Rotherham United vs. Accrington Stanley

Don Valley Stadium

14 February 2012

7.45pm

Millers v Stanley Preview

Rotherham United welcome Accrington Stanley to Don Valley this evening which is twelfth place v eighth place.

This will be Stanley`s first game in February, having two postponed due to the bad weather, their last game being a thrilling four-three win at home against Gillingham. Meanwhile the Millers will be full of confidence after the display and win on Friday night against Southend.

The last game that Accrington won away from home was against Burton Albion last month, while the Millers haven`t won at Don Valley since the beginning of 2012 which was against Bradford City.

Tonight will be Leam Richardson`s last time in charge before moving down a peg to be assistant to new manager Paul Cook.

Vital Quotes:

Andy Scott - Accrington will be trying to impress the new manager who will no doubt be watching tonight. They are always a difficult side to play against and play a lot differently to what they did a few years ago and they`ve had some good results of late. We aren`t looking at the table now, the key for us is to keep picking up wins and take points off the teams around us.

Leam Richardson - We're in a good vein of form and we've had some good games so we did fancy putting some points on the board but even though we've only had the one match I've still got a one hundred per cent record! It's a shame the games haven't come thick and fast like we expected but the weather has stopped that but the lads are buzzing and it`s refreshing to see that we're ready and raring to go tonight. The main focus is playing the game and getting the result. We've done our work and if we do our jobs on the night then we'll get three points.

Rotherham United Team News:

Rotherham haven`t got any main injury worries except for Gareth Evans and it could be that Andy Scott goes with the same team who started on Friday night at Roots Hall which means a home debut for latest loanee Shaun Harrad

Player to watch: Shaun Harrad

Scored on his debut on Friday and will want to do the same at Don Valley

Accrington Stanley Team News:

Leam Richardson will have Tom Bedner fit after hamstring problems and he could well feature this evening. Alan Burton and Sean Hessey are still sidelined although defender Liam Willis could make his debut after joining Stanley last month

Player to watch: Danny Coid

Millers` fans were sorry to see the defender leave after his loan spell last season. He will know all about the Don Valley pitch and will want to help get Stanley their first win there.
