Team News: Rotherham United
Rotherham United boss Paul Warne will be grateful to have no fitness worries to speak of before this match with a completely healthy group ready to go.
Team News: QPR
From a largely healthy squad, there is just a single fitness issue for the QPR manager Mark Warburton to be concerned with. Luke Amos (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
Our feeling is that QPR and Rotherham United could well end up finding themselves level here, with both teams capable of netting.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. We’re therefore predicting a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 score draw at the end of this game.
