Struggling Rotherham United, who are without a manager after recently sacking Matt Taylor, face a tough test on Friday night as they welcome Yorkshire rivals Leeds United to the New York Stadium.
Following a difficult set of results, which sees Rotherham rooted in the bottom-three of the Championship, the Millers are on the look out of for a new manager with names like Leam Richardson and Gary Rowett reportedly in the frame as the South Yorkshire side look to plot a great escape.
An interim team of Wayne Carlisle, Scott Brown and Dan Green will lead the Millers on Friday night, but they may be feeling like they need a miracle to come away with anything against a very strong Leeds United side.

It was a bit of a tumultuous summer for Leeds United, with a sizeable turnover of players, but Daniel Farke’s side have now firmly found their feet in the Championship and look set for a strong promotion bid.
In their most recent outing before the international break, a quickfire double from Daniel James and Joel Piroe in the first-half secured maximum points over Plymouth Argyle at Elland Road.
That was Leeds’ third straight win in the Championship and, with momentum firmly on their side, they will fancy their chances of making it four in a row on Friday night.
