Match preview & FA Cup team news - Wealdstone

Last updated : 07 November 2009 By Deano

As the Millers head to Wealdstone tomorrow, they're looking to end a shocking run of first round exits from the competition.

Indeed, the Millers last victory came after they dumped out Southampton in 2001/02 to progress to round four during boss Ronnie Moore's first spell in charge.

Aronnie moore bign under fire Moore would welcome any sort of victory tomorrow at the Vale, as the Millers opponents, three tiers below them, look to cause an upset.

Rotherham welcome the return of midfielder Nicky Law after a virus kept him out of last weeks draw with Aldershot, but are still missing the injured Marc Joseph and Micky Cummins.

Wealdstone are undefeated in all competitions since August 18th when they went down to Tooting & Mitcham in a Ryman League Premier fixture 2-0, and will hope to fair better than their opponents that day in round one as they were thrashed 5-0 at Stockport today.

The Stones come into the game on the back of a 2-1 victory over neighbours Harrow Borough in the FA Trophy second qualifying round in midweek. Former Millers youth player James Gray featured as a substitute in that match and could play a part tomorrow.

However boss Gordon Barrett will have to do without last seasons top scorer in attack, Greg Ngoyi, who picked up a straight red card in their fourth round qualifying win over Aylesbury.

The match is heading for a sell out of around 2,000, although a few Rotherham tickets remained unsold as home supporters continued to pick up tickets from the ground throughout Saturday.
