PREVIEW: Rotherham United v Hull City

A second successive Yorkshire derby in the Championship greets the Tigers this Tuesday evening, but already this particular fixture looks massive for both sides, given the nature of results for both clubs. Rotherham may well be able to hide behind adjusting to a new league, but City... no such luck. Must improve is the order of the day.

New York Stadium, eh?

Nigel Adkins has already wobbled just four games into the season, given his post match press conference following a home defeat to Blackburn Rovers last time out. Adkins, really isn't the problem here, it seems the City boss has now realised precisely who is. Stephen Kingsley misses out with concussion, meaning Jon Toral is favourite to replace the wing back. Reece Burke and Dan Batty should both come through fitness tests.

Home boss Paul Warne has seen his side collect three points from three games so far, but may consider changes for the Tigers' visit. Ryan Manning, Kyle Vassell and David Ball will all be pushing for starting places. For the stat-munchers amongst you, City have last 6 of their last 7 trips here (not winning since 1993) but Nigel Adkins has a 100% record as a manager against the Millers, winning all four of his past encounters against the hosts.
