Millers look forward to overtaking Charlton

Rotherham United are looking forward to overtaking Charlton in the Championship by taking all three points at The Valley tomorrow. They have strengthened their squad by bringing in right back Jack Hunt from Palace.

A calf injury makes Johnnie Jackson a doubtful starter for the Addicks, but new signing Christophe Lepoint is in the squad.

Rotherham have won five of the last six meetings, drawing the other. Charlton's last win was 2-0 at The Valley in the old Division Three in November 1980. Rotherham won the last meeting at The Valley 5-1 in the old Division Two in November 1982.

The Addicks have not won any of their last 11 games in all competitions, losing six of them. Their last win was 1-0 at Reading in the Championship on 8 November. They have not scored a goal in the league in five hours of play. They have not won any of their last seven home games in all competitions, losing three. Their last win at The Valley was 2-1 against Bolton in the Championship on 21 October.

However, the away form of the Millers is not great. The Millers have won only one of their last 12 away games in all competitions. Their only win on the road since August was 2-1 at Wigan in the Championship on 20 December. Does this look like another draw?

Odds are: Charlton 6/4, Draw 23/10, Rotherham 15/8. Referee Scott Duncan from Northumberland is unlikely to show any favours to southern softies.

The CAS Trust preview focuses on the Millers' manager combative charm merchant Steve Evans. However, Guy Luzon may be more than a match for him: CAS Trust Preview

I've been a season ticket holder for more than 15 years, but I can't think of a time when I have felt less like going to a home home. I didn't go to 3 home games after SCP left, but now feel even less attached to the "club" (busisness ? franise ?) than I do now.

Been going since 1960 BB. Was at 1982 game v Rotherham when Alan Simonsen played his first game.
Feel totally detached from the club now - might just as well support that French club in North London.
