Millers v Bantams Preview
Coral Window Stadium
12 December 2009
Rotherham travel to the Coral Windows Stadium hoping to bounce back from the dismal, nay, awful performance against Luton in the Cup on Tuesday. The Millers need to win this game to keep in touch with Rochdale and Bournemouth who are above them in the league.
Bradford go into the game in eleventh place and after collecting three points away at Darlington last weekend.
Stuart McCall - It`ll be a tough Yorkshire gritty derby and it`ll be a physical game. There is a lot of determination and belief within the squad to do well
Ronnie Moore - It`ll be tough. If we defend the way we did the other night then we will lose but hopefully with the work we`ve done we`ll keep a clean sheet
Bradford City Team News:
Stuart McCall will be without Peter Thorne and Steven O`Leary while Zesh Rehman is having a late fitness test. Simon Ramsden damaged his fingers against Darlington and will need treatment to make sure he is pain free for the game. McCall will have to decide whether to start Gareth Evans or Michael Boulding up front with James Hanson
Player to watch: JAMES HANSON
Bought from Guiseley of the Unibond Premier League and top scorer so far this season
Rotherham United Team News:
Ronnie Moore has threatened to 'ring the changes` after the performance at Luton which could see Pablo Mills and Jamie Green back in the side. Paul Warne, Dale Tonge and Andy Liddell are still out injured and Nick Fenton will be serving the second of his four match suspension.
Player to watch: NICKY LAW
Nicky spent time on loan at Bradford and will want to play well against them
