Match Preview

Cresswell and Fenton face fitness tests Rotherham caretaker boss Andy Liddell will wait on the fitness of two key players before naming his side to take on Morecambe. Defenders Ryan Cresswell and Nick Fenton are facing a race against time to be fit for the clash. Fenton (leg) stands a better chance of lining up against the Shrimpers but both will undergo late fitness tests. Youngster Luke Ashworth deputised at the heart of the defence during the 3-1 defeat at Shrewsbury but was substituted at the break. Liddell will weigh up whether to give him the nod once again or opt for Jason Taylor, the man who replaced him. There have been 15 goals in the Millers' last three matches, but they drew 0-0 at the Globe Arena in August. Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy is boosted by the return of midfielder Stewart Drummond for the trip to Rotherham. Drummond missed last weekend's 3-0 home defeat to Wycombe as he was serving a one-match ban but he will come back into contention to face the Millers. Defender Laurie Wilson will be assessed after coming off after just 28 minutes of last weekend's defeat and Paul Scott (knee) and Paul Mullin (back) are sidelined. McIlroy has enjoyed a successful five-year tenure as Shrimps boss and brought the club into the Football League for the first time. Yet the current campaign has been a struggle and McIlroy`s men lie just three places above the relegation zone. McIlroy said: "I am totally honest with myself and fully admit that the results haven't been good enough for me this season."

Match Report

Millers slump continues Rotherham`s promotion hopes took another blow after a miserable home defeat to Morecambe. Rotherham hit the post and then had an effort cleared off the line inside the opening three minutes, before Marcus Marshall twice shot wide, goalkeeper Barry Roche saved at the feet of Adam Le Fondre, Nicky Law shot straight at Roche and Ryan Taylor had a header saved. At the other end Phil Jevons got in behind Rotherham's back four, but Andy Warrington saved, then Warrington saved well from Jimmy Spencer and Jevons had a shot tipped over the bar. But the worst miss was a header from Morecambe midfielder Garry Hunter. He headed into the ground and the ball went up and over the bar when it seemed he couldn't miss. In the second half the chances dried up, and a dour stalemate looked on the cards until eight minutes from the end when the visitors grabbed a winner. Kevan Hurst picked out Spencer just inside the area and his angled drive beat Warrington to probably put the final nail in Rotherham's promotion coffin.
