Match Preview: Rotherham United v Norwich City

16 October 2020

League football returns following the season’s first international break as Norwich City travel to Rotherham United in the Championship on Saturday (3pm KO).

Our Match Preview takes a look at the Millers’ season so far, provides details on the referee taking charge of the game, and explains how supporters can follow the action live at home.

The opposition

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.

Rotherham were leading against both Birmingham City and Huddersfield Town in their two most recent fixtures, but conceded late equalisers to throw three points away on each occasion.

Manager Paul Warne will not be on the touchline for Saturday’s game after a member of his family tested positive for COVID-19.

Head-to-head

There have been 36 meetings between Rotherham and Norwich since 1960, resulting in 16 Norwich wins, nine Rotherham wins and eleven draws.

Last time we met, goals from Kenny McLean and Ben Godfrey saw Daniel Farke’s Canaries come away from South Yorkshire with a 2-1 win in the Championship.

Ref watch

David Webb will take charge of Saturday’s game, with Sam Lewis and George Byrne his assistants and Natalie Aspinall the fourth official.

Webb has seen over four games across the Championship, League One and the Carabao Cup so far this season, handing out eleven yellow cards in the process.

The last time he was appointed for a Norwich game was for our 3-1 Championship win away to Millwall in March 2019.
