ROTHERHAM United are confident that tonight's clash with Bournemouth will go ahead.
Ground staff have been pulling out the stops to ensure the playing surface at Don Valley is playable, with mobile heaters brought in from Doncaster Rovers' Keepmoat Stadium to thaw out the section of the pitch that caused the postponement of Saturday's game against Macclesfield.
"We're making every effort, " said the Millers chief operating officer Paul Douglas.
"The ground staff are working overtime to get the pitch in the best possible condition and with the improving weather conditions, we are very hopeful of getting the match played.
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Keepmoat for their help and also thank the staff who have worked tirelessly to get the pitch ready for what will be a very important game."
Temperatures today are expected to be as high as 5 degrees, giving the Millers a fighting chance of playing.
Bournemouth, already in the region ahead of the game, are just four points ahead of the Millers in the table, with Rotherham having three matches in hand.
Kick-off is 7.45pm.
