The Millers – manager by boyhood City supporter Warne – are unbeaten in their last three home games; their last home defeat coming against Leeds in January.
It is the one remaining international break of the campaign that follows, before City sign off for March with a tough trip to Tony Pulis’ fellow promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough (March 30, 5.30pm).
Just seven fixtures then remain, with City hosting QPR and Reading to kick-off April.
