Scott’s Millers look to bounce back

ANDY Scott will be looking for his Rotherham team to bounce back from their mid-week Johnstone’s Paint Trophy defeat to local rivals Sheffield United.

Friday, 7th October 2011, 3:49 pm

They play host to a Burton Albion side that are two places below them in the league at Don Valley stadium on Saturday.

The Millers lost out to a 97th minute winner from Sheffield United’s Ched Evans in a contest that they will feel they should have got something out of.

The cup defeat means the Millers are without a win in their last five games in all competitions.

While Burton Albion came back from two goals behind to force a draw against Bradford in their last league encounter.

Rotherham will be without defender Mark Bradley after he dislocated a shoulder in the mid-week tie.

Boss Scott said Bradley, who had to be stretchered off the pitch, would be out for around three to four months after picking up the injury in an innocuous looking challenge.

This injury will be a blow for the side who are having a defensive crisis at the moment with many of the team injured or unfit.

Captain Ryan Cresswell remains out with an ankle injury that he picked up in training.

For Burton Albion Cleveland Taylor may start for the side after he completed 90 minutes for the reserves during a closed doors friendly against AFC Telford on Tuesday.

Both teams are in need of a win in the game both coming into the match short of form.

Burton will leapfrog the Millers in the league table if they manage to beat them on Saturday.
