SAM Finley will come up against former team mate Dan Barlaser when Accrington Stanley take on Rotherham United on Saturday afternoon.

Barlaser spent last season on loan at Stanley from Premier League side Newcastle United and despite the clubs best efforts to resign the midfielder, he opted to join the Millers for the campaign.

Finley and Barlaser played together a number of times last season, but the pair will be foes on Saturday at the Wham Stadium.

The Newcastle United loanee featured 33 times for the Reds during his spell at the club and he has played 22 times so far this term for the League One leaders.

"I have been speaking to Dan Barlaser this week, he didn't have a run of games when we played them away but now he has been playing every week and has been doing well," said Finley.

"I played 20-odd games alongside him last season, I know how he likes to play so it will be interesting, if I am picked, to play up against him.

"The Wham Stadium is always a tough place to come to if you're an away side. I don't think teams enjoy the surroundings and when our fans are loud, it's a special place to play football.

"It will be a good test for Rotherham. There wasn't much in the game at their place and we were unlucky not to score.

"It bodes for a good game and it will be a tough test against them, but one we're looking forward to."

The midfielder is hoping he can win back his place in the side for the visit of the leaders Rotherham who will have ex-Reds Matt Crooks, Michael Ihiekwe, Dan Barlaser and Michael Smith amongst their squad.

Stanley have announced that they have frozen season ticket prices for next campaign for all current season ticket holders.

The club secured more than 1,600 season ticket holders for the current year and are looking to boost their ever-growing fan base even more.
