Action time for Millers striker
David Ball: desperate to get back to winning ways.

STRIKER David Ball wants Rotherham United to start turning their words into actions, starting at Blackpool on Saturday.
Ball admits the Millers' slide to 13th in League One and the amount of goals they've conceded is not good enough.
The last clean sheet for Paul Warne's side came in their previous league victory, at home to Scunthorpe on October 14, since when they've shipped 17 goals in seven league games, ending with last weekend's 2-1 reverse at Bristol Rovers.
Ball told the Advertiser: "I feel for the gaffer because for the last couple of weeks he has had to explain the way we're conceding and losing games.
"If you look at recent matches, we've certainly been in them but goals change games and to concede in the manner we did against Bristol is very frustrating as a group.
"We can't keeping standing here and saying that. It has to come from within.
"It's really frustrating because we shouldn't be where we are but we are for a reason and we have to find a way out."

There is more from David Ball, plus all the build-up to Saturday's match and the latest from the Millers camp in our 24-page pullout in Friday's Advertiser.
