West Bromwich Albion vs. Rotherham United

The Hawthorns

26 August 2009

7.45pm

Carling Cup Preview Millers v Baggies

Rotherham United go to The Hawthorns tonight hoping to claim another Championship scalp after knocking out Derby in the last round and the likes of Wolves, Sheffield Wednesday and Southampton last season.
After coming down from the Premiership, West Brom's Championship campaign has started off well with four wins and a draw plus the win against Bury in the first round of the cup. Although, they might be wise to remember that they got knocked out by Hartlepool at this stage last season!

Vital Quotes:

Roberto Di Matteo - We have injuries so will be forced to make changes but it will be a good opportunity for other players to show their quality

Mark Robins - West Brom have hit the ground running this season and whatever team Roberto Di Matteo puts out will be a good one

West Bromwich Albion Team News:

Roman Bednar could play some part in tonights game after completing a ban for alleged possession of controlled substances and Graham Dorrens is available after suspension. Robert Koren and Chris Brunt are injured as are Gianni Zuiveloon, Filipe Teixeira, James Morrison, Neil Clement and Ishmael Miller

Player to watch: Luke Moore

the twenty-three year old has five U21 caps for England and joined West Brom from Aston Villa in May after being on loan at the Hawthorns

Of course, I expect most of us to have our eyes on another Baggies striker this evening!

Rotherham United Team News:

Mark Robins is unlikely to risk Ian Sharps this evening as he wants to get him fully fit. Drewe Broughton is still out with a broken toe. Adam Le Fondre (thigh strain) and Paul Warne are doubts

Player to watch: Adam Le Fondre

(if he plays) gets himself into good positions and will always have a go at goal

Ref Watch:

Grant Hegley from Hertfordshire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers are away at Macclesfield on Saturday, 29th August and the kick-off is 3.00pm
