This season unlike last, Bournemouth and the Millers have the luxury of not starting on minus points. Both have got off to a good start, winning their opening games. Mark Robins talks to the official site, themillers.co.uk, of the tough task the match brings.
"Since Eddie Howe has gone in there he has turned things around. From the game at Don Valley last year where we won 1-0 they looked way off Grimsby in the battle for survival, so all credit to them for getting out of it, and in the end by a fair margin"
With Adam Le Fondre joining the Millers this week from Rochdale to add to his squad,and other than the long term injury that has delayed Drewe Broughton's start to the season, he has a full squd to pick from;
"Drewe is still missing but apart from that we have everyone available which is brilliant considering we have had two tough games. It will be two weeks before Drewe can start joining in again so it will be good to get him back.
"Adam is a good player, there is no doubt about it. He has great feet and he is a box player which is someone that we haven't had for a while and he can finish. He is a confident lad and he has already told me that he is going to beat my 26 goal record and I sincerely hope that he does it," said Robins.
