MK Dons come to Millmoor this afternoon leading League Two, eight points ahead of the Millers in third place.
Paul Ince will be bringing his team here knowing that they have an impressive away record of just one loss in nine but he won’t be thinking that his team will have an easy game against Rotherham who have the second best home record in the league at the moment.
The Millers will have to stand strong but manager, Mark Robins, said that they will need no motiviation this afternoon.
Dons defender Dean Lewington was one of the players still playing when the Millers ground out a goalless draw that relegated the Dons a couple of seasons ago. ‘With our away record we have nothing to fear,’ Lewington said, ‘we will respect Rotherham but will go there knowing we can get points.’
Millers boss, Mark Robins, said, ‘We need to be nice and bright and keep cool heads.’
Rotherham Team News:
If a late check on virus victim Chris O’Grady proves that he won’t be fit to play, it would seem logical that Mark Robins will put two-goal scorer, Ryan Taylor up front alongside Derek Holmes. Marc Newsham is another possible replacement but it might be he is either on the bench or in midfield
