Millers v U's Preview

Rotherham United make the long journey down to Essex tonight for their re-arranged game with Colchester United.

The Millers go into this game on the back of a six-nil win while the U's lost away at Leyton Orient on Saturday.

Rotherham are in fourth place and haven't lost away from home since the end of December with Colchester are two places above the relegation spots and have lost their last two games at the Colchester Community Stadium.

Vital Quotes:

Joe Dunne - Against the top teams at the moment we are losing by the odd goal. We have to believe in ourselves and there is a lot to build on next year. And although our league position might not show it I think we are making great progress.
Gavin Massey - We know how well we played against Leyton Orient and we know what we can do so Rotherham should be no threat to us. We will be giving our all and we have to play just like we did at Leyton Orient but a bit more clinical.

Paul Raynor - We are looking forward to the game but they are a side who caused Leyton Orient all sorts of problems at the weekend. They've got some good players and a nice blend of experience and youngsters. And, as much as we were pleased with Saturday, we need to park that now and try and earn some points at Colchester.

Colchester United Team News:

Joe Dunne has Sanchez Watt available after serving a three match ban and there will be late fitness tests for Alex Gilbey and Drey Wright. Long term injury victim Josh Thompson is definitely out.

Player to watch: Sanchez Watt

After missing out through suspension the 'dangerous' winger will be hoping to get back into the side

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers will be without Kari Arnason who is away on International duty with Iceland. Claude Davis and Wes Thomas, who both missed out on Saturday with niggles will be travelling. Miles Addison could start in place of Arnason while there could be a first start since the end of December for Michael O'Connor. Rob Milsom is also available.

Player to watch: Haris Vuckic
