And here comes the worst part of being in the Championship: a league match that you can’t even find an illegal stream for. No one is televising this, so we’ll have trouble watching along. But never fear, we’ll still have you covered to watch as Aston Villa host Rotherham after a week of bitter disappointment.
Below you’ll find our usual resources of how to follow along (lucky you if you live within radio range of BBC WM), but we’ve enhanced our coverage a bit to give you everything in one place. You’ll find lineups when they’re announced and we’ve curated an Aston Villa live tweets list on twitter. It’s embedded below so you can follow along right from here.
And of course, drop into the comments to tell us your thoughts during the match. Without the television, we’ll surely need the company!

Kick-off time: 3 PM GMT, 10 AM Eastern, 7 AM Pacific
