Championship strugglers Rotherham United host play-off chasing Hull City at the AESSEAL New York Stadium on Tuesday evening (19:45) looking to give themselves a chance of avoiding relegation to League One.

The Millers have failed to win a league match since Boxing Day and were beaten 3-0 by Leeds United on their last outing.

Hull have won two of their last three and will be eager to capitalise on Rotherham's poor form so that they can strengthen their promotion bid.

Team News

Rotherham remain without Shane Ferguson, Andre Green, Fred Onyedinma, Grant Hall, Cohen Bramall and Tyler Blackett due to injury.

Hull are without striker Liam Delap due to a knee problem, while Jean Michael Seri is yet to return having just won the Africa Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast.

Hull and both teams to score @ 3/1

With time running out and points getting much harder to come by, Rotherham need to start making their ground a fortress as they look to try and pull off a great escape or at least put up a fight.

Hull have been up and down in recent weeks but they're still firmly in contention to finish inside the top six. A victory on Tuesday could see them climb back into sixth and so there is more than enough motivation for them to put on a show here.

Their attacking quality outmatches that of their hosts, but they will have to be clinical with their chances. They were wasteful in their defeat to Swansea City at the weekend and they cannot afford that to happen for a second game in a row.

Hull should have the quality to get back to winning ways here, but their defence can be vulnerable, which Rotherham can exploit on home soil.

Jaden Philogene to score anytime @ 11/5

Being without star striker Delap has thrown a spanner in the works for the Tigers, but they do still have a strong enough squad to push for the play-offs without him. Aaron Connolly and Jaden Philogene have scored eight and seven goals respectively in the league, and they will both have huge roles to play in the next few months.

Philogene has recently returned to action from injury which has come as a huge boost for boss Liam Rosenior. He is still being eased back into regular match action but it shouldn't take long for him to rediscover his goalscoring form.

Tuesday's clash against bottom of the league will provide him with an excellent opportunity to get back on the scoresheet and he is certainly worth a punt.
