Wimbledon Seek to Rebound against Rotherham

By Kevin Butler

Struggling AFC Wimbledon host early pace-setters Rotherham United at the Kingsmeadow in South West London.

The hosts currently sit 21st in the League One table, having failed to register a home victory in their last three attempts, scoring only once.

Victory away at fellow strugglers Northampton Town will give the London side a boost, coupled with the news that on loan Rangers forward Harry Forrester has passed fit after he picked up a knock after scoring on the weekend.

Ghanaian striker Kessi Appiah once again misses out after suffering a hamstring injury in last month’s home defeat to MK Dons.

In contrast, Rotherham have endured a flying start to the season. The Millers currently boast the league’s second best goal difference and sit fourth with 24 points from their opening 13 fixtures.

Star forward Kieffer Moore found the net for the tenth time this campaign in the Millers last league outing against Scunthorpe, more than any other striker in the division.

The Millers will look to build on their impressive goal scoring form this season, having netted 14 times in their last seven league outings.

Captain Lee Frecklington, who re-joined training on Monday is seeking to return after missing the last home victory over Scunthorpe. Winger Jon Taylor who has missed the last five games due to a knee problem could also return to action.

Manager Paul Warne has no fresh injury concerns as the side relegated from the Championship last season look to make it four league wins on the bounce.
