The game between Rotherham United and Southend United in League Two on Saturday, 15th January 2011 at 15:00 takes centre stage for FootyMad's preview analysis.
Southend Utd. travel to take on Rotherham United at Don Valley Stadium, Sheffield on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 11 games played, Shrimpers have recorded 2 wins, and Rotherham U. have come away with 5 victories.
The last time the two teams met at Rotherham U. was back in September 2005, over five years ago, as the visitors ran out cosy 2 - 4 winners in a League One match.
