Rotherham United vs. Hereford United

Don Valley Stadium

31 March 2012

3.00pm

Millers v Bulls Preview

Rotherham United welcome Hereford to Don Valley tomorrow with both clubs needing a victory for different reasons.

The Millers will be looking for a win to aid them in the little hope they still harbour of getting into a play-off spot and to show any potential manager what they can do while the Bulls need the points to push them off the foot of the table.

Hereford go into the game on the back of three losses, two of which were at home while the managerless Millers won their last game at Don Valley though lost last week at Crawley.

Vital Quotes:

Darren Patterson - We are going to play with the same energy levels, the same intensity, the same way we've approached the last two games. Hereford are obviously at the wrong end of the table but you have to respect them. We had a very tough game down there earlier this season and I've no doubt they will be coming here fighting for their lives and we have to make sure we more than match that and show what we can do.

Richard O`Kelly - I`m expecting they (Rotherham) will be very well organised and, because of the change in manager, very motivated. It will be a strange atmosphere there, the supporters will be a fair distance away from the pitch. The surroundings are rather strange with a running track around the outside and it's probably like a trip to Warsaw or somewhere like that.

Rotherham United Team News:

Darren Patterson will be without defender, Michael Raynes, who is suffering with a hamstring injury, and it should mean a long awaited start for skipper Ryan Cresswell. After making two appearances from the bench, Sam Hoskins, on loan from Southampton, is pushing for a start.

Player to watch: Johnny Mullins

Will always give one hundred per cent

Hereford United Team News:

Richard O'Kelly should have Sam Clucas fit after an ankle injury is thought not to be as bad as first thought. Midfielder James McQuilkin will have a late fitness test but Simon Clist, Benoit Dalibard, Joe Heath and Rob Purdie are all out injured. Loan signings James Chambers and James Baxendale could also play their first games for the club.

Player to watch: Tom Barkhuizen

Pacey young striker on loan from Blackpool

Ref Watch:

Eddie Ilderton from Tyne and Wear

Next Fixtures:

The Millers travel to play AFC Wimbledon on Good Friday, 6 April 2012. Kick-Off is 3.00pm

Well, I've heard Don Valley called some things (even called it myself!) but 'like going to Warsaw' is a new one on me!
