Millers v Bantams Preview

Rotherham United
vs.
Bradford City

Don Valley Stadium

6 March 2010

3.00pm

Rotherham United will want to put Tuesday night behind them and get their third win at Don Valley in 2010.
Bradford are the visitors and new boss, Peter Taylor, is getting ready for his fifth game in two weeks.
The Millers are sixteen points better off than the Bantams who are in sixteenth place in the league.

Vital Quotes:

Tony Stewart - It's a local derby and should be a good game with a good crowd.
Andy Warrington - It's going to be a really tough game. Bradford have a new manager and they've made a few new signings so they'll really be up for the game.
Peter Taylor - I saw Rotherham play Torquay recently and one half of the pitch is a bit like ours and the other half is OK - hopefully it will be flatter than it looks.

Rotherham United Team News:

Ronnie Moore will be without skipper Ian Sharps and it is likely that Pablo Mills will step into the roll. Gary Roberts is only rated fifty-fifty again and, although Dale Tonge, Paul Warne and Andy Liddell have trained this week it will be too soon for them to play

Player to watch: Adam Le Fondre

Will want to score to keep on top of League Two's scoring charts

Bradford City Team News:

It is likely that new loan signings, Luke Oliver and Adam Bolder will play some part in the game. Having passed a fitness test, Luke O'Brien could feature but Gavin Grant is a major doubt. Mark McCammon, who chose the Bantams over the Millers, is likely to keep his place despite having to have stitches in his head on Tuesday.

Player to watch: Omar Daley

After coming off the bench for the last two games Omar will want to show the new manager what he can do

Ref Watch:

A Haines from Tyne and Wear

The Millers make the long trek to Dagenham next Saturday
