Millers v Cherries Preview

Rotherham
vs.
Bournemouth

Don Valley Stadium

2 Febraury 2010

7.45pm

With the groundsman at Don Valley working round the clock to get the pitch into the best possible condition the club are giving the thumbs up that the game will go ahead. Another postponement will further add to the backlog that the Millers already have to endure. With Bury beating Rochdale last night, they have now leapfrogged Rotherham into third place.
Usually the games between the Millers and Cherries is a tight affair and I think that will be the case this evening too.
Bournemouth come to Don Valley on the back of a 2-1 win over Crewe at Gresty Road on Saturday and four points and two places above the Millers

Vital Quotes:

Eddie Howe - On the back of the win, it is a game we should all look forward to. I believe in the players and believe we can go to a tough place and get a result.

Rotherham Team News:

The Millers have no injury worries apart from the long term victims, Andy Liddell and Paul Warne. The extra rest at the weekend will have helped Gavin Gunning, who, along with Marcus Marshall, has signed an extention to his loan, after he went off last Tuesday suffering a dead leg. New loan 'keeper, Jonathan Lund from Burnley, could well be on the bench.

Player to watch: Adam Le Fondre

Bumps and ice won't bother him - he loves to score at DV

Bournemouth Team News:

Eddie Howe is still waiting to see if the club have secured the services of Mustapha Dumbuya on loan from Doncaster Rovers. Defender, Marvin Bartley faces a race against the clock to overcome a shin injury picked up on Saturday. It could be that Eddie Howe is down to thirteen professionals and won't be able to name a full bench

Player to watch: Brett Pitman

Seems to score for fun

Ref Watch:

P Gibbs from the West Midlands

Next Fixtures:

The Millers travel to Darlington on Saturday
