Aston Villa vs Rotherham: Lineups, live stream info and how to watch Championship online

Villa fans worldwide can tune into today’s action, as AVTV goes global - and that includes the UK! Here’s all you need to know ahead of Villa vs Rotherham

Aston Villa managed to steal a point at the death much to the frustration of a fairly capable Blackburn Rovers side on Saturday - and life comes at you fast in the Championship, so Villa really have a chance to build on that a move on in tonight’s match with Rotherham.

Rotherham, bouncing back from League One also have a huge chance to build on something - just a one-nil win over Derby County - so they’ll be looking at the occasion and will see a very beatable Villa side.
