Rotherham United vs. Crewe Alexandra

Don Valley Stadium

6 March 2012

7.45pm

Millers v Railwaymen Preview

Rotherham United entertain Crewe Alexandra this evening at Don Valley who are just one place and two points above the Millers in League Two.

The Millers will be hoping to get their first win since Valentines Day which would take them above Crewe who haven't won away from Gresty Road since mid-January.

Vital Quotes:

Steve Davis - Rotherham are dangerous, they're decent opponents with good players and a decent budget, and they'll be looking for a good end to the season. There's not much atmosphere at the Don Valley, you have to make your own atmosphere on the pitch because it's a little bit detatched for supporters. But we've got to go there and be nice and positive.

Rotherham United Team News:

Rotherham United will welcome back Lewis Grabban to tonight's squad after the striker became a father on Saturday. Richard Naylor missed out at the weekend due to a knee problem and will probably not make it for this evening. Danny Harrison will be monitored after only managing to play forty-five minutes at Barnet following a car accident on Friday. Midfielder Danny Schofield will be pushing for a start after coming off the bench on Saturday.

Player to watch: Lewis Grabban

Will want to mark the birth of his daughter with a goal or two

Crewe Alexandra Team News:

'Keeper Steve Phillips has a bruised foot and faces a late fitness test. Lee Bell and AJ Leitch-Smith are set to return after injury but James Tunnicliffe, who is on loan from Wycombe, still has a shoulder problem.

Player to watch: Shaun Miller

Prolific goalscorer who has been at Crewe since a seven year old child. Has scored six goals this season and is due some more

Ref Watch:
