Rotherham United vs. Southend United

New York Stadium

13 October 2012

3.00pm

Millers v Shrimpers Preview

Rotherham United welcome Southend United to the New York Stadium this afternoon which is tenth place v twelfth in League Two.

Both sides go into this game on fifteen points with the Millers having won one and had two goalless draws in their last three games while Southend have drawn two and lost one although they did beat Dagenham and Redbridge in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Tuesday night.

Vital Quotes:

Steve Evans - When they've got their best eleven on the pitch Southend are a formidable team. They're big and strong and have a good manager who will want to come here and put a damper on us. But we want all three points to put us nearer those promotion places.

Paul Sturrock - Rotherham are a big side and I'm sure they will be strong at home and it will be a difficult place to go. I am pleased with our performances so far and I think we've deserved more out of some of the games than what we've got but nobody has scared me yet.

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers will be without Kari Arnason who is away on international duty with Iceland but Daniel Nardiello could make his first start since the beginning of September. Laurie Wilson could also be in contention for a return after injury as could David Noble. Alex Revell will be missing as he serves the last of his three-match suspension.

Player to watch: Craig Morgan

Southend United Team News:

Luke Prosser is a doubt and Barry Corr is struggling with a slight groin strain. Mark Phillips and Neil Harris will be missing with injury but Ryan Leonard could play some part in the game after returning to training this week and Jonson Clarke-Harris has arrived on loan from Peterborough and will be available to play. John Spicer is serving the last of a three match ban.

Player to watch: Ryan Cresswell
