AFC W'don v Rotherham preview

Billy Knott returns to the AFC Wimbledon squad.
The on-loan Sunderland youngster missed last weekend’s 2-1 defeat at Accrington with a knee injury but resumed training on Monday and could go straight back into the starting line-up.
However, fellow midfielder Sammy Moore is still suspended after collecting 10 bookings for the season.
Striker Jason Prior could be added to the squad after coming through a reserve outing in midweek.
Prior has managed just one substitute appearance since joining the Dons in January due to a knee problem.
Callum McNaughton is out for the season with a cruciate injury while fellow centre-back Pim Balkestein plays the final game of his loan spell from Brentford.
Rotherham will still be without defender Michael Raynes.
The centre-half missed last week’s 1-0 victory over Hereford with a hamstring injury which he is still recovering from so Ryan Cresswell will continue alongside Johnny Mullins.
Caretaker manager Darren Patterson will therefore pick from the same squad as last weekend and looks set to name the same side.
Veteran Richard Naylor and fellow defender Luke Foster (both knee) continue to occupy the treatment room and will not feature again this term.
The trip to Kingsmeadow will be Patterson’s fourth game in charge and he is enjoying his temporary stint at the helm while the Millers search for a permanent successor to Andy Scott.
He said: “The first few days were difficult, but I have enjoyed coaching and working with these lads so it has been good so far. The staff have been first class are very hard working and good at their jobs.”
