Millers v Shrimpers Preview
Don Valley Stadium
15 January 2011
Rotherham United take on Southend at Don Valley today with Ronnie Moore hoping to show Paul Sturrock that the Millers are better than they showed in the game at Roots Hall earlier on in the season.
The Shrimpers have only won one of their three games this year and are currently mid table while the Millers have got seven out of nine points in their last three games, scoring ten goals in those games.
Ronnie Moore - We were poor at Roots Hall and we owe them one.
Paul Sturrock - The games are coming thick and fast and it's always difficult coming off the back of two defeats but I'm pleased with the response,in training, from the players. I've reminded the players abut our win against Rotherham at Roots Hall and I'm expecting we'll put a performance together on Saturday.
Rotherham United Team News:
Ronnie Moore is set to name the same team that started on Tuesday at Stockport, although Mark Randall could come back into the side after having a rollicking from Moore over his non-show at Edgeley Park.
Player to watch: ADAM LE FONDRE
- not scored since 11th December and will want to put that right
Southend United Team News:
Paul Sturrock might be tempted to recall Rhys Evans in goal with Glenn Morris letting in three goals against Chesterfield. Matt Phillips could return, pushing out former Miller Graham Coughlan, after being out injured for over four months and Peter Gilbert could return to the starting eleven.
Player to watch: BARRY CORR
- scored three goals in the last three games and will want to continue.
