    Rotherham United vs Brighton & Hove Albion *** Official Match Thread ***


    17 Not allowed!



    Rotherham v Brighton


    Sky Bet Championship

    Venue: AESSEAL New York Stadium
    Date: Tuesday 7th March 2017
    Kick-off: 19:45 GMT
    Referee: Geoff Eltringham
    Assistants: James Mainwaring, Nick Greenhalgh
    Fourth official: Christopher Kavanagh



    Rotherham captain Lee Frecklington (ankle) is likely to start after making his return from injury as a sub in the defeat by Aston Villa on Saturday.

    Goalkeeper Richard O'Donnell remains out with a hand injury.

    Brighton centre-back Shane Duffy (metatarsal) is out for six weeks, with Uwe Hunemeier in line to replace him.

    Left-backs Gaetan Bong (knee) and Sebastien Pocognoli (groin) are still sidelined, while centre-back Connor Goldson (heart) is out for the season.

    On-loan striker Chuba Akpom will be assessed.

    Despite having to deal with a host of defensive injuries, Albion boss Chris Hughton saw Liam Rosenior return to first-team action during Saturday's 3-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest following six months out with ankle trouble.

    The reverse at the City Ground meant Brighton suffered back-to-back league defeats for the first time since September, and the Seagulls are six points ahead of third-placed Huddersfield in the table, having played a game more than the Terriers.

    The Millers have won just one of their last 12 games in the Championship.

    MATCH FACTS

    • Rotherham have won only two of their last 10 league meetings with Brighton (D2 L6), scoring just five goals in this period.
    • The Seagulls have lost each of their last two away games at Rotherham in league competition - they have not lost three in succession against the Millers since 1961.
    • 16 of the 17 points (94.1%) that Rotherham have won in the Championship this season have come at home; a league-high proportion.
    • Brighton have lost their last two Championship games - they've not lost three in a row since January 2016, with the third defeat in that run coming against Rotherham.
