Rotherham United

Roots Hall

30 October 2010

3.00pm

Rotherham United make the long trip to Roots Hall tomorrow to take on Southend United.
Both sides will want to bounce back from defeats last week, Southend losing one-nil at Bury while the Millers lost four-three to Wycombe at Don Valley

Vital Quotes:

Tommy Widdrington - Rotherham are a team in confident mood and while we know they can score goals they can also concede them. We've been working on a little bit more cunning in and around the box in training this week and we work very hard on set-pieces.
Ronnie Moore - We've got to go to Southend full of confidence because some of the attacking play we had on Saturday was fantastic. Southend's performances are going well but they are under a bit of pressure because results aren't going for them and so it's a winnable game for us. We've got to get back to being rock solid and one-nillers will do me.

Southend United Team News:

Southend have Bilel Mohsni back after a three match suspension (the centre-half who Ronnie Moore would have liked to bring in last year. Waide Fairhurst (on loan from Doncaster Rovers) has a back problem and is a doubt but it will probably be too early for Craig Easton. Sofienne Zaaboub could be back after a groin injury but Adam Bouzid has returned to France after having skull surgery

Player to watch: BILEL MOHSNI

French player who will want to make his mark after being out for three weeks

Rotherham United Team News:

Skipper Ryan Cresswell is a major doubt with a back spasm meaning Luke Ashworth will probably deputise again. Nick Fenton and Ryan Taylor played in the Reserves in mid-week and will probably be on the bench. It is thought that new loanee, Mark Randall, from Arsenal, will be in the starting eleven.

Player to watch: EXODUS GEOHAGHON

His final game for the Millers before he returns to Peterborough. Has improved with each game and will want to leave the fans with something to remember him by
