Don Valley Stadium
9 November 2010
Rotherham United take on Huddersfield Town this evening at Don Valley in the area quarter final of the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy.
Huddersfield are going great guns in League One and are in second place on twenty-six points.
The Millers are having a bit of a blip at the moment, not having won at Don Valley since the end of September, though are still in sixth place in League Two.
Huddersfield beat Peterborough to get to this stage of the competition going three goals up in under twenty-five minutes and, although the Posh staged a fight back in the second half the Terriers managed to hold on, eventually winning three-two.
The Millers went to the Pirelli Stadium in the last round and won two-one, although were given the run around a bit by Burton Albion.
At the weekend both sides drew 0-0 in their FA Cup games and need replays.
Ronnie Moore - Huddersfield won`t be sending a weak side and they have so much quality and class. Lee Clarke has got a fantastic squad and we are looking forward to a really competitive game
Lee Clarke - I`ve told the players that this is a massive game for this football club. Rotherham are doing well in League Two and it will be a tough, derby game for us.
Jamie Annerson will probably be back in goal, as he has for the last two games in this competition. Mark Bradley and Dale Tonge are both sidelined and Ronnie Moore will probably put some of his fringe players in the game tonight.
Alfie will want to score against higher opposition and if he`s given a chance he will do just that
Joe Garner, on loan from Nottingham Forest and Lee Croft on loan from Derby County are back in contention for this game after their home clubs refused permission for them to play in the FA Cup game at the weekend. Former Millers favourite Alan Lee is suspended for this game and Gary Naysmith, Tom Clarke, Gary Roberts and Lee Novak are all injured
Having had a call up from Scotland this week, the twenty year old striker will want to impress
A Bates from Staffordshire
The Millers are at Don Valley on Saturday, 13th November when Oxford are the visitors. Kick off is 3pm
