Millers v Wimbledon Preview

AFC Wimbledon
Rotherham United

Cherry Red Record Stadium

17 October 2017


Rotherham United make the long trek down to Kingston Upon Thames to take on AFC Wimbledon at the Cherry Red Record Stadium for just the third time in their history.

The Wombles are currently sitting top of the bottom four of League One but last weekend saw them go to Sixfields and beat fellow struggler's Northampton Town one-nil while Rotherham had a two-nil home win against Scunthorpe.

The last away game for the Millers saw them beat Rochdale one-nil and Wimbledon's last home game was also against Rochdale which ended goalless.

Vital Quotes:

Neil Cox - I would have thought that Rotherham will try to win the game and they will not sit back but we are at home and will be on the front foot and work hard to create as many chances as we can.

Paul Warne - Wimbledon play really attractive football but my lads go out and believe they are going to win every game and I'm really hopeful we can bring something back with us.

AFC Wimbledon Team News:

Wimbledon will be without midfielder Dean Parrett who has had an op on a groin problem but after a scare with an ankle injury Harry Forrester should be fit to play.

Player to watch: Barry Fuller

Hard defender who will be looking to keep the Millers at bay tonight

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers injury room is getting quite full with Jon Taylor, Darren Potter, Lee Frecklington and Jamie Proctor definitely out and Ryan Williams a doubt.

Player to watch: Richard O'Donnell

Was on top form on Saturday and will want to keep that up this evening.
