Match preview

"After coming up from League One at the first time of asking at the end of last season, Paul Warne’s Rotherham United have had a decent start to life back in the second tier.

“One win, two draws and one defeat from the opening four league games put the Millers perfectly mid-table in the Championship, but the nature of those results will have been some cause for concern.”

Daniel Farke: Football is a game for the fans

“We have to trust the experts and be careful,” he said. “If it's the right thing to play without fans we have to accept it. I don't like it because they're such an important part and it still feels strange behind closed doors.

“Everything worked well during our pilot project of allowing fans in, but I just hope that step by step we return to normality as soon as possible. Football is a game for fans and it should be fun for everyone involved.”

The boss spoke about fans returning to stadia among a number of topics at his pre-match press conference.
