Following a luckless spell in charge of the League One-bound club since December, Leam Richardson was relieved of his duties at bottom side Rotherham earlier this week, with a familiar face returning to the New York Stadium as they hope to build a brighter future in the third tier.

After agreeing a suitable compensation fee with Stevenage, the Millers have been able to steal the services of Steve Evans from the Lamex Stadium, with the 61-year-old now back in South Yorkshire for his second stint at Rotherham after leaving Leeds United in September 2015.

The long-term focus of Evans will be on ensuring that Rotherham secure an immediate return to the Championship next season, but the Millers still have three second-tier matches before the campaign’s end, playing Birmingham this weekend before facing Britol City and Cardiff City.

Rotherham’s form leading up the sacking of Richardson was extremely poor, with the Millers scoring just twice and collecting just three points from their last 10 Championship matches, leaving them 21 points adrift at the bottom of the standings.

Any Birmingham supporters worried that Rotherham could be in line for a new manager bounce can be reassured by their record when Richardson took the reins in Yorkshire during the middle of December, with the Millers losing three straight games, conceding seven goals in the process.

Following a real low moment as they lost at home to Cardiff City on April 13, Birmingham produced a marvellous performance in front of a sold-out crowd at St Andrew’s @ Knighthead Park just three days later to secure a handsome three-goal victory over Coventry City last time out.

Perhaps with one eye on their FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United this weekend, Birmingham were well off the boil when they visited the Second City last Saturday and Blues took full advantage, with an own goal from Bobby Thomas prior to strikes from Ivan Sunjic and Jay Stansfield sealing maximum points.

The win over Coventry – coupled with both Huddersfield Town and Sheffield Wednesday dropping points – allowed Birmingham to move out of the relegation zone and into 21st place, but Blues are just one point ahead of the 22nd-placed Terriers with three games left to play.

Rotherham United Team News

Rotherham will be without the services of a number of former Birmingham players on Saturday, with both Grant Hall and Tyler Blackett sidelined due to hip and hamstring injuries respectively.

The Millers will also be unable to call upon the services of striker Jordan Hugill and midfielder Christ Tiehi, further limiting Evans’ options across the pitch.
