BOTH the Millers and Leeds United head into Friday night's Yorkshire derby's game in good fettle — and the home side will kick off as favourites, according to the bookies.

Leeds' new boss Darko Milanic is yet to taste success since taking over from caretaker Neil Redfearn earlier this month.

But the Millers can leap-frog the visitors with a win at the New York Stadium and are another side in good heart, having held title favourites Norwich City at Carrow Road a fortnight ago and having one defeat in their last six.

With home advantage Steve Evans' side look an excellent price at 11/10 with BetVictor to claim a fourth win of the season. Leeds are 13/5 and the draw 12/5.

Both home successes in the Championship have seen clean sheets for Rotherham and keeper Adam Collin is 8/5 to keep another.

Former Leeds striker Luciano Becchio misses out on a reunion with his former club after being ruled out for three months with a broken ankle and likely to be a massive loss after netting two goals in his last three games. Paul Green netted from the penalty-spot to take a share of the spoils against the Canaries and he looks the value to fire the Millers to victory; he's 14/1 to score the opener and 5/1 to score in consecutive games with BetVictor.
