Rotherham United vs. Bradford City

New York Stadium

1 September 2012

3.00pm

Millers v Bantams Preview

Rotherham United go into this afternoon`s game against Bradford City in tenth place and on the back of a one-all draw with near neighbours Chesterfield.

The Bantams are six places above the Millers and come into this game after knocking out Watford in the Capital One Cup and after beating Wimbledon five-one last weekend.

The game looks like being a near sell-out at the New York Stadium with the Bantams selling all their tickets and there just being a handful left for Millers fans as of yesterday.

Vital Quotes:

Steve Evans - Bradford have got a good squad of players who are big and strong. They are a real tough battling side who won`t overplay and I think they will be in the top three at the end of the season.

Phil Parkinson - We're relishing it, we can't wait. It's a local derby and we're going to be bringing a lot of supporters there and if we play with the right sort of passion and effort then they`ll get right behind the team in their numbers.

Rotherham United Team News:

Johnny Mullins should be back in contention for a starting place after coming through a reserve game mid-week. Although both Dale Tonge and Nicky Hunt have returned to training it is thought neither will be in the starting eleven today.

Player to watch: Kayode Odejayi

Tall striker who can supply the crosses for goals as well as get goals himself

Bradford City Team News:

Phil Parkinson will give late fitness tests to Nahki Wells and Andrew Davies but is likely to pick the same starting eleven who started in the win over Wimbledon last weekend.

Player to watch: James Hanson

Striker who got fourteen goals for the Bantams last season and has another three to his name already this season

Ref Watch:

Mark Brown from East Yorkshire

Next Fixtures:

The Millers are at home on Tuesday, 4th September in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy when York City will be the visitors. Kick off is 7.30pm
