Rotherham United vs. Plymouth Argyle

Don Valley Stadium

10 March 2012

3.00pm

Millers v Pilgrims Preview

Rotherham United entertain strugglers Plymouth Argyle on Saturday at Don Valley.

The Millers will want to start their push for a play-off spot, after getting just four points out of their last five games and dropping to twelfth in the league. At the other end of the table, the Pilgrims are in twenty-first place and looking over their shoulders at the teams below, two of which have games in hand.

Plymouth have actually won two and drawn their last three games away from Home Park while Rotherham have only won two games at Don Valley since the start of 2012, the last one being on Valentine's Day against Accrington.

Vital Quotes:

Andy Scott - We are both different sides than the ones who met earlier in the season at Home Park. Carl (Fletcher) has taken over there and they've got some momentum now. I know Carl very well and this is a chance for him to cut his teeth in management. It's took a while because of all the financial constraints and the problems behind the scenes but now he's been able to establish himself. They've got a fantastic following and there will be a lot of Plymouth fans here. They are a big club and they need to stay in this league so it's going to be tough because they are fighting for their lives and we both need the three points.

Carl Feltcher - It's going to be a tough game. Rotherham might not have won in the last five games but they've only has one defeat in those five and they will still be pushing for the play-offs. They play at an athletics track so the atmosphere is very inhibited and we are going to have to be ready for that but I'm looking forward to it. We will be going there full of confidence.

Rotherham United Team News:

After getting through seventy minutes of a reserve game on Wednesday, Gareth Evans could play some part in Saturday's game. Unless Bury agree to an extension, it could be Shaun Harrads last game for the Millers so he could start the game while Andy Scott will be hoping to have Scott Griffiths available after he missed the mid-week game due to personal reasons. The only real concern is Richard Naylor who has missed the last two games with a knee injury.

Player to watch: Lewis Grabban

After getting his first goal from open play for some time on Tuesday night, Lewis will want to carry on and get more

Plymouth Argyle Team News:

Carl Fletcher has no new injury worries or suspensions and he will be hoping for back-to-back wins. After recovering from a calf injury, Warren Feeney will be pushing for a start but it will mean either Alex MacDonald or Nick Chadwick making way

Player to watch: Darren Purse

Experience defender who has played over four hundred and fifty football league games and recently scored in the four-nil win over Accrington at the Crown Ground.

Ref Watch:

Carl Berry from Surrey
