Millers v Shrews Preview
Don Valley Stadium
19 February 2011
Ignoring the snow falling outside, we shall carry on with the match preview!
It's third verses two this afternoon at Don Valley when Shrewsbury Town, who are one point and one place above the Millers.
After losing their last five away from home, Ronnie Moore saw his side lose yet again at Oxford on Saturday but they bounced back on Tuesday against Accrington, winning two-nil.
The Shrews, meanwhile, have had five wins on the bounce including winning their last two away from home, beating Lincoln City five-one and Southend two-nil
Ronnie Moore - We know it's going to be tough but the incentive is that we could go into second place
Graham Turner - We're full of confidence at the moment. We've had Rotherham watched and they are hard working but I thnk, if we can get our passing game going on the difficult surface at Don Valley we'll be more than a match for anyone
Rotherham United Team News:
Rotherham United will welcome back on loan defender, Callum Kennedy, who served a one-match ban on Tuesday night. Ryan Cresswell is definitely out and Ian Thomas-Moore is a major doubt. Ryan Taylor, who is suffering from a groin injury, is only rated at fifty-fifty.
