'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Millers vs. Morecambe

Millmoor

20 October 3pm

Millers v Shrimps

This will be the first time that Rotherham and Morecambe have met in a League game. The Shrimps, who have surprised many by being ninth in League Two at the moment, only came into the Football League this season via the Conference Play-Offs. Their away form has been indifferent and the Millers will hope to build on the last home League win against Mansfield tomorrow.

Vital Quotes:

Millers manager, Mark Robins, said, 'It will be another hard game for us. I watched the play-off final and Morecambe fully deserved their win. Their side was strong last season and they have added to it since.'

Millers Team News:

Some good news coming out of Millmoor is that long term injury victim, Mark Hudson, could be named in the squad tomorrow. Derek Holmes is having treatment on a bruised foot and along with Liam King should be fit. Marc Joseph has started training this week after a kidney infection but it will probably be too soon for him to be included.

Player to watch: Ian Sharps

Strong and solid at the back.

Morecambe Team News:

Fraser McLachlan has a broken leg but Morecambe have no fresh injuries ahead of the game tomorrow. Damian Allen, who limped off in last Friday's game is said to be OK as are Carl Baker, Joe Lewis, Garry Thompson and Jim Bentley. Striker,Jon Newby scored two in a reserve outing this week and this can only strengthen his claims for a starting place.

Player to watch: Carl Baker

Top scorer for Morecambe after joining from Southport in the summer.

Ref Watch:

The referee is Mr Darren Deadman from Cambridgeshire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers are away next weekend, Saturday, 27th October at Dagenham and Redbridge, kick-off 3pm
