Millers v Shakers Preview

Bury
vs.
Rotherham United

Gigg Lane

2 October 2010

3.00pm

Rotherham United travel over the border to take on Bury tomorrow afternoon in a third verses fifth with just three points between them.

Both Bury and Rotherham have won two and drawn one of their last three games - both having won four-one away from home.

Vital Quotes:

Alan Knill - Rotherham are probably favourites to go up and it's going to be a tough game but if we relax more then we are dangerous. Rotherham should be in the top six because when they've paid the money they did for a striker who is top scorer every year and taken our centre-half and our left-back, offering him more money than we could give him, they are stating their intentions and if you are paying out that sort of money then you should be top of the league

Ronnie Moore - It will be a tough game. Alan Knill has got them playing 4-2-3-1, which was played a lot in the World Cup, which gives them options going forward. But we have ways of breaking that down

Bury Team News:

Alan Knill's only doubts are striker Andy Bishop, who is suffering from tendonitis of the knee and Damien Mozika who has a throat infection. Steven Schumacher is set to keep his place in midfield and Peter Sweeney is now fit and could also go straight into the team while Nicholas Ajose, on loan from Manchester United, could get a start

Player to watch: NICHOLAS AJOSE

On loan from Manchester United and set up two of the four goals against Morecambe

Rotherham United Team News:

Ronnie Moore will have Ryan Taylor back in the squad, after a surprise return on Tuesday night. Marcus Marshall is likely to miss out after pulling a hamstring in the warm-up on Tuesday. Moore will probably start with the same side that drew nil-nil with Bradford although Mark Bradley could well get a start

Player to watch: RYAN CRESSWELL

The Rotherham skipper will want to do well against the side he left for the Millers

Ref Watch:

GJ Sutton from Lincolnshire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers go to Burton on Wednesday for the next round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy. Kick off is 7.30pm
