Head2Head & Team News - Bury FC

Last updated : 11 March 2008 By Deano
Well its another crucial game for the Millers tonight, as old boss Alan Knill lines up on the touchline against his former club for the first time.

He recorded victory is his first match in charge against Bradford City, and since then has had a positive reaction from his players as they look to climb away from relegation danger.

Knill secured the services of Adam Rooney on loan after coaching him during his reign at Chesterfield, and the striker returns tonight from a knee problem to cause a headache for the Rotherham back four.

Elsewhere Dave Challinor, famous for once having the longest recorded throw in the English football, returns to the defence after overcoming a similar injury to Rooney.

Knill says he isn't out to prove a point however as the Millers arrive at Gigg Lane for the first tiem in seven years.

His counterpart Mark Robins has no fresh injury concerns and again picks from the same squad that secured a 1-1 draw at Shrewsbury at the weekend. Derek Holmes may be dropped after an ineffective performance, but it depends on which formation the manager goes with.
