Rotherham have also won their last seven at the New York Stadium. The Yorkshire side beat Accrington and Cheltenham 1-0 in their last two.

The strong winning run has put Paul Warne’s side six points clear at the top of League One with 15 games to play.

Defender Jordi Osei-Tutu could be in contention. 

Winger Mickel Miller and striker Will Grigg are also in contention after hamstring injuries. 

Wigan Form

Wigan recovered from recent losses to record back-to-back wins in League One. Away defeats at Stoke (2-0) and Sheffield Wednesday (1-0) were followed by home wins against Charlton (2-1) and Crewe (2-0).

Wigan were in control against League One strugglers Crewe with 20-6 shots and 55% possession. Callum Lang and James McClean were on target in the second half to seal the points. 

The Latics’ dropped points in recent weeks has allowed Rotherham some breathing space at the top of League One. Two draws and a defeat in their last five leaves Wigan in second place.

Midfielders Thelo Aasgaard, Scott Smith and Jordan Cousins are ruled out.
