AFC Wimbledon vs. Rotherham United

Cherry Red Records Stadium

15 December 2012

3.00pm

Millers v Wombles Preview

Rotherham United make the journey down South to take the Cherry Red Records Stadium tomorrow to take on AFC Wimbledon.

Steve Evans' side go into this game after losing their last League game while Wimbledon drew their game away at Barnet.

Wimbledon's last win was in the first round of the FA Cup when they beat York in a replay after extra time. Their last league win was also against York at Bootham Crescent while their last league win at home was in October against Bristol Rovers.

The Millers won their last two away games against Exeter City and Accrington Stanley.

Wimbledon have a relatively new manager in Neal Ardley whose took over in October.

Vital Quotes:

Neal Ardley - Rotherham seem to be in a rich vein of form, maybe not so much in terms of results, but in how well they are playing. They are a very good team with a big budget for this league and they are expected to be up there. When your home form has not been the best, then you know it is going to be tough.

Steve Evans - Wimbledon have got some excellent offensive players but I think the outcome of the game will be down to how well we play.

AFC Wimbledon Team News:

It is thought that this game will come too soon for Jason Prior who has been out for almost eight months and although Rashid Yussuff is on the mend from a hip injury it is doubtful that he will be ready for this game. Byron Harris is also a doubt with a back problem while loanee forward Paul McCallum, from West Ham, completes a three-match ban. Neal Ardley has recalled Christian Jolley from Newport County but it is unclear whether he will be in the squad tomorrow.

Player to watch: Stacy Long

Midfielder who has found his scoring boots in the last few weeks

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers will have Mark Bradley back after missing last week with a thigh strain. Skipper Ian Sharps, who went off with a broken nose, should be fit to play.

Player to watch: Kari Arnason

Back last week after injury will want to step it up this week and will want to get on the score sheet.

Ref Watch:

DAVID PHILLIPS from West Sussex

Next Fixtures:

The Millers will travel to Nottingham (again) on Tuesday to take on Notts County in the FA Cup second round replay. Kick-off is 7.45pm
