Don Valley Stadium
8 October 2011
Rotherham United entertain Burton Albion this afternoon at Don Valley in this eighth v eleventh clash.
Burton started the season with three draws while the Millers had three wins but things have equalled out a bit over the last few weeks and there is only a point between the sides.
The Millers haven`t won at Don Valley since their three-one win over Dagenham and Redbridge in September while the Brewers haven`t won on their travels since August.
Both sides were knocked out of the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy by Sheffield United.
Andy Scott - Paul Peschisolido`s made some good signings. I spoke to him in the summer and he was a bit concerned about the lack of movement then but he`s acquired some good players and they`ve started the season well. They are a solid, well organised side and they`ve scored in every game so far and they will be a tough proposition for us.
Paul Peschisolido - Rotherham are one of those teams that we`ve always played well against but never got the rub of the green so hopefully we can put that right. We went to see them play on Tuesday night but the pitch is so far away it was difficult seeing who was who, we could have done with binoculars. The pitch is fine it`s just too far away. We are going to try and win the game.
Andy Scott is struggling at the back with injuries and is down to the bare bones. Although just back from injury himself, Johnny Mullins looks like starting and Luke Foster could get a first start since joining in the summer. It could also mean a re-call for Marcus Marshall, who was tried in defence in pre-season. Another problem Scott might have is which 'keeper to play. Conrad Logan has played every league game so far this season but Andy Warrington could be pressing for a start after his performance in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy on Tuesday night. Gareth Evans should be back but Troy Brown is still on international duty with Wales.
Stand-in skipper who is strong up front and will be looking to add to his goal tally
After both being sent off against Gillingham, Ryan Austin and Aaron Webster should be back after serving their one match bans. Tony James should start again at centre-half but Nathan Stanton is still struggling with a hamstring injury. After recovering from an ankle injury, Cleveland Taylor should be on the bench.

The Millers travel to Bristol City on FRIDAY, 14th October for this 7.45pm kick-off
