Millers v Bulls Preview

Rotherham United make the long trip to Hereford tomorrow to take on a team who haven't won at home for seven weeks.

The Bulls are fifth from bottom of League Two on seventeen points with the Millers ten points and nine places above them going into this game.

Vital Quotes:

Jamie Pitman - I don't think we can be doing as well as we have been doing without getting something from the games but we've got to make sure that we tighten up in certain areas. I've watched Rotherham and they are a decent side and they've got some very good players, especially going forward. They defended very well as ten men against Shrewsbury last week and I think it's going to be a difficult encounter but something we need to get something from. But this league has shown that anyone is capable of beating anyone and we've got to have the mentality that we are capable of doing that.

Andy Scott - They are having a tough time of it at the moment but, when you look at some of the results they've had this season, they've done very well, which is typical of a lot of sides in this league. It's a tough place to go but we've done pretty well away from home. They've become a bit more solid since Gary Peters came in as Director of Football and he knows this division inside out. They will be tough to play against but it's up to us and what we do. We've got to play like we did against Bradford and put our stamp on the game. We've got to keep going with the quality and tempo going forward but be more solid at the back and keep more clean sheets, which I keep saying week after week.

Hereford Team News:

Michael Townsend is rated as only fifty/fifty for Saturday's clash and hasn't trained for the latter part of the week while the game is expected to be too early for Joe Colbeck who has been out with a knee injury. It could be that Jamie Pitman includes striker, Sean Canham, who has just returned from a successful loan spell with Bath.

Player to watch: Delroy Facey

Experienced striker who has been around the clubs and although he's only scored one goal so far this season for the Bulls will want to score against his former side

Rotherham United Team News:

Andy Scott is still without long-term absentees Ryan Cresswell, Mark Bradley and Gareth Evans and on-loan defender, Guy Branston, is a big doubt after limping off last Saturday. Also out is Marcus Marshall who will be serving a one-match ban after getting a red card last weekend. Jon Harley should come back in after not being able to play last Saturday and Dale Tonge will probably come back to replace Marshall.

Player to watch: Lewis Grabban

Quick forward who is the Millers top scorer so far this season and will want to add to his tally

Ref Watch:

Christopher Sarginson from Staffordshire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers play their only December game at Don Valley next Saturday when AFC Wimbledon are in town - the game kicks-off at 3.00pm
