Rotherham United
vs.
Southend United

Don Valley Stadium

24 September 2011

3.00pm

Rotherham United welcome Southend to Don Valley on Saturday with just two points between the teams in the league.

The Millers have only lost once at Don Valley this season while the Shrimpers have won two and lost two on their travels.

Vital Quotes:

Andy Scott - Paul (Sturrock) is a good manager who knows the division and knows how to get the best out of his players. They will be organised and difficult to break down and it's going to be a tough game. We are going to have to make sure that we are defensively secure to cope with all their threats.




Paul Sturrock - Rotherham are good opposition so it will be a tough test for us. They've scored a lot of goals but we always seem to raise our game against the teams at the top end of the league. But, it will be a difficult game because I do see Rotherham being there or there all season.

Rotherham United Team News:

Although Andy Scott has hinted that he might tinker with the side, particularly the defence, it's possible that the team will be the same one that drew with Torquay last Saturday. Mark Bradley could be in contention after recovering from a slight hamstring injury. Johnny Mullins played his first football in the reserves at the start of the week since April but won't be considered for today`s game.

Player to watch: Lewis Grabban

After twice scoring two goals in a game he will be wanting to get a third for a hat-trick

Southend United Team News:

Southend will be without Anthony Grant and Ryan Hall after both picking up their fifth bookings last weekend. Barry Corr and Lee Sawyer are still out with injuries but Bilel Mohsni is available after serving a suspension. Neil Harris has trained all week and Paul Sturrock will be hoping he can start.

Player to watch: Neil Harris

Just coming back from injury Neil is a proven goalscorer having scored over one hundred goals while he was with Millwall

Ref Watch:

Graham Salisbury from Lancashire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers travel to Port Vale next Saturday for a 3.00pm kick-off at Vale Park
