat at Swansea in midweek and, while Smallwood and Wordsworth should return to Steve Evans’ starting XI, Taylor’s condition will be monitored.

Tony Craig returns to the Brentford squad after missing their midweek cup defeat against derby rivals Fulham through suspension.

Scott Hogan made his Bees debut as a sub against the Cottagers, having recovered from an ankle injury, so he should be involved again.

Last season: Brentford 0 Rotherham 1, Rotherham 3 Brentford 0.

Top scorers (all competitions): Ben Pringle, Ryan Hall and Matt Derbyshire (Rotherham) 1; Stuart Dallas (Brentford) 3.

Match odds: H 5-4 A 2-1 D 11-5

Referee: Stuart Attwell (Warwickshire)
