Rotherham United vs. Stevenage

New York Stadium

15 February 2014

3.00pm

Millers v Stevenage Preview

Rotherham United welcome Stevenage to the New York Stadium in which will be fifth v bottom in League One.

Both the Millers and 'Boro won the last games they played - the Millers at home against Leyton Orient and Stevenage at home to Gillingham - with both having a blank Saturday last weekend due to the weather. The last away game that 'Boro won was at the Keepmoat in the FA Cup with their last away win in the league being in November at Peterborough.

Vital Quotes:

Steve Evans - I think Stevenage have now got their best players back and I think they will be one of our toughest opponents in the next few games. They easily beat Gillingham and Graham will have set his team up to come here and they will be very much in our faces. They are a team who play on the front foot, they are very physical and they will be well organised.

Graham Westley - Steve has built a strong squad and they`re going well. He`s described us as a dangerous side and I think on Saturday we will be. It doesn`t matter what they bring, we`ll bring more and find a way to win. Steve has done a brilliant job there. With his non-league background he doesn`t get the credit he deserves but wherever he`s been he`s been able to build winning sides and that`s the strength he`s got. We certainly won`t under-estimate the challenge up there. They have got some experienced players and they are going really well and it`s up to us to do something about that.

Rotherham United Team News:

Rob Milsom is the only doubt for Steve Evans who could give a debut to Nicky Adams who signed on transfer deadline day.

Player to watch: Alex Revell

Scored three goals in the last two games and will be hoping to add to that this afternoon

Stevenage Team News:

Stevenage will give late fitness tests to Jon Ashton (groin) and Filipe Morais who got a bad knock last time out

Player to watch: Darius Charles

Fans favourite who can play left-back, centre-back and striker who scored two goals in their three-one win over Gillingham recently
