RUFC - Moore 'will be typical FA Cup game'

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore, says there is no easy games at the moment no matter who you are playing.

The Millers travel to Bootham Crescent this evening for the replay of the FA Cup game against York City and Moore told MillersPlayer that he thinks they have made it hard for themselves by not beating them at Don Valley. 'But,` he said, 'we are still in there and if we play anything like we can play then we`ll be a match for York.

'I think they will be more or less the same side who played us last week without Lawless (who has moved on to Luton Town) so it`s really who comes in for him. Rankine was a handful for our back two and I`m sure if we can dominate him then it will go a long way to us dominating the game. We`ve got to match them and their commitment and I know they play 4-1-4-1 but it`s all about what we do but it will be tough and tight and a typical FA Cup game.

'It`s a big, big competition and they will be looking if they get through they get Darlington away and if they beat them then all of a sudden everyone`s dreaming about the Man U`s and the Man City`s. And we`re no different, we want the money for getting through this round and the next round and then hopefully get a plum tie and get out of it then hopefully get on with what we want to do and that`s getting promotion.`

Is that what we want - to get through to the third round and then bow out? Or do we want to get through to the third round and then through to the fourth?

I'm old enough to remember the last time we went on a decent FA cup run to the dizzy heights of the 5th round. I don't want anything to distract us from promotion but it sure would be nice to go on a good cup run and come out with 3,4 or even 5 pay days and add a bit of glamour and spice to the season

baldtobe - it looked like very old spice tonight! SFC - we had an open goal at our mercy twice before York scored tonight and still couldn't hit the target
