Rotherham United vs. Cheltenham Town

Don Valley Stadium

Millers v Robins Preview

Rotherham United are getting ready for the 'big push' that could, if things go to plan, get them that much sort after, third spot in the League.
Cheltenham, on the other hand, are fighting to keep out of the bottom two.
Of the two teams, recent form has to favour the Robins. They went to Shrewsbury on Tuesday night and battled for a goalless draw while, the two games before that, have seen them trounce promotion hopefuls Bury and win away at Crewe.
While the Millers beat Northampton on Tuesday at Don Valley, that was their first win in five games.

Vital Quotes:

Ronnie Moore - Cheltenham are a tight and physically strong side and will be a constant threat up front
Mark Yates - The bottom line is we have to survive this season and the players over the last six weeks have made a big step towards that. We can give anyone a game in this division because we play with confidence and belief and I'll be demanding another good performance against Rotherham. I gather that there is about a quarter of the Don Valley pitch that is playable so, perhaps we'll play in that little bit.

Rotherham United Team News:

Moore will be without Danny Harrison who starts the first of a three match ban today. It is likely that Pablo Mills will move into Harrisons position of holding midfielder with Mark Lynch coming back into the team. Otherwise, I would think it's how you were from Tuesday night.

Player to watch: Kevin Ellison

He's here, he's there, he's every flippin' where - that's the Kevin Ellison we hope to see

Cheltenham Town Team News:

Michael Townsend is rated fifty/fifty but Mark Yates will welcome Matt Thornhill back into the squad, but he probably won't tinker about too much with his team

Player to watch: Justin Richards

Robins top scorer so far this season

Ref Watch:

GD Horwood from Bedfordshire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers travel to Barnet on Saturday, 24th April
