Rotherham United vs. Cheltenham Town

New York Stadium

17 November 2012

3.00pm

MIllers v Robins Preview

Rotherham United will be hoping to put last Saturday's awful defeat to Dagenham well and truly behind them as they take on Cheltenham Town at the New York Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Millers have won their last three home games but have only picked up one point in two away from home which sees them start this game two places outside the play-off places. The Robins come to the NYS sitting in third place just behind Port Vale on goal difference. The Millers seem to be just getting into their stride when something happens and they have a really poor game while Town come into this game with just three league losses all season.

Vital Quotes:

Steve Evans - We've got it in our locker to win by four or five, but we also have it in our locker to lose by that same amount.

Neil Howarth (Assistant Manager) - We've got a tough month. We've got four points from two games which we're pleased with but Rotherham away is as hard as they come. It's always a difficult game and they've got a new stadium, they want to get promoted and they're a big club in our league. They've got great backing, great support and it's going to be a tough game.

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers will definitely be without influential midfielder Kari Arnason as well as Dale Tonge, Scott Shearer and Lionel Ainsworth. Classed as doubtful is Craig Morgan and David Noble. Courtney Cameron, joined on loan from Aston Villa, will probably make his debut

Player to watch: Andy Warrington

On the back of the loss away at Dagenham Andy was the only player to come out with any credit, even though five goals went past him but, believe me, without him it could have been a cricket score

Cheltenham Town Team News:

Cheltenham will be without Lawson D'ath who has gone back for to his parent club Reading for treatment and Harry Hooman is also out with a groin strain. It could be that Mark Yates starts with the same eleven who began at Burton last week

Player to watch: Scott Brown

Goalkeeper with a growing reputation who has kept four clean sheets in his last four games and will be wanting to make it a fifth at the New York Stadium.
