Plymouth Albion will be looking to make it two home wins in a row tomorrow night when they entertain Rotherham at Brickfields (7.45pm).

Albion opened their season with a 22-11 win over Esher in front of their own fans, before suffering a narrow defeat away at London Welsh last weekend.

The club are keen to bounce back quickly from that frustrating loss at Old Deer Park and continue their good home record over Rotherham.

Albion have won six of the last seven meetings between the teams at Brickfields, including a 21-10 win last season.

However, Rotherham will arrive in confident mood after their victory over former Premiership club Leeds last weekend.

Albion chairman of rugby Graham Dawe said: "We are looking forward to the physical encounter Rotherham will bring.

"We played two very exciting games against each other last year and hopefully we can match the performances we produced in against them last season."

Albion are waiting on fitness tests on a number of players, including forwards Sean-Michael Stephen, Dan Collier and Jon Vickers.

Captain Stephen was forced to miss last weekend's defeat at London Welsh due to a hip injury, while Collier and Vickers picked up knocks on that game.

Albion have added Stephen, Tyson Lewis and former Rotherham hooker Davy McGregor to the squad that was on duty at Old Deer Park.

Tickets for tomorrow's game start at 13 for adults and 1 for children. For more information visit www.plymouthalbion.com
