Rotherham United vs. Morecambe

Don Valley Stadium

2 April 2011


Millers v Shrimps Preview

Rotherham United entertain Morecambe at Don Valley this afternoon and will be going all out for a win. The Millers lost their last game at Don Valley and consequently dropped out of the play-off places. Morecambe have struggled this season and are just three places above the relegation spots and the last away game they won was in February against leaders Chesterfield at the B2net.

Vital Quotes:

Andy Liddell - It will be a hard game and they've got some dangerous players but hopefully our players can overcome them

Paul Warne - We'll show a bit of respect because their away form is better than their home form, but not too much respect

Sammy McIlroy - The injuries have come at a bad time for us but we've just got to get on with it. Rotherham are a good side and they will be wanting to bounce back after their midweek loss. But, we've got to got there, roll our sleeves up and fight for our cause.

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers will give late fitness tests to Nick Fenton and Ryan Cresswell. Apart from that everyone else seems fit. If neither Fenton or Cresswell makes it then Danny Harrison will probably keep the captains armband while either Luke Ashworth or Jason Taylor will come in at centre-half.

Player to watch: Johnny Mullins

Has got better as the season's gone on and on many an occassion of late has held the defence together

Morecambe Team News:

Stewart Drummond is back from serving a one match ban. But with injuries to the likes of Jevons, Mullins, Charnock and Wilson and a late check for Laurie Williams, the team will be a bit of a mix and match as they are down to the bare bones

Player to watch: Stewart Drummond

The midfielder is in his testimonial season with the Shrimps and, coming back from a one match ban, will want to make his presence felt

Ref Watch:

SJ Rushton from Staffordshire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers' next game is on Saturday, 9th April at Cheltenham. Kick-off is 3.00pm
