Rotherham United vs. Dagenham and Redbridge

Don Valley Stadium

10 September 2011

3.00pm

Millers v Daggers Preview

Rotherham United take on Dagenham and Redbridge at Don Valley this afternoon in what is second place v eighth place in League Two.

Both teams have played six league games with the Millers winning four and just losing one, last week at Swindon and the Daggers having won three games.

The Millers haven't played since last Saturday whereas the Daggers had a tough game in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Wednesday night which ended in a massive penalty shoot out with Leyton Orient, with John Stills side winning fourteen-thirteen!

Vital Quotes:

Andy Scott - Dagenham are a good side and are organised and John`s (Still) sides are always hard working. They`ve got plenty of energy about them and a certain amount of talent as well. They are game and they will have a go and can never be underestimated. It`s an important game for us because we want to keep our home record going and we need to play the way we can play and defend better than we did last week.

Rotherham United Team News:

Andy Scott is hoping that 'keeper, Conrad Logan, is fit after having to have dentistry on teeth that were dislodged in last Saturday's game as well as playing on with a broken nose. Troy Brown is back from playing for Wales U21's and he could start, though it is more probable that he will be on the bench. Danny Schofield will be out, after getting sent off at Swindon last Saturday and Chris Holroyd, who scored for the reserves in mid-week, could be in for a start, although Ben Pringle and Brett Williams will by vying for the spot.

Player to watch: ALEX REVELL

Scored two goals on his debut away last weekend and will want to do the same, if not better, at Don Valley

Dagenham and Redbridge Team News:

John Still wasn't expecting to get anyone in on loan before the game today and he played a few on Wednesday night, who, he admits, he probably wouldn't have risked in a league game. Luke Howell is struggling and also in the treatment room are Medy Elito, Josh Scott, Kevin Maher and Rob Edmans. Peter Gain, Billy Bingham and Damien Scannell all played in the win on Wednesday with Richard Rose playing for the last forty-five minutes and could be pushing for places. Jon Nurse returns from international duty and could start.

Player to watch: MARK ARBOUR

South African born defender who has been awarded NPower Player of the month for August. Not afraid to have a shot at goal.

Ref Watch:

M Haywood from West Yorkshire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers travel to Accrington for their next league game on Tuesday. Kick-off is 7.45pm
