Millers v Robins Preview

Rotherham United
vs.
Cheltenham Town

Don Valley Stadium

21 August 2010

3.00pm

Rotherham United entertain Cheltenham Town tomorrow afternoon at Don Valley with both sides having won one and drawn one in the league.

Vital Quotes:

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

Ref Watch:

P Tierney from Lancashire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers travel to Hereford on Saturday, 28th August 2010 with a 3.00pm kick off
