9 April 2011

3.00pm

Rotherham United travel to Cheltenham tomorrow afternoon where both teams will be wanting to make amends for embarrassing defeats last weekend.

The Robins were well and truly trounced by Crewe last Saturday, eight-one while the Millers lost at Don Valley to Morecambe.

Cheltenham have won only four games in 2011 while the Millers have won six.

Vital Quotes:

Mark Yates - The hurt from last weekend is still massive and I'm still embarrassed by the performance. Hopefully, the hurt I know the players are feeling will go some way to putting in a better performance on Saturday. Of course we want to win this weekend but, after last Saturday, it's all about the performance and showing they care about that red and white shirt.

Steve Elliot - We owe everyone a performance and I can't wait for it to come and we'll be out to get three points at any cost.


Andy Liddell - Our players owe themselves a performance and we hope we can expose any weaknesses they have

Cheltenham Town Team News:

The Robins will be without Keith Lowe, Josh Low and Jeff Goulding. Kyle Haynes has been recalled from his loan spell with Hednesford to provide cover. Youth team captain, James Fawke is set to be on the bench.

Player to watch: Wesley Thomas

Wes joined the Robins in the summer and can play either up front or out wide. He is Town's leading goalscorer so far this season

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers will be without 'keeper Andy Warrington and Jamie Annerson will step in, with youth 'keeper, Jack Leyden, on the bench. Ryan Cresswell and Ian Thomas-Moore are major doubts and Tom Pope has been recalled from his loan spell with Port Vale for cover.

Player to watch: Jamie Annerson

Jamie has two loan spells with the Millers before signing a permanent deal in July 2009. Jamie has made three league appearances and has played in a handful of cup games this season. He will want to prove how good he is to keep the number one spot
