Millers v Rochdale preview

Rochdale
vs.
Rotherham

Spotland

14 March 2009

3.00pm

With both teams having good wins on Tuesday night, this could be a close and evenly run game.
Keith Hill's team beat Bradford at home 3-0 and the Millers went to Chester and came home with a resounding 5-1 victory.

Vital Quotes:

Keith Hill - To be honest, if not for the points deduction, which I think was fully justified, Rotherham would have probably been pushing for promotion now. Their squad is big and physical and in Mark Robins they have a good manager
Mark Robins - Rochdale deserve their position in the top three. They are an exciting young side with some intelligent lads up front

Rochdale Team News:

Will Buckley has declared himself fit although Gary Jones and Ciaran Toner are struggling. Chris Dagnall serves the last of his three match ban

Player to watch: Adam Le Fondre

Top scorer with 17 goals so far this season, Le Fondre joined Dale from Stockport.

Rotherham Team News:

Mark Robins has no fresh injury worries and will probably put out the same team that won on Tuesday night

Player to watch: Reuben Reid

Hat-trick hero from Tuesday and will surely want to prove it wasn't a 'one-off'

Ref Watch:

M RUSSELL from Hertfordshire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers play at Don Valley on Tuesday against Aldershot - kick-off is 7.45pm
