New York Stadium
1 December 2012
Rotherham United take a break from the league this weekend when they take on the oldest league club Notts County at the New York Stadium in the second round of the FA Cup.
The Magpies are going well in League One and come into this game in sixth place not having lost a game since taking on Sheffield United in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy in October at Meadow Lane. In fact, County hold a really impressive record of not having lost an away game since February!
The Millers have won their last two away games although they lost their last home game three-two after twice being in the lead to then bottom placed Wycombe Wanderers. Steve Evans' side are riding high in fourth place in League Two just a point behind Cheltenham Town in third place.
Steve Evans - It's as tough as it comes as this level and we will have to put in our best performance of the season. They're flying at the moment, have quality players and had a good win last week but we saw of Stevenage in the last round and we know Notts are beatable if we are on our game.
Keith Curle - Because of our away form and because we are a division above people are going to think that we are automatically going to get into the next round but it's a difficult place to go and, I can assure you, it won't be easy. It will be a difficult task and it's important that we go there mentally and physically prepared.
The Millers will have Lee Frecklington back after he played the last ten minutes of the win over Accrington mid-week. Other good news is that loanees Courtney Cameron and Jack O'Connell have been given permission by their parent clubs to play in the game. \The Millers will be without injured players Scott Shearer , Dale Tonge, David Noble, Kari Arnason, Lionel Ainsworth, Craig Morgan and Kieran Agard while Mitch Rose serves the second of a three-game ban.
Having scored five goals in four games Nards will want to carry on with more of the same
The Magpies have Manny Smith and Jordan Stewart sidelined while Dean Leacock, former Miller Jamal Campbell-Ryce and Lee Hughes are all out suspended. Carl Regan is likely to replace Leacock at centre-half and Damion Stewart could be fit for this game.
