'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rotherham United vs. Crewe Alexandra

Don Valley Stadium

1 May 2010

3.00pm

Millers v Alex Preview

Rotherham United's last league game at Don Valley is against Crewe tomorrow.
The Millers need to, at least, draw tomorrow to make sure of their place in the play-offs which could lead to a day out at Wembley.
In their last three games Crewe have lost, drawn and won - winning convincingly last week against Accrington last week. They might have nothing to play for but Dario Gradi will want his team to carry on from last week.
It's 'Red Day' at Don Valley for Millers' fans tomorrow and Ronnie Moore will be hoping for all three points that might begin their road to Wembley

Vital Quotes:

Ronnie Moore - Crewe are a fantastic football side who have some good quality players in the side. But, I think if our centre backs can cope with Zola and Donaldson then that will go a long way to us winning
Dario Gradi - I am glad we are not going there for a game that is important. We will go there to try and play football and hopefully be a bit more direct as well

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers are hoping that 'keeper, Andy Warrington has recovered from a virus - he did train today so hopefully that was a good sign. Drewe Broughton is back in contention for a place and it is thought that Josh Walker will be fit to play and Stephen Brogan and Andy Liddell played in the mid-week reserve game so could be in contention

Player to watch: Kevin Ellison

After scoring the only goal last weekend will want to keep that up

Crewe Alexandra Team News:

John Brayford is likely to keep his place as centre-half but Byron Moore is rated very doubtful. Mat Mitchel-King, James Bailey and Steve Schumacher are all fit.

Player to watch: Calvin Zola

Joined The Alex in the summer of 2008 and is their top scorer this season

Ref Watch:

RJ Booth from Nottinghamshire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers final league fixture will be next Saturday, 8th May at Hereford. Kick Off is 3.00pm and is Ticket Only for Millers Fans
