History of the Shrewsbury Town v Rotherham United fixture

Rotherham face a trip to Shrewsbury Town at the Greenhous Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes in this fixture. The Millers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 14 and win only 6 of the 27 games over the years.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in December 2009, with Shrewsbury running out comfortable 2 - 0 winners in a League Two match.

Team News...
Shrews winger Lionel Ainsworth could return after recovering from a groin injury. Chris Neal continues in goal due to Ben Smith's lack of match fitness.

The Millers will be without loan defender Dean Holden who is ineligible to face his parent club tomorrow.

Johnny Mullins will deputise at right back and make his first league start, but on-loan striker Tom Elliott (hamstring) remains doubtful. Paul Warne looks set to get the nod upfront over Jeremiah Ani after he netted the winner at Hereford last week.

Ryan Taylor and Tom Pope are back in training but still a few weeks away from league action.
