Rotherham vs Burnley by Hassy
Joey Barton will be hoping to make his full debut for Burnley. The former QPR captain made his debut as a second-half substitute in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Reading at Turf Moor but could now come into contention to start. Record signing Andre Gray missed out against the Royals after sustaining a hamstring injury against Derby and will continue to be assessed. Dean Marney (knee), Fredrik Ulvestad (ankle) and Kevin Long (knee) are in the latter stages of their rehabilitation, with Lukas Jutkiewicz, Ashley Barnes (both knee), Jason Gilchrist (ankle) and Daniel Lafferty (collarbone) long-term absentees.
Eric Black has been placed in temporary charge and will pick the side for this game with the club hoping to a new man in place after next week's international break. On Monday, the Millers parted company with manager Steve Evans despite two successive wins over Cardiff City and Birmingham City. A few weeks ago The Millers were anchored in the relegation-zone after going winless through their first seven games of the season. Since then, their back to back wins have moved them out of the relegation zone but reasons could be made for both wins. The Cardiff win was an injury time winner despite the fact Cardiff played for whole second half with ten men and the birmingham win, it could be argued was down to The Blue's; their usual energy and bite sapped by the huge cup derby at Aston Villa in midweek, which certainly helped the visitors' cause.
Black will also be definitely forced into one change as loanee Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe has returned to parent club Norwich after his month-long stay in South Yorkshire came to an end.
Put simply Burnley's likely starting line-up here should have too much quality for the managerless Millers and I'll be very disappointed if they don't take the three points back to Lancashire"
