Rotherham United vs Wycombe Wanderers
Monday 5th April 2021, k.o. 3pm GMT
New York Stadium
Sky Bet Championship

Wanderers head north for the second game of their Easter weekend double-header looking to complete back-to-back victories, which would cut the gap between themselves and Rotherham to just two points.

Both promoted from League 1 last season alongside Coventry, the Chairboys and Millers met on the opening day of the Championship season and it was the visitors who snatched the points with a last-gasp winner at Adams Park.

They suffered late heartache at the weekend with Michael Smith's penalty being saved to deny them a point at Millwall, leaving Paul Warne's side 22nd but with three or four games in hand on the sides around them due to a series of weather and Covid-19 enforced postponements.

Gareth Ainsworth's men collected a third clean sheet in four games with Friday's excellent 1-0 triumph over Blackburn, and hope to repeat the success of arguably their most impressive triumph of their promotion-winning season: the 1-0 win at the New York Stadium in October 2019.

Last Time Out
Here are the highlights from that 1-0 win at Rotherham last season:

Team News
Dominic Gape was forced off with an injury on Friday and awaits news of the damage to his calf, but David Wheeler was involved in a small-sided game after full-time and could make the trip north after his lay-off.

Millers defender Richard Wood was sent off on Friday and sits out through suspension.

Kit
Wanderers will be in their regular home strip.

Man in the Middle
James Linington has shown 55 yellow and three red cards in his 25 matches in charge; he oversaw the reverse fixture at Adams Park in September, as well as the 2-2 draw at Preston and 3-0 home loss to Nottingham Forest.
