Daniel Farke has named an unchanged starting line-up for a sixth successive match, as Norwich City chase a sixth successive victory when they take on Rotherham this afternoon.

The Canaries are looking to build on home wins over Swansea and Hull, which kept them top of the table, with Kenny McLean continuing in central midfield alongside Tom Trybull.

Norwich would go four points clear at the top with victory, after Leeds were beaten 1-0 by promotion rivals Sheffield United at Elland Road in the early kick-off, moving the Blades up to second and just a point behind Norwich

THE LOWDOWN: Rotherham United v Norwich City

The Millers are battling relegation and boosted their hopes hugely on Wednesday when Semi Ajayi scored a late winner at QPR, in the fifth minute of injury-time.

The victory left them third from bottom and still in the drop zone but level on points with Wigan and Reading above them, and a point adrift of Millwall.

OPPOSITION VIEW: Warne has Millers in good form ahead of Norwich City visit

Managed by former Diss and Wroxham forward Paul Warne, a boyhood Canaries fan, the hosts have only lost one of their last eight matches and have only lost four of their home league games this season.

The Millers make three changes and only name six substitutes as Ryan Williams has had to pull out late on due to his girlfriend going into labour.

NORWICH: Krul; Aarons, Zimmermann (C), Godfrey, Lewis; Trybull, McLean; Buendia, Stiepermann, Hernandez; Pukki. Subs: McGovern (GK), Hanley, Klose, Leitner, Vrancic, Cantwell, Rhodes

ROTHERHAM: Rodak; Vyner, Ihiekwe, Wood (C), Jones; Ajayi; Forde, Crooks, Wiles, Newell; Smith. Subs: Price (GK), Taylor, Palmer, Towell, Kayode, Yates
