Bradford City vs. Rotherham United

Valley Parade

8 March 2011

7.45pm

Millers v Bantams Preview

Rotherham United travel to Valley Parade tonight to take on twentieth placed Bradford City.

The Millers, who are in fourth place in the table, will want to get back to winning ways after drawing their last two games.

The Bantams have won eight games at home this season, the last being against Stockport County, but they have also lost seven games there. Of course, they have a new manager in Peter Jackson tomorrow who played more than three hundred and fifty times for the Bantams.

Kevin Ellison, on loan to Bradford from Rotherham and Omar Daley, on loan to Rotherham from Bradford, will not be playing tomorrow

Vital Quotes:

Peter Jackson says it will be a very emotional moment of his life as he walks out at Valley Parade this evening to take charge of his home-town club saying, 'Being a former player and captain of this club and what we went through during those times, it can`t be any other way and it will be an immensely proud moment to walk out as Bradford City manager

Ronnie Moore - Jacko` will have them fired up for what`s his first home game so we`ll know what to expect. It would be nice to score first for a change and not have to chase games to get back in them

Bradford City Team News:

Bradford will be without Shane Duff, Simon Ramsden and Tommy Doherty all injured and Jon Worthington is rated doubtful. David Sayers and Lee Bullock are pushing for recalls and Tom Adeyemi, on loan from Norwich, could get into the starting eleven

Player to watch: Gareth Evans

Energetic forward who joined the Bantams from Macclesfield Town in the summer of 2009 and could cause the Millers defenders a few problems.

Rotherham United Team News:

Callum Kennedy will come in for Tom Newey, who got red carded on Saturday. It is quite possible that Ian Thomas-Moore will come in, after injury, to play up front alongside Ryan Taylor. It is thought the game will come too early for skipper Ryan Cresswell.

Player to watch: Johnny Mullins

Has been doing well at centre-half and recently scored his first goal for the Millers
