If Carlos Corberan’s team defeats the Millers this evening, they would move up to fifth place in the Championship standings and nine points clear of Coventry City, who are now in seventh place.

The Baggies won 2-0 in their rematch with these two teams. They won the previous game thanks to goals from Wallace and Grady Diangana, and they will be looking to defeat their opponents tonight to complete the league double.

News about the West Brom team

According to Birmingham World, the Baggies are undoubtedly missing three players from the roster and are also doubtful for this evening’s match at the Hawthorns.

Jayson Molumby, Daryl Dike, and Martin Kelly all out for the rest of the season; Kelly hasn’t played a single game this season.

Josh Maja is getting closer to a return and is in light training, although he is unlikely to be ready to face Rotherham.

Matt Phillips has made a couple of substitute appearances in recent weeks and is making steady progress. He may not be ready to start just yet but he could be involved in some capacity.

Starting XI

Palmer (GK)











The most likely candidate to stay at the head of the line is Brandon Thomas-Asante, although Wallace and Johnston should hold onto their positions because of their recent contributions.

Against the Millers, Diangana could assume the center offensive role that he played in the previous game. Nathaniel Chalobah and Yann M’Vila might form the midfield duo in the deeper roles.

Since M’Vila has only made three replacement appearances thus far, starting tonight against this opponent would make the most sense.

In order to give Conor Townsend a break, Adam Reach might start at left back, while Darnell Furlong will probably stay at right back. Cedric Kipre and Semi Ajayi may start at center back, with more rotation anticipated while facing the Millers.
