Dagenham and Redbridge vs. Rotherham United

L B Barking and Dagenham Stadium

27 January 2012

3.00pm

Millers v Daggers Preview

Rotherham United travel to the L B Barking and Dagenham Stadium tomorrow to take on a Dagenham and Redbridge side who are currently languishing in the bottom two of League Two.

The Daggers last win at Victoria Road, which was also the last League game they won, was at the end of last month against high flying Gillingham. This being their first home game in for three games they will be hoping to give their fans something to cheer about.

Lying just one place below middle of the table, this will be the Millers first away trip of 2012. Never losing to Dagenham and Redbridge, Andy Scott will be hoping his team pick up three points tomorrow to help boost them up the table.

Vital Quotes:

John Still - Rotherham are a good, strong side and will probably be a bit disappointed with their results over the course of the season. They would probably have expected to be in the shake-up so they will be determined to get back to a higher position. It's going to be a tough game but is it going to be any tougher than Gillingham or Southend? It's important that we get some wins and Saturday would be a good time to start

Andy Scott - Dagenham is always a tough game and, although they lost to Torquay the other night, they played very well. I saw them at Millwall (in the Cup) a couple of weeks ago and, in fairness, until Millwall scored, they were the better side. John (Still) is a good manager and he will be hurting at the moment. They`ve had to lose a lot of players but they`ve got some talented youngsters who, on their day, are capable of getting a good result. We`ve got to go there and play with a tempo and confidence that we were lacking on Saturday. First and foremost we need to come away from Dagenham with three points and get ourselves back in the mix. We are honest enough to appreciate that the criticism after Saturday was fair and it wasn`t acceptable and everyone has got to take responsibility to improve.

Dagenham and Redbridge Team News:

John Still is hoping to have Josh Scott back for Saturday`s game although it is thought it will be to soon for joint-leading scorer Brian Woodall who has a groin strain. Sam Williams, Luke Howell, Peter Gain, Kevin Maher and Dominic Green are all injured.

Player to watch: Jon Nurse

Tops the goal scoring chart for the Daggers and doesn`t mind having a shot at goal

Rotherham United Team News:

Rotherham United will probably give a debut to loan signing Kieron Cadogan who will replace Marcus Marshall who has gone on loan to Macclesfield. Although he got through ninety minutes of a reserve game this week, it is thought Scott won`t risk skipper Ryan Cresswell. Former Daggers defender, Scott Griffiths should start and it could be that Richard Naylor, who arrived this month until the end of the season, might play some part in the game.

Player to watch: Scott Griffiths

Did well last weekend on his debut and will want to show his former club that he can 'still do it`

Ref Watch:

BRENDAN MALONE from Wiltshire

The Millers entertain Torquay at Don Valley next Saturday, 4th February and it is a 3.0pm kick off
