Match Preview

Scott's welcome problem Rotherham manager Andy Scott has a selection headache of the right kind when Bristol Rovers visit Don Valley. The Millers are unbeaten in the last four games and having kept the same side for three of those, Scott opted to make two changes for Tuesday's 0-0 draw at Gillingham. Richard Naylor and Kieron Cadogan were the men to miss out but after the rest they are chomping at the bit to get back in the side and will go head-to-head with Michael Raynes and Lewis Grabban respectively to earn their shirt back. Gareth Evans is upping his rehabilitation from a back injury but, although he is training again, he will not feature against Mark McGhee's men. Luke Foster (knee) is the only absentee while goalkeeper Jamie Annerson, who has recently recovered from a serious knee injury, has joined npower League Two rivals Bradford on loan. Bristol Rovers boss Mark McGhee has defensive concerns. Gary Sawyer will miss a further fortnight with a hamstring problem, with fellow defender Aaron Downes on the sidelines for at least a month with knee cartilage damage. Goalkeeper Michael Poke is set to feature for the Pirates for the last time with his loan from Brighton due to expire. McGhee is exploring the option of extending the 26-year-old's stay at the Memorial Stadium but has not closed the door on a swift return to action for former number one keeper Scott Bevan. He told Gas Player: "If Pokey goes we can look for someone else or Scott can step up. He's got to show me that he's the man, and if he wants the opportunity he can have it." Defender Adam Virgo (knee) and midfielder Wayne Brown (ankle) remain long-term absentees.

Match Report

Dorman late show sinks Millers Bristol Rovers claimed all three points as Andy Dorman fired home in the second minutes of added time to secure a 1-0 win and hit Rotherham's fading play-off hopes There was little to cheer for either side in a disappointing first half. Rotherham struggled to find a way through a packed Rovers defence as the visitors frequently pulled ten men back behind the ball. When Rovers did break out, Mustapha Carayol usually led the charge, but there was no-one to turn in his excellent cross after ten minutes and then Chris Zebroski fired Carayol's cross into the side netting. Rotherham had to wait until the 30th minute for a clear chance, but Alex Revell's first touch let him down and he shot over Four minutes later Sam Wood just failed to reach Lewis Grabban's cross from the left and in first half added time Grabban's goal bound shot was deflected for a corner. Rotherham should have broken the deadlock four minutes after the break when Revell's first-time ball over the top found Grabban and he raced into the penalty area but steered his shot wide of Scott Bevan and wide of the upright. And Rotherham spurned another golden chance after 70 minutes when Bevan could only parry Grabban's shot but Revell fired the lose ball over the bar. And Dorman's injury time winner came when he lashed home substitute Eliot Richards' cross.
