Rotherham United vs. Chester City

Don Valley Stadium

23 August 2008

3.00pm

Millers take on Chester

With the Millers winning two out of two and City losing two out of two this game looks like it should be a home win. But, as somebody once said, 'football's a funny old game.'

Rumour has it that City boss, Simon Davies, could be heading for the dole office if they suffer another heavy defeat at Don Valley tomorrow. Davies took over in March when ex Miller Bobby Williamson was sacked and seems to have found the step up from Youth Coach to first team Manager difficult. Wayne Allison has arrived at the Deva Stadium to assist in coaching duties

Meanwhile, Millers Manager, Mark Robins, has got off to a winning start and up to -11 but he has warned his players this week about complacency

Vital Quotes:

Mark Robins - Chester gave us two difficult games last season and I'm not expecting anything less from them tomorrow

Stephen Vaughan, City Owner - Hopefully Simon (Davies) will get his tactics right and we will get some points on the board. We have forty-five games to go and, although my aspirations are to get into the play-offs, the first thing is to get fifty-six points on the board.

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers could be without Pablo Mills and Marc Joseph who both have a virus. Mark Burchill could be back in contention after playing ninety minutes in the reserves in mid-week and scoring a goal.

Player to watch: Mark Lynch

scorer of two great goals last weekend and could now have got the taste!

Chester City Team News:

City don't have a recognised striker, which could be the reason they haven't got any goals this season so far. Kevin Ellison and Ryan Lowe have been filling in up front. Although it could be that Eddie Johnson, who has been training with City, could be handed his debut if the signing can be pushed through on time.

Player to watch: Kevin Ellison

quick winger with eye for goal
