Rotherham United play their second consecutive home game in the league tomorrow when the visitors will be Darlington.
The Millers got back into winning ways on Tuesday in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and hope to continue the run tomorrow.
Darlington have had money lavished on them pre season – chairman George Houghton presented manager Dave Penney with a wage budget of £2m and told him to go and get a team together and Penney responded with thirteen new signings.
So, like the Millers, The Quakers side are just getting to know each other. Also like the Millers, the Quakers haven’t lost a game this season and they lie third in the table with eight points.
Mark Robins told the Official Site that he thinks the visitors will fancy their chances at Millmoor but he is hoping his own team cause an upset to the ‘big spenders of the division.’ He said that morale is high at the club at the moment and the lads are looking forward to tomorrow and are all eager to do well for the club.
Millers Team News:
Mark Robins will be leaving it as late as possible to name the starting eleven tomorrow in the hopes that defender Ian Sharps will be passed fit. If not it seems likely that Marc Joseph will fill in at centre half and probably Paul Hurst or Sam Duncum will be drafted in at the back. Peter Holmes missed the midweek game at Mansfield with an ankle injury but should be fit to start.
Player to watch: Stephen Brogan
a lad that is gaining confidence with each game he plays. His free kicks have been spot on this season.
Quakers Team News:
Dave Penney has doubts over ex Miller Scott Wiseman, Martin Smith, Patrick Collins, Clark Keltie and Neil Austin and Gleg Blundell and Ian Harty could be in for a start with deadline signing Barrau possibly in the squad.
Player to watch: Pawel Abbot
proving to be the second half of a good pairing up front with Tommy Wright, who was once supposed to be coming to Millmoor
