PREVIEW: Sky Blues head to Rotherham

Mark Robins and his players head to South Yorkshire in the Championship...

15 February 2023

The Sky Blues are back on the road this weekend, as they make the trip to the New York Stadium to face Rotherham United.

Meet the Millers:

Rotherham United head into this weekend’s clash, sitting narrowly above the relegation zone in the Championship.

After a bright start to the campaign, Paul Warne departed the New York Stadium and was replaced by Matt Taylor.

Taylor has been handed the task of trying to keep the Millers in the division for the first time since 2015.

Rotherham recruited in January to help their fight for survival, bringing in Championship experience in the form of Jordan Hugill and Sean Morrison, as well as Premier League loanees, Conor Coventry and Tariqe Fosu.

"I know the Club well, I was there as both a manager and a player, and they have had plenty of success. They're a Club that are always on the front foot, that's for sure."
