Cheltenham Town vs. Rotherham United

Whadden Road

30 December 2011

7.45pm

Millers v Robins Preview

Rotherham United travel to Cheltenham Town for their last game of 2011. The Millers, who are in eleventh place will take on the Robins who are currently flying high in second place.

The Millers go into this game having got seven points from their last three league games and keeping two clean sheets while the Robins have drawn two and won their last three league games and also beat Luton Town in the FA Cup giving them a top tie against Spurs in the next round at White Hart Lane.

Both sides will be wanting all points from this game - the Millers to close the gap and get nearer those play-off places and the Robins to climb to the top of the table.

Vital Quotes:

Mark Yates - Rotherham had a strong start to the season and then a bit of a dip but they've bounced back strongly and they have lots of good players and we aren't kidding ourselves because we know it will be a very tough game.

Andy Scott -Cheltenham will be a good challenge. We seem to respond to teams at the top and, although we haven't picked up as many points as we'd like from these games, we do seem to play better

Cheltenham Town Team News:

The Robins go into this game with no injury worries and no suspensions and Mark Yates will probably go with the same side that drew with Shrewsbury on Boxing Day. Jimmy Spencer, who has extended his loan from Huddersfield until the end of the season, will expect to keep his place up front.

Player to watch: Kaid Mohammed

Joined the Robins in the summer and has scored seven times this season. Given a chance he will have a shot

Rotherham United Team News:

Andy Scott will be without Marcus Marshall who is on crutches after a training ground injury. Johnny Mullins, who was substituted on Monday with a mysterious face injury, should be fit to start but it will be a last minute decision and Troy Brown is a slight doubt with an ankle problem. Conrad Logan will probably play his last game in goal before going back to Leicester City.

Player to watch: Michael Raynes

Started the last couple of games and has helped the team keep clean sheets
