Rotherham United vs. Torquay United

New York Stadium

15 September 2012

3.00pm

Millers v Gulls Preview

Rotherham United entertain Torquay this afternoon at the New York Stadium.

Both the Millers and the Gulls are on seven points and the Millers will be wanting to put last Saturday's big loss to Port Vale behind them. Torquay come into this game on the back of a goalless draw against local rivals Plymouth and come to the New York Stadium not having lost a league game yet this season.

Vital Quotes:

Steve Evans - Torquay are a good team and it will be a really tough test for us. They are big, strong, physical and will play one up top who will support the front players and are excellent in midfield. Martin (Ling) is an experienced manager and they've recruited very well. If we can get three points on Saturday it will settle everyone down and then we can look forward to Rochdale on Tuesday.

Danny Stevens Winger - We know it will be tough against Rotherham but we play better against better teams and we will be concentrating on getting three points to end the run of draws.

Rotherham United Team News:

Steve Evans may be considering one or two tweaks to the side that lost so abysmally last weekend at Port Vale, though it is doubtful that wholesale changes will be made. Kari Arnason is only fifty-fifty to start the game after getting a knock last weekend playing for Iceland. If Arnason isn't fit then either Nicky Hunt or Dale Tonge, who both came through a practice game on Tuesday, could start.

Player to watch: Kayode Odejayi

Will want to add to his two league goals so far this season

Torquay United Team News:

Saul Halpin and Damon Lathrope will be missing for the Gulls but Lloyd Macklin and Craig Easton will be making the long trip to South Yorkshire. Danny Stevens played for the first time this season last week and came through training so will probably start

Player to watch: Rene Howe

Experienced striker who had an impressive season last season for the Gulls

Ref Watch:

Jeremy Simpson from Lancashire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers are at home to Rochdale on Tuesday, 18th September when it will be a 7.45pm kick-off
