Millers v Foxes Preview

Rotherham
vs.
Leicester

Don Valley Stadium

4 November 2008

7.45pm

Rotherham United entertain League One side Leicester City in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy this evening at Don Valley.
With the Millers last three home games just bringing in one point, Mark Robins will be expecting his men (and boys) to go out and give it their all tonight.
The Foxes have also been suffering a loss of form in recent times although two goals on Saturday in the last few minutes saw them get all three points against Bristol Rovers.

Vital Quotes:

Mark Robins - I really enjoyed my time at Leicester. It's a good club with good fans and we are expecting a hard match
Nigel Pearson - Every game is a big game for us and we aim to win every one and this will be no different just because it's a cup tie. It's an opportunity to progress in a tournament and I'm sure Rotherham will be feeling the same

Rotherham Team News:

Reuben Reid looks like missing tonights game with, perhaps, Alex Rhodes taking his place. Nick Fenton has declared himself fit. After a good game on Saturday, Omar Garcia is set to keep his place.

Player to watch: Ian Sharps

Strong, focussed defender

Leicester Team News:

Pearson is set to field a strong side tonight - probably the same side that beat Bristol Rovers on Saturday

Player to watch: Matt Fryatt

Matt joined the Foxes in January 2006 and is top scorer so far this season with twelve goals.

Ref Watch:

Colin H Webster from Tyne & Wear

Next Fixtures:

The Millers are in Cup action again on Saturday, 8 November when they visit Aldershot. Kick-off 3pm
