Rotherham vs Wigan preview
Last Updated: 08/02/19 11:33am
Rotherham will be without forward Kyle Vassell against Wigan as his groin injury rumbles on.
The Northern Ireland international has managed just three substitute appearances since the end of November and may need surgery to repair the ongoing problem.
Defender Sean Raggett (ankle) and midfielders Ryan Williams (hamstring) and Darren Potter (Achilles) are all back in training but the game could come too soon. Midfielder Ben Wiles is fit again after a calf injury and could feature.

Rotherham are winless in their last four league games against Wigan (D1 L3), failing to score in each of the last two.
Wigan have won five of their last seven away games at Rotherham in league competition (D1 L1), netting 16 goals in total in this run.
Rotherham have lost three of their last four home league games (W1), conceding two or more goals in each defeat.
Wigan are looking to win consecutive league games for the first time since September.
Rotherham have lost more points via goals conceded in the final 10 minutes of matches this term than any other Championship team (11).
Rotherham's Marek Rodák has made more saves than any other Championship goalkeeper (99).
This is a massive game for Rotherham. They won't have many better opportunities between now and the end of the season to claim a win at home.
We all know about Wigan's dreadful away form. They are the sixth best team in the Championship at home and the third worst on the road. I'll back Rotherham here.
