Match Preview

Elliott worry for Millers Rotherham are waiting on the fitness of on-loan striker Tom Elliott ahead of their home game against Cheltenham. The teenager is struggling with a knee injury but is hopeful of proving his fitness in time to feature. Summer signing Johnny Mullins, yet to appear following his switch from Stockport, has not fully recovered following a calf injury and the game is likely to come too soon for him. Centre-half Nick Fenton is still struggling with a similar problem and will definitely miss out. Strikers Ryan Taylor and Tom Pope and midfielder Dale Tonge, still waiting for their first appearances of the season, all remain sidelined with metatarsal injuries. The Millers drew both of their league games against Cheltenham last season. Cheltenham will be without Martin Riley for the trip after the defender was ruled out for three to four weeks with a minor hamstring tear. David Bird replaced Riley when he limped out of last weekend's 3-2 victory over Crewe and is expected to start in his place, although Andy Gallinagh is also in contention Theo Lewis was given the all-clear to resume training earlier this week following a mild bout of glandular fever but the game will probably come too soon for him. Boss Mark Yates expects to alter his tactical approach for the Don Valley Stadium clash as his side look to build on their impressive start to the season. "I don't think I'm going to go with a (midfield) diamond this weekend," Yates told Cheltenham's official website. "I might change my shape a little because they have some good wide players. I have one or two decisions to make. "We have to make sure we don't get carried away with a pleasing start and I'll be asking the players to maintain their standards."

Match Report

Rotherham 6 Cheltenham 4 Adam Le Fondre pulled Rotherham out of the mire as they overturned a 3-1 deficit to beat Cheltenham 6-4 thanks to his stunning four-goal haul. Jeff Goulding got Cheltenham going after just four minutes before Le Fondre levelled with his first - a sweet hit from the edge of the box after a touch from Tom Elliott. Cheltenham then took over, with Wes Thomas (28) and Shaun Jeffers (36) netting as Rotherham's defence lost their shape and their way. But Danny Harrison got Rotherham back in it four minutes before the break and Le Fondre netted twice in the space of three second-half minutes - the second after his penalty had been saved. Ryan Cresswell (55) then gave United some breathing space and Le Fondre added another while there was still time for Thomas to miss a spot-kick and Keith Lowe to add a consolation.
