Head2Head & Match Preview - The Gaffers

Karl Robinson and Steve Evans preview tomorrows clash at Stadium:MK with their respective radio stations.

Robinson is looking to end a run of three straight league defeats after starting the season unbeaten, similar to the Millers, but has been linked with the job at Sheffield United this week.

However, he moved to quash such rumours and says he's happy to stay put.

"I'm flattered and honoured, but I'm flattered and honoured to be here too", he told BBC Three Counties.

"I have a long-term goal with Milton Keynes and I'm very happy here. There was never an official approach. The last few results on the road haven't been great, but now we're back at home.

"We love playing here, but we know Rotherham will be very hard to break down. I predict they will be in the top eight this year. It will be a very difficult afternoon, but we've had a really good week.

"We have a very young group here now - I think five of the starting eleven will be 22, 23 or under, and that's not been mentioned enough."

Millers gaffer Evans paid tribute to the job Robinson has done with the controversial Dons in the past few seasons, but says we have nothing to fear tomorrow.

"I think Karl has done a great job. They are a proper team and they have built that over four to five years", said Evans talking to Radio Sheffield.

"It will be another real benchmark for us as they are a quality side. They lost recently to Peterborough but they tore them to shreds that day.

"So we respect them but we don't fear them. We are going to have be in their faces, we can't go there and stand off them. They are a better team than Swindon and will finish higher in the league than Swindon."

Rotherham are set to welcome back Michael O'Connor and Kari Arnason into the starting line up, whilst the home side have midfielder Samir Carruthers and defender Lee Hodson available.

Millers fans who haven't taken up a ticket from the initial 1,000 allocation, which is now sold out, can pay at the MK ticket office tomorrow via cash only.

Tickets are reduced to £10 and £1 concessions due to the family activity day.
