RUFC - Pope Could Return

Rotherham welcome Burton to The Don Valley tomorrow afternoon hoping to bounce back from defeat last time out.

On-loan striker Tom Elliott - hamstring - is expected to miss out for The Millers, although another striker Tom Pope - broken metatarsal - should be included in the squad, and could return to the starting XI, after injury.

According to BBC Sport Burton manager Paul Peschisolido has said that Tony James will come into the defence in place of Nathan Stanton. After injury Ryan Austin could return although Adam Bolder - dislocated shoulder - is out of contention.

Someone that Peschisolido, as he told BBC Radio Derby, knows needs to be watched is Rotherham striker Adam Le Fondre: 'our back four has been solid and it's one of the reasons we have made a good start to the season.

'Rotherham are a team I expect to go up automatically and they have a goalscorer in Adam Le Fondre who we will have to watch because he is dangerous.

'They win games 1-0 because he gets an inch of space and utilises it, so we have to stop that happening.'

Many would expect this to be a closely fought game although what are your expectations of it?
