FA Cup Preview - Millers v Hatters

Rotherham United
vs.
Luton Town

Don Valley Stadium

28 November 2009

3.00pm

Rotherham United will be hoping to come away with a win tomorrow afternoon and get into the next round meaning there could get a meeting with a 'big' teams
But, Luton Town won't be a pushover. After being given a start of minus thirty last season, the Hatters were really down before the season began, and it was no surprise when they found themselves in the Blue Square Premier this season.
Currently seventh like the Millers, the Hatters have won their last four games and also like the Millers, in the last couple of months they have a new manager in Richard Money.
The Millers got to this round by beating Wealdstone of the Ryman League while Luton beat Rochdale in a televised replay game

Vital Quotes:

Ronnie Moore - Any side that can go to Rochdale and win will cause us problems, although I think they rode their luck a bit, they did win two-nil. We know we're in for a tough game.
Richard Money - Rotherham are a similar standard to Rochdale and it will be a tough game. One good thing from having our game against Mansfield postponed on Tuesday night was that I got to see Rotherham live. We will go there with full belief that we can get into the third round draw

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers will be without injured trio Paul Warne, Dale Tonge and Andy Liddell and it might be too soon for Micky Cummins though he has been training again this week. Loanee Adam Rundell is cup-tied so can't play. Captain Ian Sharps should be fit after a knock mid-week

Player to watch: Adam Le Fondre

Luton Town Team News:

Lewis Emanuel is in contention for the first time since the opening day of the season and Alan White is OK after missing the game last weekend with a head injury.
