Millers v Brewers Preview
26 February 2011
Rotherham United take the relatively short distance to the Pirelli Stadium tomorrow to take on a Burton Albion side whose last win was against league leaders, Chesterfield earlier this month.
The Millers will really want to improve on their away form, not having won away from Don Valley since the beginning of January at Macclesfield.
Twenty-one points separate these two teams with the Brewers languishing just above the drop zone although they have only managed to play twenty-six games so far, while the Millers find themselves in fourth place after having their game against Shrewsbury at Don Valley postponed last weekend.
Paul Peschisolido - I've got an idea in my head of what will work on Saturday. The team who wants it more, on any given day in this division, will win the game but we can beat anyone on our day. Adam Le Fondre is a fox in the box and we know we've got to keep him quiet but they've also got other players who are equally dangerous and it's going to be a hard afternoon.
Ronnie Moore - If we go there and think we are going to cruise three points then we will be in trouble. Burton's home form is good and they can't be taken lightly
Burton Albion Team News:
Calvin Zola, on loan from Crewe, is out for six weeks with a hamstring injury and Greg Pearson is set to take his place. Scott Malone is doubtful while it's not known if Nathan Stanton will be back. But midfielder, Russell Penn is back from suspension and Aaron Webster could be pushing for a recall.
Player to watch: DARREN MOORE
Tall defender who joined Albion in August last year from Barnsley.
Rotherham United Team News:
The Millers striker, Ryan Taylor, is rated only fifty/fifty and it's likely he will have a late fitness test tomorrow. Ian Thomas-Moore and Ryan Cresswell are definitely out. Callum Kennedy, on loan from Swindon, is back after serving a one-match ban and Liam Henderson, on loan from Watford, is in line to play up front with Adam Le Fondre. Ronnie Moore has also re-captured Danny Coid from Blackpool who is sure to play some part in the game.
Player to watch: OMAR DALEY
On loan from Bradford until the end of the season and has fitted into the Rotherham team well
G Horwood from Bedfordshire
The Millers make the long journey down to Torquay on Tuesday for a 7.45pm kick off
