After gaining their first victory of the season, Brighton will be looking to pick up another 3 points on Tuesday when they welcome Rotherham to The AMEX.
After a flying start to the season for Rotherham, where they went 2-0 up in the first game at home to Wolves, they have slipped up after eventually drawing that game, as well as being dumped out of the EFL Cup by League Two Morecambe, before being hammered away by Villa on Saturday. New signing Izzy Brown could make his debut after joining on loan from Cherlsea, while Albion midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey will be missing as he cant play against his parent club. Danny Ward and Will Vaulks have both scored 1 each, and are joint top scorers.

FACT; Rotherham lost 14 games last year away from home, scoring 22 goals and conceding 37.
David Stockdale is likely to miss the game after picking up an injury on Friday night, which means Niki Maenpaa will be handed his league debut. Chris Hughton will likely name near enough the same outfield 10 from Friday, with a few likely to be missing due to the fixture congestion. Glenn Murray’s brace on Friday has put himself into Brighton’s top scoring position, and will be looking for more Tuesday night.

FACT; 34 times last season was there a goal before half-time in Brighton’s league matches.
Last Time We Met; RUFC - BHAFC (12/1/16)
Danny Ward and Matt Derbyshire scored in the 2-0 win back in January, a game which was the end of a barren 7 game winless streak for the Seagulls.
Of the 49 games played, both teams have won 17 times, with Rotherham only losing once in the last 5 games (September 2015).
