Todd Cantwell misses out on Norwich City’s battle at Rotherham with a knock picked up in training, as Daniel Farke makes three changes to his starting XI.

Grant Hanley makes his first appearance since March, with Christoph Zimmermann missing out with a minor calf knock, starting alongside Ben Gibson in central defence for the first time.

Adam Idah starts on the left with Onel Hernandez ruled out until January by a groin injury and Jordan Hugill starts up front, with Teemu Pukki starting on the bench after his international action with Finland.

The hosts also make three changes from their 1-1 home draw with Huddersfield prior to the international break, with Clark Robertson, Mickel Miller and Dan Barlaser coming in for George Hirst, Joe Mattock and Kieran Sadlier.

The Millers are a point and six places higher in the early Championship table, with five points from their opening four games after promotion from League One.
