Millers take on Imps

Rotherham
vs.
Lincoln

Millmoor

23rd February

3pm

Rotherham will be hoping to get back to winning ways tomorrow against a Lincoln City team who will be looking for their sixth straight league win. The Millers players will be trying to put off field problems behind them as they try to get all three points to keep in touch with the teams at the top of the league.
Peter Jackson, City's manager, has been diagnosed with throat cancer but he is expected to be at Millmoor tomorrow and Vital Rotherham want to wish him well.
Our game at Sincil Bank last month saw Derek Holmes score a hat-trick in a Millers 3-1 win.

Vital Quotes:

Mark Robins - This will be a test for us because they are a very good side and they have good players who have experience. I'm sure our supporters will get behind us.
Peter Jackson - We've had a fantastic couple of weeks but now it's time to show just how good we are. I know they won't be looking forward to Lincoln, and their strong following, coming. Saying that, it will be another difficult game

Rotherham Team News:

Ian Sharps is back in contention for a starting place after missing the one-nil loss at Wycombe due to illness. Apart from broken leg victim, Stephen Brogan and reserve goalkeeper, Steven Cann, the Millers are without injury worries

Player to watch: Peter Holmes

If he plays he will come up against one of his former teams, after being on loan to the Imps last season and would surely want to do well against them

Lincoln Team News:

The visitors will be without Lee Frecklington, Jamie Hand and Ryan Amoo due to injuries although Louis Dodds is available after serving a suspension last weekend.

Player to watch: Jamie Forrester

an experienced striker who has scored eight league goals for the Imps this season

Ref Watch:

Nigel S Miller from Co Durham

Next Fixtures:

The Millers are away at Bradford on Tuesday, 26 February in the re-arranged league game. Kick off 7.45pm
