Millers v Dale Preview
2 January 2010
Providing the game survives a 1030am pitch inspection, Rotherham United travel to Rochdale tomorrow for their first game of 2010.
The Millers have had their last three games postponed and, as top scorer, Adam Le Fondre, says the players are 'champing at the bit' to play.
Rochdale won their game on Monday and are top of the league with fifty-one points, which is twelve more than the Millers who have three games in hand.
Keith Hill - We'll give a lot of respect to Ronnie Moore and Rotherham but this is a game we are more than capable of winning. We are not fearful of any side.
Ronnie Moore - Keith Hill is doing a nice job and Rochdale are a nice footballing side.
