Last game of the season preview
Don Valley Stadium
2nd May 2009
With Exeter looking to clinch promotion and Rotherham looking to show the FL what could have been, there could be a bumper crowd for the final game of the season at Don Valley tomorrow afternoon.
Although, in reality, the Millers have nothing to play for they could still make a difference in the play-offs with both Exeter and Bury needing a win for one of them to make the last automatic promotion place. Mark Robins has been drilling it into his players that this is an important game for them and that they aren`t yet sat on the beach.
Exeter have to be applauded, I feel, as they strive to make this their back to back promotion after coming up from the Blue Square Premier League last season and with them having four wins in their last six games they must be odds on to win this encounter. But, they haven`t yet played on the windy, bumpy Don Valley pitch.
Mark Robins - Paul Tisdale has done a remarkable job at Exeter but we are trying to finish a job here and we don't want to host anyone elses promotion party
Paul Tisdale - We know Rotherham are a good side. I am convinced they will be a tough team to play.
Rotherham United Team News:
Mark Robins could play the same team that lost at Bradford last Saturday although long term injury victim, Stephen Brogan has been included in the side
Player to watch: Reuben Reid
Will probably like to score against his ex rivals Exeter
Exeter City Team News:
Marcus Stewart is rated as only 50/50 to start the game although he has returned to training this week.
Player to watch: Stewart Fleetwood
Millers fans will remember Stewart from his Forest Green Days.
He is currently on loan from Charlton and has scored three goals in six games.
