Rotherham United welcome Oxford United to the New York Stadium this afternoon in a game which sees twelfth take on seventeenth in League Two.
While the Millers will be wanting to put the first league defeat at their new ground behind them the U’s will be looking for their first league win since winning three on the bounce at the start of the season.
Paul Raynor – Chris (Wilder) may have got a lot of injuries but he’s got a really good squad and he’ll be fielding a very competent side on Saturday. They’re on a run of defeats and they will be just as hungry to put that right as we are. we will need to be on our guard and at our best to nullify their threat and then we can impose ourselves on the game
Mickey Lewis – It’s a tough game. They are a really good side and people are expecting them to do well but, at this point in the season, there is only three points between us and them. We want to pick up wins as soon as we can and anyone can beat anyone in this league. Rotherham are a good side but so are we.
