Don Valley Stadium
17 December 2011
Rotherham United and AFC Wimbledon meet tomorrow for the first time in any competition. The Wombles come to Don Valley on the back of three losses, though they did pull off a shock and beat League One side Scunthorpe in the FA Cup at Glanford Park recently.
The Millers go into this game, their only game this month that isn't an away game, four points and six places above Wimbledon and just two points off the play-off places.
Andy Scott - It's a busy time and the fixtures haven't been kind to us but, having said that we've been pretty good away from home. Wimbledon are on a poor run at the moment and they'll be wanting to stop the rot. We've got to start as we did last week but continue it and be really, really solid and make sure they can't play the way they want to play. I've seen them a couple of times and, in fairness, they played very well so they are a decent side who have lost their way a little bit. They've got some decent players and some of those lads have won promotion so they know what it takes to win games. They've got some good midfield players who attack at will and players who can move the ball round well so we will have to be careful. We've identified areas where we can get at them and found their weaknesses where we can put them under pressure.
Terry Brown - We are travelling up to Yorkshire early and hoping to miss most of the bad weather and giving ourselves every opportunity to turn in a solid performance at Rotherham. Rotherham's manager, Andy Scott, has a great track record and in particular was very successful at Brentford where he took them to promotion from League 2 at his first attempt. He builds winning teams and has a very strong squad. They will be a handful and Saturday is a real challenge but, on our day, we know we will be a real handful for them. It is important that we bring something back from Rotherham and set ourselves up for what will be a very testing and exciting Christmas period.
Rotherham will have Marcus Marshall back after serving a one match suspension and it is thought Jon Harley will be fit, after going off at Hereford last week with a face injury.
As he proved last week he can perform in either penalty area!
Terry Brown will be without Sammy Moore due to suspension although Mat Mitchel-King is fit and available for selection
Versatile sportsman having been a tennis and football coach before turning professional at football. Wimbledon's top scorer so far this season with eleven goals
Patrick Miller from Bedfordshire
The Millers travel to Macclesfield on Boxing Day where it will be a 3.00pm kick-off
