Millers take on Saints
Don Valley Stadium
22 September 2008
The Third round of the Carling Cup comes to Don Valley tomorrow night when Rotherham United take on Championship side Southampton. The Millers are the only League Two team still in the competition and will be trying to overcome the Saints to get into the last sixteen for the first time in six years.
The last time Southampton won was in the last round of this competition against Birmingham and they are third from the bottom of the Championship.
The Millers are third from the bottom of League Two but have only lost once this season so far and never at Don Valley.
Jan Poortvliet - It's good to be in the cup and we will do everything we can to go through. Rotherham look strong and have a strong striker
Rotherham Team News:
Mark Robins could possibly be without Mark Lynch who went off on Saturday with a shoulder injury.

Southampton Team News:
