Millers v Robins Preview

Managerless Rotherham United make their third ever trip to Cheltenham tomorrow for their League Two encounter. The Millers, who lie joint second in the table, will be hoping to get caretaker Manager, Steve Thornber his first win.
As they go into the game, The Robins hold the last play-off position in League Two, having won one of their last three games and drawn two

Vital Quotes:

Martin Allen - we need to concentrate on what we've been doing and keep pushing forward in our game
Steve Thornber - If we think we are going to defend for ninety minutes then we will get beaten. What we need to do is keep the ball and not give it away

Cheltenham Town Team News:

Elvis Hammond is fully fit and will be pushing for a starting place. Michael Pook, Shane Duff Oliver Bozanic will not feature

Player to watch: Barry Hayles

Experienced striker who got the winner against Bury last weekend

Rotherham United Team News:

Leading goalscorer, Adam Le Fondre, is a major doubt and Nicky Law is struggling. Ian Sharps could be back after injury and Tom Pope played sixty minutes of a reserve game earlier this week and could be included in the squad

Player to watch: Ian Sharps

If fit and on form no one will get by him

Ref Watch:

Paul Tierney from Lancashire
