Millers v Robins Preview
Don Valley Stadium
21 August 2010
Rotherham United entertain Cheltenham Town tomorrow afternoon at Don Valley with both sides having won one and drawn one in the league.
Ronnie Moore - I thought we had the better chances last weekend at Morecambe although I think there were probably too many long balls in the first half.
I`m expecting a tough game against Cheltenham. They`ve been playing the diamond formation which is unusual for a second division club. They`ve got a bit of pace up front and we`ve got to take the game to them
Mark Yates - It should be a good game and I understand the pitch is in good order. Our aim is to get the ball down and play good football but we are also in the business of winning games. Rotherham have some good players and they also like to get the ball down. I don`t think I will be going with the midfield diamond this week
Rotherham United Team News:
Tom Elliott is hoping to be fit after struggling recently with a thigh strain. It`s doubtful that Ronnie Moore will have signed a new striker in time for tomorrow`s game so if Elliott doesn`t start then Marcus Marshall will play up front with Adam Le Fondre.
Player to watch: Tom Newey
An experienced and versatile defender who joined the Millers this summer
Cheltenham Town Team News:
Martin Riley won`t feature as he has a hamstring problem and either David Bird or Andy Gallinagh will take his place
Player to watch: Wes Thomas
Scored three league goals in two games after signing for the Robins in the summer
