Notts County vs. Rotherham

Meadow Lane

Millers Travel to County

The fixtures are coming along pretty quickly at the moment and we find ourselves in Nottingham on Saturday to face a County side that haven't actually been pulling up any trees so far this season although they were unlucky to lose out in injury time to MK Dons on Boxing Day.

The Millers don't have a great record against County - who drew at Millmoor earlier in the season. The last time the Millers played at Meadow Lane was in 2001 and despite Guy Branston giving them the lead at half-time they went on to lose four-one. We have to go back to 1956 to find a last Millers League win here although they did win an FA Cup game in the late 60's.

Vital Quotes:

County captain, Adam Tann, has told his players that they have to cut out the mistakes at the back. 'We have to muck in together, keep going and focus on this game. Hopefully we can keep a clean sheet as we haven't had one for a while.'

Millers boss, Mark Robins, said 'We have to prepare right and get the legs right and the energy levels back up. They came to our place and took two points off us so we need to put that right.'

Notts County Team News:

Mike Edwards and Jay Smith are no where near ready for a place in the squad after suffering long injuries. Krystian Pearce should come back in after serving a ban. Former Miller Kevin Pilkington should look to keep his place in goal.

Player to watch: Richard Butcher

Scored a great header on Boxing Day

Rotherham Team News:

Injuries are coming thick and fast for the Millers at the moment with major doubts over Derek Holmes and Mark Joseph and doubts over Peter Holmes, Paul Hurst and Stephen Brogan. Ian Ross, on loan at Millmoor and who has recently been on loan at Notts County, should keep his starting place.

Player to watch: Ian Ross

Had two good games for the Millers over the Christmas period

Ref Watch:

Mr Fred Graham of Essex

Next Fixtures:

The Millers next fixture is on New Years Day at home to Macclesfield and it is a 'Fans for the Future Initiative' kids for a quid day.

Kick off is 3pm
