18 February 2012
Rotherham United travel to the Pirelli Stadium tomorrow afternoon to take on a Burton Albion side who will be hoping to win their first game of 2012.
Rotherham, who have picked up nine points in their last six games, will be hoping to make this the third win in a row and push further towards the play-off places. If the Brewers win this one, which will be their first win over the Millers at the Pirelli, they will leapfrog over the Millers in the table.
Paul Peschisolido - Rotherham are a very good team. They spent a lot of money in the summer with recruitment and wages and, I would have thought, at the beginning of the season that they would have been one of the favourites for a promotion spot. They are picking up points now and are probably looking at the play-offs as being their ultimate goal. Hopefully, we can stop that and re-ignite a charge into the play-offs ourselves. We will be paying special attention to Shaun Harrad who was a cult hero here. He is a player who will work his socks off and he'll be desperate to prove what a good player he was and still is and, if we are going to beat Rotherham, he is someone we are going to have to stop.
Andy Scott - It's a tough away game and we know that Burton can score goals. They beat us one-nil at Don Valley which is probably one of the games that we look back and think how did we lose it, but we didn't do enough to win the game and couldn't break them down. We are going to have to approach this game in the same way we have the last two and it's a chance to move further away from them.
This game will come to soon for Chris Regan who has been out with a long term injury but Billy Kee, who hasn't played since the start of the year, could well play some part in the game. Defender Chris Riggott has agreed a short term deal with the Brewers and could also get a call but on-loan Swansea midfielder Lee Lucas (hamstring) and Aaron Webster (hamstring) are out.

Millers Manager, Andy Scott, is hoping to name the same side for the third game running which will be the first time this season he will have been able to do that
