Rotherham United travel to Bristol this evening to take on Rovers at their Memorial Stadium.
After being relegated at the end of last season, Rovers, who start this game in seventeenth place will be disappointed with their season so far and we Millers already know that Millers Manager, Andy Scott, is not impressed with Rotherham's fall out of the top ten.
Both teams have their share of injury problems and Paul Buckle has entlisted the help for a top London sports performance clinic in a bid to ease the injuries at the Memorial Stadium. Meanwhile Andy Scott has been trying all week to bring loan players in but talks seem to break down at the last minute.
Both the Millers and Rovers have lost three of their last five games.
Paul Buckle - It is about trying to get a settled team. We want to pass the ball, but we want to penetrate as well, we have got to have a blend and mix our game up. We believe in what we are doing, we are a good side, and it is up to us to go and step forward. We are looking forward to the game, we are at home and we have to make that count. I am sure Rotherham will want to get back on track, but so do we, so hopefully that will make for a good open game. My players are working their socks off and you can't fault them for effort but what we need to do now is cut the silly errors out
Andy Scott - It's a game with two sides who haven't had the best of form recently but it's a difficult place to go to with the crowd they get. They've spent a lot of money this summer bringing in players and they will be expecting to be up there. But they've struggled of late but we know that they've got players capable of beating anyone in this league. We've got to make sure we play like we did in the second half of the game last week and defend as a side and attack as a side and be more ruthless
Paul Buckle has practically a full squad going into this evening's game with Matt Gill pushing for a start after having recovered from a hamstring injury. Wayne Brown is definitely out with a damaged ankle while Danny Woodwards is rated doubtful with a rib injury. Scott McGleish should keep his starting place up front after getting the all clear from a knee injury.
Striker on loan from Wycombe and, after being Wanderers top scorer last season, will want to get among the goals for Rovers
With all the injuries the Millers have, Andy Scott hasn't many players left to chose from. Marcus Marshall is a doubt after coming off at half-time during the reserve loss on Monday. Troy Brown is back from international duty with Wales and could go straight back into the starting eleven. Andy Warrington will keep his place between the sticks
Acting skipper and will want to add to his two league goals he already has for the Millers
Andy Woolmer from Northampton
The Millers entertain Shrewsbury Town next Saturday, 22 October at Don Valley. Kick-off is 3.00pm
