Millers take on Bantams
22 March 2008
With the Millers dropping to eleventh in the league, due to a ten point deduction, Bradford might come to Millmoor tomorrow thinking they can do an easy double over their South Yorkshire rivals. But, the home team will want to prove they can still get into the play-offs and will, hopefully, be going for the jugular and carry on from last weeks win against Chesterfield and get all three points.
Mark Robins - with things happening off the pitch we have to concentrate on things on the pitch. We learnt a lot from our game at Bradford last month and things have moved on from then and we had a good win last week against Chesterfield.
Stuart McCall - It was always going to be a tough game at Millmoor but with them losing ten points the Millers could make it even toughter tomorrow. We've trained hard and talked about whats gone wrong but it depends on what you do on Saturday afternoon that counts
Rotherham United Team News:
The Millers will be without Ian Sharps who has to undergo a hernia operation next week and will then be out for a further five weeks. It will most likely be the same side as last weekend
Player to watch: Pablo Mills
He made a return last weekend to his preferred position at centre half and is full of confidence
