Millers v Stanley

Rotherham United welcome Accrington Stanley to Don Valley on Saturday for the first game of the 2009/10 season.

The Millers won their last two pre-season friendlies, one against a Manchester City XI and the against non-league Emley.

Accrington recently played Blackburn Rovers at the Fraser Eagle Stadium in a friendly and lost 3-0.

Vital Quotes:

Mark Robins - John Coleman has done a good job at Accrington and his teams always work hard. They are a difficult side to break down.

John Coleman - We`ve been trying to build on an ethos this year, our buzzword has been expectation and trying to raise the players` expectations. Some of the media thinks we will be also rans this year and we are determined to prove them wrong.

Rotherham Team News:

The Millers will start this season without striker Drewe Broughton who has a broken toe and Dale Tonge who is suspended. Andy Liddell, who is on a months deal with the Millers, is also struggling to be fit.
