Cheltenham Town: McGlashan keen to pile the misery on Rotherham boss
JERMAINE McGlashan will be hoping to pile on the misery for a manager he could have been playing under last season as Cheltenham Town visit Rotherham United on Saturday.
The Millers began the season among the favourites for promotion following their move to a new ground after four years of exile at the Don Valley athletics stadium in Sheffield.
Controversial boss Steve Evans was also able to splash the cash on some big-name close season signings such as ex-Robins striker Kayode Odejayi.
The Millers' form at the New York Stadium has been strong with six wins from eight games, but things have not gone to plan on the road and they were thrashed 5-0 at Dagenham and Redbridge last Saturday, leaving them ninth in the table.

Evans tried to snap up McGlashan in January when he was manager of Crawley Town, but the winger joined Cheltenham from Aldershot Town in a club-record equalling deal.
He has been a big hit with Robins fans, but after being well shackled by Burton left-back Nathan Stanton in last Saturday's 1-0 win McGlashan is hungry to produce a sparkling performance at Rotherham as Cheltenham bid to maintain their excellent away form.
"We know Rotherham are going to come at us after the way they lost on Saturday, but we want to keep our run going," McGlashan said.
"I have been here for ten months now and I am happy to playing regularly, improving all the time and I just want to stay in the side, be more consistent and add some more goals now."
McGlashan was rested for the FA Cup first round tie against Yate Town, with boss Mark Yates saying he needed a breather due to the amount of cuts and bruises he had suffered from opposing defenders.
The 24-year-old has come to accept he is going to be the subject of rough treatment, but he relishes the challenge of teams doubling up in a bid to stop him causing damage on the right flank.
"I am immune to it now and I expect it every game because of the type of player I am," he said.
"I am going to be kicked, but it's bittersweet because when you get three points it definitely makes you feel better.
"I was restricted against Burton and the left-back had a good game. It was tough in the second half, but we kept plugging away and we got our rewards at the end. I can't wait for Rotherham now."
â Robins boss Mark Yates is in the running to scoop the October Manager of the Month award in League Two.
Yates, whose side won four, drew one and lost one League game in October, will be up against Gillingham boss Martin Allen and Chris Wilder of Oxford United for the award.
The winner will be announced on Friday.
