With a pitch inspection due for 9.30am in the morning and the forecast for minus two overnight around Don Valley, the game going ahead is a serious doubt – but, as they say, where there’s a will etc etc and looking out of the window here in Rotherham, the ice/snow does appear to be melting.
Both teams had last weekends games called off so will be hoping this game goes ahead to stop a backlong building up.
The Millers have a good record at Don Valley, not having lost there this season in the League, although, as Manager, Ronnie Moore says, there have been a fair number of draws.
The Quakers are bottom of League Two having lost ten of their eleven games away from the Northern Echo Darlington Arena so far this season.
