Millers v Pilgrims Preview

Plymouth Argyle

Rotherham United

Home Park

13 August 2011

3.00pm

Rotherham United make the long journey to Plymouth this weekend for their first away trip of the season.
The Millers won their first game of the season against the much fancied Oxford at Don Valley while Argyle managed a one-all draw at Shrewsbury. Both sides were knocked out of the Carling Cup on Tuesday night.
The Pilgrims are on the brink of liquidation and their are worries about unsorted financial problems with fans having organised a 'Save Our Club' meeting for Saturday. Administrators The P&A Partnership failed yesterday in a High Court bid to force 230,000 out of preferred bidder Bishop International and it's only thanks to the players and other club staff agreeing to defer their wages yet again that the game is going ahead.
Both clubs have brought in a host of new players during the pre-season.

Vital Quotes:

Andy Scott - We will go to Plymouth and play our way and try to win. The players have been made aware of any problems that Plymouth may cause. Peter Reid is a very good manager and excellent coach and whatever side he puts out will be well drilled and organised

Peter Reid - Rotherham are one of those sides who have been there or thereabouts over recent seasons so it'll be another difficult game.We're just looking forward to the game and hopefully we can get a result for the supporters who've been magnificent so far this season.

Plymouth Argyle Team News:

Peter Reid is hoping to have captain Carl Fletcher, striker Warren Feeney and right-back Durrell Berry back after they missed the Carling Cup defeat to Millwall.

Player to watch: Robbie Williams

Midfielder who joined Argyle in the summer from Rochdale. Has a wicked free-kick on him

Rotherham United Team News:

Andy Scott has to decide whether to play Troy Brown or Michael Raynes on Saturday with Brown coming back from International duty. Conrad Logan will come back in goal, after not being able to play against his parent club, Leicester City, on Tuesday night and Andy Warrington will drop down to the bench. Marcus Marshall and Lewis Grabban were taken off on Tuesday night suffering from knocks, as a precaution.

Player to watch: Marcus Marshall

Hopefully he will be fit to be included on Saturday - had a superb 45 minutes on Tuesday night

Ref Watch:

Darren Sheldrake from Surrey

The Millers travel to Crewe on Tuesday, 16th August with a 7.45pm kick-off

It seems that we might have former Millers loanee, Will Atkinson, playing against us tomorrow - he's joined Argyle on loan today
