Match Preview

Rovers duo out of Millers clash Bristol Rovers will continue to be without Danny Woodards and Wayne Brown for the home clash with Rotherham. Defender Woodards is still recovering from a rib injury sustained in the match against Cheltenham on October 1, while midfielder Brown damaged his ankle in the same encounter and is expected to be out long-term. Rovers are suspension-free, however, and buoyed by the return to fitness of captain Matt Gill after a hamstring problem. Meanwhile, striker Scott McGleish has received the all-clear following a knee scan and should keep his place in the starting line-up. McGleish was assessed after picking up a minor knock during training last week, but started the 3-0 defeat at Oxford on Saturday and has been passed fit once again. Defender Troy Brown will return to the Rotherham squad. The centre-half has been away on international duty with Wales Under-21s for the last 10 days but returned to training on Wednesday and is in contention for a start. Manager Andy Scott has been working tirelessly in an attempt to strengthen his backline after injuries and poor performances have blighted the Millers in recent weeks, but has so far been frustrated in the loan market. That may mean he is forced to stick with Johnny Mullins in defence, despite hinting that the centre-half is struggling with fitness following his return from a serious knee injury. Attacker Gareth Evans is pushing for a start after illness last week restricted him to a substitute's appearance against Burton and will battle it out with Ben Pringle for a place in Scott's side. Skipper Ryan Cresswell faces another four weeks out with ankle trouble, midfielder Mark Bradley underwent surgery on Tuesday to repair a dislocated shoulder and goalkeeper Jamie Annerson is still some way off recovering from a knee injury.

Match Report

Rampant Rovers thrash Millers Bristol Rovers eased the pressure on boss Paul Buckle with a 5-2 hammering of 10-man Rotherham. Scott McGleish netted a first-half double, including one from the spot, with Cian Bolger, Lee Brown and Joe Anyinsah also notching. It took 10 minutes for McGleish to break the deadlock, turning home Craig Stanley's cross from close range. He doubled his tally with a 29th-minute penalty after Scott Rendell had been fouled by Johnny Mullins. Defender Bolger headed Rovers' third from a Matt Gill free kick, but Jason Taylor pulled a goal back for the Millers before the break, sweeping home a Lewis Grabban pass. Rotherham were back in it when Danny Schofield curled a 53rd minute shot past Scott Bevan, but the sending off of new loan-signing Guy Branston for a two-footed tackle four minutes later saw Rovers regain their grip through a Brown volley and a fierce cross-shot from substitute Joe Anyinsah.
