AFC Wimbledon vs. Rotherham United

Millers v Wombles Preview

Rotherham United make their first trip to the Cherry Red Records Stadium on Friday to take on AFC Wimbledon. The Wombles are in fifteenth place in League Two with the Millers four places above them with nine more points.

Both Rotherham and Wimbledon won their last games - Wimbledon away and the Millers at Don Valley. The Wombles have won their last three games at home, losing their last game at Kingsmeadow (as it is better known) at the beginning of March to Plymouth. The Millers last away win was on a Friday night at Southend back in February.

Vital Quotes:

Darren Patterson - They (Wimbledon) played very well against us at our place and I think it will be a similar game on Friday. They've strengthened their squad since we played them and I'm expecting a tough game. I've got players who are pushing the eleven who started last week and who are training fantastically well and there is a lot of competition for places so we've no room for complacency.

Terry Brown - We had a report on them from last week and they (Rotherham) are a very professional side. They beat us at their place, but I thought that we were a bit unlucky that day, and we will be looking to get three points. We have played against teams without a manager before and I do not know whether it is good for us or not. It is just about the team that turns up on the day and plays their football.

AFC Wimbledon Team News:

The Wombles will be without Pim Balkestein who has a broken toe and Brett Johnson will step in for his first start since the start of the year. With two games in three days, Terry Brown could juggle some of his team around.

Player to watch: Jack Midson

Along with Izeale McLeod of Barnet, Jack is top scorer of League Two going into this game. Jack joined the Wombles in June last year

Rotherham United Team News:

Although Michael Raynes is doing better than expected, it is thought that this game will be too soon for him so club skipper, Ryan Cresswell, who had a very good game last weekend, will keep his place. Young Alec Denton, who has done so well in the reserves/youth team, will probably travel with the team to give him a taste of a first team away game. Whether he will get a place on the bench we will have to wait and see. Scott Griffiths could be a surprise inclusion after not featuring since the beginning of March.

Player to watch: Ryan Cresswell

After time out with injury Cress was Vital Rotherham Man of the Match against Hereford last weekend. Works well beside Johnny Mullins

Ref Watch:

David Phillips from West Sussex

Next Fixtures:

The Millers play at Don Valley on Easter Monday, 9th April when Cheltenham Town with a 3.00pm kick-off. The game has been named as 'Kids for a Quid' game.
