Stoke City vs. Rotherham United

Brittania Stadium

11th November 2008

7.45pm

Millers v Stoke Preview

Rotherham United travel to the Brittania Stadium tomorrow for the Fourth round of the Carling Cup. Having already beaten the likes of Southampton, Leeds, Sheffield Wednesday and Wolves in various Cup competitions this season, they will be hoping to add Stoke to the list.
Stoke have won their last three games at home, one being against Arsenal, and are currently twelfth in the Premier League.

Vital Quotes:

Mark Robins - All the players want to play against Stoke.
Tony Pullis - It's a massive game for us and it gives us the chance to progress further but we know it's not going to be easy

Stoke City Team News:

Stoke play Manchester United next weekend so it's quite possible that Tony Pullis will ring the changes a bit. Mamady Sidibe is a major doubt after getting an ankle injury on Saturday and Liam Lawrence is also out. Michael Tonge and Tom Soares are cup-tied. Pullis says he has plenty of experience waiting to come in.

Player to watch: Rory Delap

Watch out for the long-throw!

Rotherham United Team News:

Mark Robins has nearly a full squad to pick from and although he says he is thinking about changes, for my money, I'd say it will be the same side as started on Saturday at Aldershot. Richie Barker is cup-tied

Player to watch: Andy Warrington

Saved us on Saturday

Ref Watch:

Mark Halsey from Lancashire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers have another long journey to Gillingham next Saturday with a 3.00pm kick off
