Millers v Blades JPT Preview

Rotherham United take on Sheffield United this evening in the second round of the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy. The Millers had a bye in the first round while the Blades overcame Burton Albion to get to this round.

This will be the first time the teams have met in any competition since the 2004/5 season, although there have been pre-season games.

The Millers and the Blades both came out of the blocks running at the start of the season with neither side losing a league game in August. But, like the Millers, the Blades have lost three of their last six games so this competition might come as a welcome change from the League for both sides.

Vital Quotes:

Andy Scott - We want to get back to winning ways so don`t want to lose this game. Sheffield United`s game on Saturday has been called off so I would imagine that they will put a pretty strong side out.

Danny Wilson - It`s a derby game and there will be a lot of passion. We will take it very seriously because they are our local neighbours. Other clubs might see this competition as a 'pain in the backside` but my attitude is 'if it`s worth entering, it is worth winning.

Stephen Quinn - The fans have always been brilliant with me and it will be an emotional one for me.
Lee Williamson - It`s the first time I`ve played against Rotherham since I left and I`d like to think I`ll get a good reception

Rotherham United Team News:

Andy Scott will give Conrad Logan a rest for this evening`s game and Andy Warrington will return between the sticks. With a few players suffering from a knocks and niggles it will be a good opportunity to play some of the fringe players and Mark Bradley could well start. It`s also probable that, if Michael Raynes is fit, then Johnny Mullins will be rested. Former Blade Ryan Cresswell is out injured so won`t play and Troy Brown is away on international duty with Wales

Player to watch: Alex Revell

Taken over the captains armband and will want to get on the score sheet again

Sheffield United Team News:

Former Millers Lee Williamson and Stephen Quinn are expected to play some part in tonight`s game and Nick Montgomery is expected to come in after injury.

Player to watch: Stephen Quinn

Will show some trickery against his former loan side I`m sure

Ref Watch:

Gary Sutton from Lincolnshire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers are at Don Valley on Saturday, 8th October when Burton Albion are the visitors. Kick-Off is 3.00pm
