Millers v Pilgrims Preview

Plymouth Argyle
vs.
Rotherham United

Home Park

20 April 2013

3.00pm

Rotherham United and Plymouth Argyle go head-to-head at Home Park tomorrow with both teams wanting wins for different reasons. The Millers moved into third place after their third consecutive win on Tuesday while Argyle's win at Plymouth mean they probably need just one point from the game to be safe from relegation.

The Millers last away win was at the beginning of March at Oxford while the Pilgrims haven't lost at home since the visit of Oxford to Home Park.

Vital Quotes:

John Sheridan - We are still in a position where we can still be caught so we have to make sure that we try and get something against Rotherham but we know it's going to be a tough game. They`ve got a big squad and got a lot of good players for this division in the team and no doubt they will come and try and win the game.

Steve Evans - We are capable of going to Plymouth but it will be difficult. I think there will be more football than there was at Bradford. Their support has been sensational for years and this has the makings of a great game.

Plymouth Argyle Team News:

Plymouth will be without loanee Lee Cox who has an injured shoulder while Warren Feeney is also out with an ankle injury. Apart from those two John Sheridan has a full squad to chose from including two former Millers - Guy Branston and Reuben Reid

Player to watch: Reuben Reid

Former Millers' striker who has been on loan to Plymouth from Yeovil since January. Has only put the ball in the net a couple of times since he moved to Home Park but will probably score against us!

Rotherham United Team News:

Steve Evans is hoping that Michael O'Connor, who came off during Tuesday's game, will recover in time to play and that top scorer Daniel Nardiello passes a late fitness test. It is thought that Mark Bradley won't make the game although Daniel Kearns, who hasn't featured since the beginning of April, will be fit. David Noble has been sidelined with a virus and it isn't sure if he will be well enough to play.

Player to watch: Craig Morgan

Craig has proved his worth in the Millers defence since coming back from injury in November

Ref Watch:

DAVID COOTE from Nottinghamshire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers last game of the season next Saturday is at home when former manager Andy Scott brings his Aldershot Town side to the New York Stadium. Kick-off is 3.00pm
