Conduct reminder

Sheffield Wednesday are reminding supporters of their conduct regarding the setting off of smoke bombs or flares at Owls fixtures, home or away. READ MORE HERE.

Exit details

Rotherham United have drawn up plans in conjunction with South Yorkshire Police to facilitate the safest possible exit strategy from the ground for all supporters leaving New York Stadium this evening.


Last season the club received a number of complaints about public order disruption following the local derby against Chesterfield and has therefore looked to make improvements for similar games.


At the end of tonight’s game against Wednesday, home fans will be directed towards Don Street whilst away supporters will exit via New York Way leading to Main Street.


These restrictions are anticipated to be in place for up to 20 minutes after the final whistle has blown.


Rotherham would like to thank all supporters for their co-operation and hope everyone enjoys this evening’s local derby.

Team news


Millers boss Steve Evans has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the cup tie.

Rotherham are set to give late fitness tests to strikers Danny Hytlon and Daniel Nardiello, who both missed the Miller’s opening League 1 fixture against Crewe.


Evans has said he will make changes to the side that fought back from 3-1 down against Crewe with four minutes left to play, to draw 3-3.

Defender Joe Mattock will have a scan on his knee to determine the extent of his injury at QPR on Saturday, but is not ruled out for Tuesday.

Reda Johnson (tendonitis) is back in training, although the game may come too soon for the Benin defender.


Lewis Buxton (shin splints) will miss out on the trip to the New York Stadium.

One to watch – Lee Frecklington



Millers midfielder Lee Frecklington began the season in lively fashion on Saturday, scoring twice on the opening day of the season against Crewe.

The ex-Peterborough man adds goals from midfield and played a key part in the club’s promotion from League 2 last season - chipping in with nine goals in all competitions.
