We know what to expect

15 February 2019

A full house, big away following, a derby and Rotherham fighting for their lives in the Championship..

All ingredients Steve Bruce feels will make for an intriguing and tough Championship clash at The New York Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

It’s an early kick-off against the Millers with the sides set to go head to head at 1.00pm and assessing the game and the challenge, Bruce told swfc.co.uk:

“The Championship in my experience is never an easy one.

“You can never predict it, it’s a remarkable division. There is a fine divide, there is no gulf.

“The game will be a sell-out, it’s never an easy place to go and with the way they play they will test you.

“We know what to expect but we have got a really wonderful travelling support and I believe we could have sold five times over given the opportunity.

“It’s a derby match and we’ll have to be ready for the challenge.”

Despite a strong comeback away at Hull in midweek, results elsewhere saw the Millers drop into the bottom three.

Paul Warne’s side have shown resilience in recent weeks with three consecutive draws going into tomorrow’s derby but on the other side of the coin, have posted just one win in 16 league outings.

“When you’re playing against teams who are fighting for their lives and then all of a sudden are in the relegation zone then I think you know what to expect.

“But then again I wouldn’t expect it to be any different for Rotherham against Sheffield Wednesday.

“He’s done a top, top job has Warney and I’m expecting a tough game - we all are.

“We must show the same resilience that we have in recent weeks and hopefully, we can take one or two of the chances we have been creating.”
