World News – GB – Rotherham United vs Norwich City preview: how to watch, kick-off time, lineups scheduled and those to watch


Norwich City have visited New York Stadium four times since it opened in 2012, but their trip there this weekend will be quite different as they face Rotherham United behind closed doors

Following the recent international break, Rotherham have the choice between a perfectly fit squad of players Millers’ debut could go to Dan Barlaser, who signed on loan from Newcastle United earlier this month, and Florian Jozefzoon , who joined the club on a season-long loan from Derby County on Thursday

Norwich is set to go without winger Onel Hernandez for 10 to 12 weeks, with the Cuban having recently undergone minor surgery after sustaining an adductor injury Plus, full-back Sam Byram is still sidelined as he continues to recover from a hamstring issue

German defender Christoph Zimmermann will miss the trip to New York stadium with a calf injury, while Marco Stiepermann and Todd Cantwell have slight injury doubts In more positive news for the Canaries, the Polish Under-21 international Przemyslaw Placheta is back in training and should be part of the squad of the day

Despite the start of the new league campaign with victories on day one, these two teams have found things more difficult in the second level since

Rotherham is winless in his last three league games but has suffered just one loss, inflicted by Millwall on September 19 The Millers led Huddersfield Town for more than an hour in their final game, but were denied the win in the sixth minute of stoppage time when Angus MacDonald found his own net

Many Norwich fans believed they had crossed a milestone by beating Huddersfield on September 12 to claim their first league win since February However, their most recent results have been poor, with back-to-back 1-0 defeats to Bournemouth and County Derby

One of Rotherham’s key transfers this summer was the addition of young striker George Hirst, who joined Leicester City on a season-long loan in September

It is understood that the great striker is highly rated by his parent club, and the 21-year-old has added pressure on his shoulders due to the fact that he is the son of former England international David Hirst

So far this quarter, Hirst junior has made three appearances for the Millers, but has yet to open his red-and-white account Given Norwich’s obvious defensive weaknesses, he will be particularly eager to score his first championship goal Saturday

Norwich’s most expensive signing of the transfer window was Jordan Hugill, 28, who arrived from West Ham United for £ 26 million and more future add-ons

The arrival of the physical striker has helped improve the Canaries’ attacking options, but it has been used sporadically so far, with three substitute appearances in the league, which equates to just 16 minutes played in total

Teemu Pukki has started every second tier game instead of Hugill so far, but after Fin missed a penalty the last time against Derby, there’s a chance Daniel Farke will consider a change to the before

These two teams last met in March 2019, when Norwich left South Yorkshire with all three points thanks to a 2-1 away win Center-back Ben Godfrey – who left Norfolk to join Everton in a club record sale less than two weeks ago – scored the game-winning goal for the Canaries that day

At the end of the 2018/19 league season, Norwich was promoted to the Premier League and Rotherham was relegated to League One, but a year later they find themselves in the same division again

The Miller’s recent record in this game is very poor; they’ve tasted victory in just one of their last 17 games against the Canaries

This game kicks off at 3pm on Saturday 17th October and is not on TV, but is available to watch on « iFollow Millers » or « iFollow Norwich », with a match pass costing £ 10

Rotherham manager Paul Warne will not be in the canoe at home on Saturday as he is currently self-isolating after a family member tested positive for COVID-19 at his press conference pre-game, he explained how unique the experience should be for him

Warne said, « I’m obviously going to watch it on iFollow Millers and have a live link from the bench. It’ll be pretty good, I think if I wasn’t so vocal on the pitch side I would love to handle from higher You get a good angle of play and probably a different perception of ground level

« Obviously not being there isn’t ideal, but I have a lot of confidence in my staff It’s surreal playing Norwich without a crowd and obviously without being in the dugout, but it’s all about the guys , not from me We want to take them to a level where they can give Norwich a good game I can’t wait to be there and it should be a really good test

« Norwich were a Premier League team just a few months ago so we are well aware of the enormity of the challenge but I have no doubts that we can go along with them and if we take our chances we will have a great chance « 

Meanwhile, Norwich head coach Daniel Farke has revealed his frustrations with the busy schedules some of his players have faced over the past two weeks as they represented their country

He told reporters: “It seems difficult for players to steal more during international breaks It’s strange to fly for friendlies Five of my players were out until Thursday, like Teemu [Pukki] and Adam [Idah]

« It’s always hard to sleep after a game You can imagine what time they had to get up to go back to Norwich and then go to Rotherham

« The good thing is that all COVID results have come back negative They seem in good shape and in a good mood, but we will have to make late decisions on who plays tomorrow »
