Millers v Robins Preview

Rotherham United travel to Swindon Town for the televised game tomorrow with the only unbeaten record still in league two.
The Millers start the early kick-off game in top place having only dropped points against Barnet at Don Valley.
The Robins started their life in League Two, well enough, with a win over Crewe Alexandra but since then haven't got a point. They did, however, beat Bristol City in the first round of the Carling Cup but lost to Southampton in the second leg this week.

Vital Quotes:

Andy Scott - They've got some good players and when they click I think they will be a force to be reckoned with. If we get three points we will start to push away from the bulk of the pack, which is what we are looking for.

Paolo Di Canio - This is an opportunity to show everyone in English football that we play a League One game. We need to score goals. They (Rotherham) are very confident and they are physically strong. But, I am confident that we are going to have a very good game and we are going to play our football.

Swindon Town Team News:

Swindon will be without Leon Clarke, due to the bust-up they had after the game on Tuesday. Ahmed Abdulla, who joined this week from West Ham, will be available while Lukas Magera could get his first start up front partnering Medhi Kerrouche. Alberto Comazzi played the full ninety minutes against Southampton mid-week and will be expecting to keep his place. Oliver Risser faces a late fitness test on a thigh strain while defender Nathan Thompson is unavailable due to a knee injury

Player to watch: Callum Kennedy

Former Millers loanee, Callum, will want to show the Millers what they are missing out on. After having spells out on loan last season, the twenty-two year old has become the first choice left-back so far this season.

Rotherham United Team News:

Andy Scott has brought in two new strikers this week and both will be hoping to start tomorrow - though probably Alex Revell more than Brett Williams because he has recently been on loan with the Robins. Of course, Scott could play both, one or neither as he isn't afraid to change his side to which team they are playing. There are no new injuries for the Millers but Troy Brown is away on international duty with Wales

Player to watch: Marcus Marshall

Seems to have made the right-back spot his own and had a great game last Saturday.

Ref Watch:

Carl Boyeson from East Yorkshire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers are at Don Valley for their next league game on Saturday, 10th September when Dagenham and Redbridge will be the visitors
