After just one match the Millers and the Owls take a break from League action tonight to concentrate on the Carling Cup. Both teams will go into tonights game brimming with confidence after getting off to good starts on Saturday, both winning their respective games.

With the Millers being the underdogs the pressure will surely be on the Owls in front of their own fans tonight.

Vital Quotes:

Mark Robins - There is a feel good factor round the club at the moment and everyone is looking forward to tonights game and it's a really good tie. Not long ago a game like this looked to be a long way off. They got off to a great start and it will be a tough game for us - but it will also be a challenge.

Jermaine Johnson - This game may not be as high profile as the game on Saturday but we need to keep focused

Sheffield Wednesday Team News:

The Owls have been dealt a blow as Akpo Sodje is out of the game with tendon damage. Peter Gilbert could return to the squad after serving a three match ban and Steve Watson, Etienne Esajas and Jimmy Smith could be in the starting line-up. Francis Jeffers could also make an appearance

Player to watch: Jermaine Johnson

Runs at defenders - can make and score goals

Rotherham United Team News:

It could be that summer signing Mark Burchill could get a run out if he's recovered from a groin injury. Apart from long-term absentee, Stephen Brogan and Marc Newsham, who has a heel problem, the Millers are injury free

Player to watch: Reuben Reid

A strong player who shrugged off the Lincoln defender to score on Saturday

Ref Watch:

Nigel Miller from County Durham

Next Fixtures:

The Millers travel to Morecambe on Saturday, 16 August and the kick-off is 3pm
