7.45pm

Rotherham United travel into Nottinghamshire to take on League One side Notts County at Meadow Lane for the FA Cup round two replay.

The Millers already put out League One opposition Stevenage in the first round while County put out Portsmouth.

While the Millers lost on Saturday to top of the table Gillingham the Magpies and Yeovil played out a stalemate at Huish Park.

The Magpies last lost at home against Doncaster Rovers in October while the Millers last lost away from home last month against Dagenham and Redbridge

Vital Quotes:

Keith Curle - We take the cup seriously. The replay against Rotherham is vital because the next round is against Aldershot and we should be able to go there and compete and hopefully then there could be a bumper pay day against a big club. I want to progress and go as far as we can in the competition.

Steve Evans - Notts County have a team of good players and a good manager. They will be well organised and will want to come out and attack. It will be a real test for us because going to Notts County will be a lot tougher than playing at the New York Stadium. We will try and give our fans a performance and result that makes the travelling and expense worth while.

Rotherham United Team News:

County have Lee Hughes and former Millers Jamal Campbell-Ryce back in contention after serving three match suspensions. They will be without Chris Iwelumo who hasn't been given permission to play by his parent club Watford while Alan Judge is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card on Saturday. After being out injured Manny Smith played in a reserve game but it is thought Tuesday will be too early for his comeback. Also out injured are Andre Boucaud, Jordan Stewart, and Tom Williams .

Player to watch: Yoanne Arquin

Strong French striker who scored the opening goal in the first game and will want to do the same again

Notts County Team News:

Ian Sharps left the pitch on Saturday with a broken nose but has been passed fit. Mitch Rose could be in the squad after serving a three match ban but definitely out is Liam Ridehalgh who's parent club Huddersfield refused permission for him to play. After playing ninety minutes on Saturday Kari Arnason is set to continue in midfield. Mark Bradley has joined the walking wounded at the NYS with a thigh strain

Player to watch: Kari Arnason
