New York Stadium
28 September 2013
Rotherham United welcome Peterborough United to the New York Stadium this afternoon in what is fifth place taking on second place.
While the Millers are still unbeaten in the league this season Posh have lost just one game, at the end of August, but have gained thirteen points on their travels with the Millers winning their last two games at home.
Steve Evans - Peterborough are full of talented players plus a Manager who keeps getting them promoted and a good Chairman who backs them along with a three to four million strike force. It's a real tough game for us and a real benchmark in how we are going to perform in League One.
Darren Ferguson - Rotherham are a good side with a manager who knows how to get teams promoted. I fully expect them to be in the top six at the end of the season which makes this a very important game for us. We want to continue our good away form but they have some good players and have made an excellent start. Obviously they have players that we know quite well with Lee Frecklington, Craig Morgan and Kieran Agard all at the club.
The Millers will again be without Claude Davis, Michael O'Connor and David Worrall and Steve Evans will probably go with the same team that started last weekend at Walsall. The only change he might make is Adam Collin in goal for Scott Shearer but, to be honest, I'll be surprised if that happened.

Darren Ferguson will probably be without Lee Tomlin who left the Stadium of Light during the week on crutches in their Capital One game against Sunderland. Mark Little and Nathaniel Knight-Percival are also out after being red carded last weekend. Paul Taylor is back with the Posh on loan from Ipswich and looks set to be in the starting eleven.

The Millers make the long journey to Griffin Park next Saturday to take on Brentford. Kick-off is 3.00pm
