Don Valley Stadium
8 August 2009
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.
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.
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.
The new boy in town who says he wants to score goals
Accrington will be without Andy Proctor in midfield as he is suspended. On loan striker, Billy Kee, from Leicester, could start with Alan Martin, Darren Kempson and Dean Winnard all set to play some part.
Was on loan with Bradford towards the end of last season so might have something to prove to his manager and the fans
Danny McDermid from Middlesex
The Millers are at Don Valley on Tuesday, 11th August against Derby County in the League Cup. Kick off is 7.45pm
