Swansea vs. Rotherham

Liberty Stadium



Preview: Swans vs Millers

Rotherham United visit the Liberty Stadium for the first time tomorrow as another side visit to battle for valuable points to avoid the drop to League 2.

2 games in 3 days could take its toll on the players so Jackett could well make some more changes to the side to encount for this.

The Millers went close to doing us a big favour as they drew 2-2 with the Bees yesterday. Brentford came back from behind twice to get a point.

Vital Quotes:

Swansea Team News:

Leon Britton is out with injury while O'Leary returned to the bench yesterday after an injury.

Jackett will need to rest some players tomorrow after only playing in Blackpool yesterday. O'Leary and Knight especially will want to start (but in their preferred positions).

Player to watch: Andy Robinson

100% commitment and 17 goals from midfield, at this rate he'll beat Trundle's scoring tally!

Rotherham Team News:

Millers boss Andy Knill will select from the same 16-man squad that drew 2-2 with Brentford and despite admitting his side are tired after Saturday's game, the same line-up is expected.

Player to watch: Lee Williamson

Vital Rotherham editor Dave Fletcher says we'll have to watch out for Lee Williamson. He's scored 4 goals in 33 league games from midfield. The 23 year old started off with Mansfield and then joined Northampton last season after 5 years at Field Mill.

Butler is Rotherham's top scorer with 8 goals in 33 starts in all competitions.

Match Facts & Stats

Rotherham are 2 points ahead of the bottom 4 and after we gave Blackpool a boost in their fight against the drop, the Millers will also want to widen the gap from the relegation zone.

They drew 2-2 with 2nd placed Brentford - a game they should have won so they'll certainly be no pushovers tomorrow.

They've won 3, drawn 2 and lost 3 in their last 8 games.
