Millers v Stanley Preview

Accrington Stanley
vs.
Rotherham United

The Crown Ground

2 October 2012

7.45pm

Rotherham United travel to the Crown Ground looking for their first away win of the campaign against an Accrington side who have lost only one home League Two game so far this season.

Both teams go into the game this evening on the back of wins - the Millers at home against Oxford while Stanley beat AFC Wimbledon at the Kingsmeadow Stadium.

Vital Quotes:

Paul Cook - speaking to Accrington Stanley`s official site - We know we are in for a real test tomorrow night. We`re up against a very strong team who have a very experienced manager who knows the divisions inside out and it is a club going in the right direction.  We`re well aware that we`ll have our hands full but we like to think that it will be a good game.


Steve Evans - Accrington are absolutely flying.  They are very resolute and have a real work ethic. They won in the last minute in their last home game and they won down at Wimbledon so we know it`s going to be tough.  Cooky`s a good manager and he`s got a real hard working side but we`ll go there and do our best. 

Accrington Stanley Team News:

Paul Cook will be without Danny Schofield who is on loan from the Millers and can't play against his parent club as part of the deal. They will also be without Michael Liddle who is still suspended but could welcome back James Gray who has recovered from illness. Charlie Bennett is also out with an ankle injury.

Player to watch: Padraig Amond

After being with Accrington on loan for a season he signed a permanent deal in August this year. He is top scorer so far this season for Stanley.

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers will be without Alex Revell who is serving a suspension. Kari Arnason should keep his place in midfield after starting his first game on Saturday since playing for Iceland at the beginning of September. Steve Evans, who will be serving the fifth of his sixth stadium ban, is waiting on a couple of knocks and has hinted that there will be a couple of changes from the win over Oxford. Although Laurie Wilson is back in training tonight's game will probably come to early for him.

Player to watch: Michael O'Connor

Midfielder who has scored four goals this season and as he says he wants to get to double figures he will want to be on the score sheet again tonight

Ref Watch:

CHRISTOPHER SARGINSON from Staffordshire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers make the short trip to Bootham Crescent to take on York City on Saturday, 6th October where it will be a 3.00pm kick-off
