Shrewsbury Town v Rotherham United
06 December 2008, The New Meadow, 3pm
The Millers face their second trip to the New Meadow tomorrow looking to inflict only a second league defeat at home on their opponents.
The Shrews have won seven out of their nine league games this season on their own soil and will prove a very tough nut to crack, scoring freely and closing the back door shut tightly on opposing attackers.
One man they'll have to try and breach is ex-Millers captain Graham Coughlan, whilst another former Rotherham player comes face to face with the club again, Dave Hibbert.
Hibbert is set to start on the bench as Jamie White looks likely to start upfront. Richard Walker sits out the game through suspension.
The Millers are without captain Pablo Mills who will miss the next five weeks, detaisl of his exploratory stomach operation can be found on our homepage. Elsewhere Mark Robins faces a headache after Ryan Taylor scored two for the reserves in midweek, and Reuben Reid came off the bench to equalise at Exeter in the last fixture two weeks ago.
One of those two is likely to partner either Richie Barker or Drewe Broughton.
Peter Holmes or Mark Hudson will make way for the returning Danny Harrison who has served his three match suspension and is likely to come straight back into the starting 11.
Robins told the BBC: "Shrewsbury are a strong side, they've brought in a lot of players over the close season.
"Paul Simpson has gone in and they've had a good go at trying to get promoted, they're good at home, and we'll have to be at our best to get a win."
