Forest v Millers

After the Millers winning on Saturday at home to Gillingham and Forest losing to Millwall the Millers fans are certainly up for a trip to the City Ground.

If the Millers are to keep the slender hopes of avoiding the drop to Division Two alive, it's three points they must get. Though Forest, who are pushing for automatic promotion, will be after them too.

It looks like being a bumper crowd tomorrow for the Easter Monday fixture with Forest having sold 25 000 seats.

Forest are third at the moment and the Millers second from bottom with Forests home form being good and the Millers away form not, it is odds on that the home side will run out winners. But then again, football is a funny game, as someone once said.

Vital Quotes:

Mark Robins, newley appointed as Rotherham manager, has said, 'Forest are a dangerous side with some good players. We will have to be on our toes. But, they lost on Saturday which proves they are beatable.'

Nottingham Forest Team News:

Lewis McGugan will probably get a recall to the squad after missing out on the trip to Millwall with a dead leg. And it looks likely manager, Colin Calderwood, will stay with Jack Lester and Grant Holt up front.

Player to watch: David Prutton

Prutton has regained his place in the side and is most dangerous in a central role but can also play out wide.

Rotherham United Team News:

Mark Robins will almost certainly name the same squad that beat Gillingham on Saturday. Although he could start with Marc Newsham who scored the winner.

Player to watch: Delroy Facey

Cooking on gas at the moment.

Ref Watch:

Mike Thorpe from Suffolk

Next Fixtures:

The Millers are at home next Saturday, 14 April when Carlisle are the visitors. Kick off is 3pm

Considering our current position you probably need the 3 points more than we do. Then again, we are strong at home so it should be a home banker.

We need three points from every remaining game WMBFA, so don't be too upset if we manage to pinch them tomorrow. Good luck for the rest of the season, after 5pm tomorrow.
