RUFC - Who Would Be In Your Starting Eleven Tomorrow

RUFC - Who Would Be In Your Starting Eleven Tomorrow

Rotherham United haven't won a league game throughout November and tomorrow is our last chance to put that right. Our last win was mid-October when Scunthorpe United were in town so we are definitely 'due' one.

We haven't been playing that badly it just doesn't seem to be gelling the way it did at the beginning of the season, though, of course, you have to think about the opposition we have played.

And it's another tough one tomorrow with Wigan Athletic coming to the New York Stadium.

So, if you was the Millers Manager how would you play tomorrow?

Well, firstly we need goals - the ball is getting to Kieffer Moore who is heading it on but there's very rarely anyone up with him to take advantage of it. I know I've said this before but I'd definitely start with two up front tomorrow - Moore and probably David Ball.

Once again we have a choice of goalkeepers to put in - Richard O'Donnell has been in since Marek Rodak went on international duty (although the only clean sheet of the month was actually from Lewis Price, who, unfortunately, is on the injured list with a broken finger). So who would you start tomorrow? I think Warney will stick with O'Donnell (but I think he might have done better with Shrewsbury's second goal last weekend?).

Michael Ihiekwe is back from suspension and I'd put his straight back in the starting eleven but who beside him? Richard Wood has been the obvious choice and I do feel we need an old head in there but has he been looking at his best recently? At the start of the season I'd have probably suggested giving hi a rest and putting Semi Ajayi in there but he doesn't seem to have taken to League One as well as he did the Championship. At left back I'd have Joe Mattock and then it's a toss up between Shaun Cummings and Josh Emmanuel at right-back.

I'd like to play two wingers - Joe Newell and then it would be either Ryan Williams or Anthony Forde. BUT I'd also like to see Richie Towell get a start.

Obviously Lee Frecklington, providing he's fully recovered, and Darren Potter will start in midfield.

So after I've mused over this a while, dithered and meandered, weighed up the . . . . OK, thought for a few minutes my starting eleven would be

Rodak

Cummings
Ihiekwe
Wood
Mattock

Newell
Potter
Frecklington

Towell

Ball
Moore
