Managerless Rotherham United go to the Broadfield Stadium this weekend on the back of Tuesday's four-two win to take on fifth placed Crawley Town.
Tenth places Rotherham will want to finish the busy month of March's away matches with at least a point from this game while Crawley will want to get their third win in a row.
The Millers will want to put on a good show with the club starting interviewing potential new managers at the beginning of next week while Crawley could get into an automatic promotion spot with a win if other results go their way
Steve Evans - The boys are flying again after a couple of great wins. We cannot afford to let our standards slip but at the same time I know our competition in every match we play is fierce. Our next challenge is a Rotherham side who are very decent with a number of very good footballers. They won on Tuesday night, it has to be said relatively comfortably, and will be a real threat. Rotherham will be motivated to beat us and it will be as hard a game here at the Broadfield as we've had all season. Rotherham are a big club in this league and they have a superb chairman in Tony Stewart. They will bring a lot of support with them who will be loud and proud. We have to be ready to meet their challenge head on, they will be very dangerous opponents given the quality of players they have.
Darren Patterson - It`s going to be a tough test. They (Crawley) are at the top end of the league and they have had a successful season. We will be going there in good spirits and high on confidence. We know all about them and we are going to focus on us because we know on our day we are capable of beating anybody and I will pick a team and system that I think will win a football match.
Steve Evans will be checking on Claude Davis (virus) and Lloyd James (ribs) ahead of the game tomorrow. A surprise inclusion to the squad could be goalkeeper Scott Shearer after recovering a lot quicker from a knee injury than was expected.
On loan from Charlton Athletic and will want to start getting the goals to help the Red Devils
Caretaker Manager, Darren Patterson, will give late fitness tests to Lewis Grabban and Alex Revell. If both aren't available then we could see Gareth Evans pushed up front with Ben Pringle and there could be a start for Sam Hoskins who is on loan from Southampton. Skipper Ryan Cresswell came through ninety minutes of a reserve game during the week and should feature.
Found his scoring boots and will want to test them again on Saturday
Gavin Ward from Surrey
The Millers take on Hereford Town at Don Valley on 31st March with a 3.00pm kick-off
