Match Preview


Injury troubles for Millers

Rotherham have selection problems ahead of their npower League Two opener with Lincoln at Don Valley.

Defender Dale Tonge and striker Ryan Taylor are nursing metatarsal injuries sustained in pre-season while new signing Johnny Mullins is also struggling with a hamstring injury picked up shortly after joining the club.

Striker Tom Pope has not recovered from a foot injury that curtailed his involvement at the back end of last season, while Nick Fenton and new signing Mark Bradley are struggling with injuries picked up in training.

Manager Ronnie Moore is likely to hand debuts to defenders Ryan Cresswell, Dean Holden and Tom Newey, midfielder Exodus Geohaghon and striker Tom Elliott, with Marcus Marshall, who has signed a permanent contract following last season's loan spell, set to be on the bench.

The Millers' promotion bid fell at the final hurdle last season with a play-off final defeat to Dagenham at Wembley and as they enter a fourth season in the bottom tier a rise to League One will be seen as a must for Moore's men.

The game against the Imps sees a repeat of the opening game of the 2008/09 campaign, which the Millers won 1-0.

Lincoln have no major fitness problems.

Defenders Paul Green (broken foot and wrist) and Adam Watts (broken leg) have recovered from the injuries that kept them sidelined towards the end of last season.

Manager Chris Sutton has eight new signings at his disposal with goalkeeper Joe Anyon, defender Jamie Clapham, midfielder Josh O`Keefe, wingers Albert Jarrett and Mustapha Carayol and strikers Gavin McCallum, Delroy Facey and Drewe Broughton, who could line up against his former club, all available.

Sutton could also call upon midfielder Shane Clarke and forward Craig Fagan after they were effectively taken off the transfer list after the club received no offers for the players over the summer.

Match Report

Millers leave it late Beaten play-off finalists Rotherham left it late to snatch a 2-1 win against battling Lincoln. After an early scare when Josh O'Keefe headed Albert Jarrett's fourth-minute corner over the crossbar, Rotherham made the perfect start. Last season's leading scorer Adam Le Fondre opened the scoring after eight minutes. Kevin Ellison's volleyed attempt was cleared off the line, but supreme poacher Le Fondre was on hand to slam home the loose ball. Referee Rob Shoebridge had to keep the lid on some robust tackles with three bookings before the break. Rotherham debutant Tom Elliott twice went close with headers, and just before the half-time whistle Ellison should have doubled Rotherham's lead but his piledriver from Elliott's pull back was blocked. Lincoln equalised eight minutes into the second half thanks to the pace of Mustapha Carayol out on the left. Goalkeeper Joe Anyon picked him out with a long goal-kick, and Carayol's pace won him the ball before he turned inside his marker and fired across Andy Warrington and into the far corner. Rotherham's determination finally paid off four minutes from the end. The home side threw men forward at every opportunity, and when Nicky Law forced over a cross from the right, skipper Ryan Cresswell headed home to mark his debut with a goal.
