League Two
Rotherham United v Macclesfield Town
31 January 2009, DVS, 3pm
The Millers go into tomorrow's game looking to turn around a three match losing and scoreless streak.

A welcome result like the 1-0 win over Bournemouth last time out at DVS would be nice, as the side returns home after three consecutive away games.

Rotherham have never lost a league encounter between the clubs, with Macc's only wins coming in the FA Cup and the old LDV Vans competition since the teams first met 21 years ago.

Regards the team news, Jamie Green is again expected to miss out for Mark Robins' men with an ankle problem and Richie Barker is still out, but elsewhere it's anyone's guess as to what the side could be. Pablo Mills made a return from injury at Darlington in midweek and could start again.

A recall for Mark Lynch may be on the cards with Dale Tonge moving into midfield, and also a start for Mark Burchill or Omar Garcia in attack with a distinct lack of finishing touches being applied to chances created of late.

Visiting boss Kieth Alexander has sealed the signature of 20 year-old Rikki Bains and he's available for selection. Macc are also looking to strengthen upfront after the recent departure of Martin Gritton to Chesterfield.

Alexander has just one injury doubt as his team look to make it five games unbeaten, as the highly rated Izak Reid misses the trip.
