Rotherham vs Norwich preview
Last Updated: 14/03/19 6:07pm
Rotherham will be without Joe Mattock for the visit of Sky Bet Championship leaders Norwich.
Left-back Mattock picked up his 10th booking of the season in the 2-1 win at QPR in midweek so will now serve a two-match ban. He joins Will Vaulks on the suspension list, with the midfielder, who has been called up to the Wales squad, still having two games to serve.
Midfielder Joe Newell is a doubt with a dead leg, while defender Clark Robertson is struggling with a hamstring injury and remains a likely absentee, along with Kyle Vassell (groin) and Jamie Proctor (hip).
Norwich head coach Daniel Farke, who has signed a new contract, must decide whether to make changes having named the same starting XI for the fifth straight match for the 3-2 win over Hull on Wednesday. Midfielders Moritz Leitner and Mario Vrancic are both pressing for a recall following their recent return to full fitness.
Louis Thompson has stepped up his rehabilitation from a knee problem, so could be drafted back into the squad, but the midfielder is more likely to be in contention again following the international break. Forward Carlton Morris (ankle) also continues his recovery.
Rotherham have won just two of their last 22 matches against Norwich in all competitions (D10 L10).
Norwich have won just one of their last 11 league visits to Rotherham (D4 L6), a 3-1 win in September 1967.
Rotherham are looking to win consecutive Championship matches for the first time since April 2016, when they beat Ipswich and Leeds under Neil Warnock.
Since drawing 0-0 with Hull City in November, Norwich have scored in all 18 of their Championship games, scoring 43 goals - seven more than any other team in that time.
Emiliano Buendía has been involved in 10 goals in his last 10 Championship appearances for Norwich City (4 goals, 6 assists).
Rotherham defender Semi Ajayi has scored six Championship goals in his last nine Championship appearances - one more than he scored in his previous 101 Football League appearances (5, including play-offs).
What a massive win that was for Rotherham in midweek. Semi Ajayi has been fantastic for them this season and he was brilliant again as his double sealed their first away win of the season.
Norwich are flying, though. Five wins on the spin and they look well on track for automatic promotion. It's hard to see Rotherham stopping them.
David Prutton predicts: 0-2 (15/2 with Sky Bet)
