Don Valley Stadium
14 January 2012
Rotherham United entertain Swindon Town this afternoon at Don Valley Stadium in what is an eleventh place v fourth place game.
The Millers go into this game having had a blank weekend last weekend and will be hoping to capitalise on the win over Bradford at the start of the year.
The Robins are in top form having won two of their last three league games and also won an FA Cup tie against Premiership Wigan.
Town Manager, Paolo Di Canio, will be serving a one match ban on Saturday and will be sitting in the stands meaning Assistant Manager, Fabrizio Piccareta will be the man in charge on the bench at Don Valley
Andy Scott - Swindon are a good side. They've spent a lot of money, have a big squad and a lot of options. They've got a settled side and are playing with a lot of confidence. I think both us and them and changed in the way we played since we met earlier in the season and I would think that, with Crawley, they are the favourites to go out of this league automatically. Paolo has got them playing with energy and they are powerful and strong and they have been on a good run recently and we will have to be at our best to beat them. Swindon are a massive club and they had more fans than Barnet at Barnet on Tuesday night. We've got to make sure that we are on their coat tails and we can hang on to them and try and nick the points off them.
Paolo Di Canio - I obviously cannot give instructions from the touchline but I can have a word with my technical staff when I want to change something. I obviously cannot give instructions from the touchline but I can have a word with my technical staff when I want to change something. Every game is tough but this one is probably tougher than most. They are six points from us and came back well from a bad moment. They have good quality and they are a very compact team.
There will be room in the squad for the latest loan signings Scott Griffiths and Richard Naylor with Sam Wood taking up where he left off after agreeing to return until the end of the season. The game may have come to soon for skipper Ryan Cresswell, although he has returned to full training. Jamie Annerson and Luke Foster are definitely out.
Will want to add to his goal tally
Di Canio will be without Alan McCormack who is suspended and Joe Devera is likely to replace him. Former Millers loanee, Callum Kennedy could get a start and Alan Connell and Paul Benson could also be in the starting eleven. Oliver Risser is also available after serving a three match suspension as is Billy Bodin who has returned from a loan spell with Torquay.
A bustling attacking midfielder who likes to shoot at goal
