Millers v Magpies Preview

Notts County
vs.
Rotherham United

Meadow Lane

18 December 2012

7.45pm

Rotherham United and Notts County will be hoping that they actually get to play a game this evening after last weeks game was called off due to a frozen pitch.

The Millers go into this game after winning away at Wimbledon on Saturday while County lost at Meadow Lane to Brentford. The Millers are fourth in League Two while the Magpies are eighth in League One going into this game.

Vital Quotes:

Keith Curle - We are looking forward to the game. It's always an opportunity for the club to progress in the competition. Rotherham have got strengths and weaknesses and we need to exploit those and we've got to make sure that our preparation and planning are detailed because we don't want to be the upset of the competition.

Steve Evans - I think we'll give it a go but you have to be careful because it's a one off now. They've got quality all over and they're very good defensively so it'll be a very difficult game for us.

Notts County Team News:

Dean Leacock is a doubt but Alan Judge and Yohann Arquin are expected to return from suspension and injury respectively. Lee Hughes has handed in a sick note and, although Keith Curle isn't sure what is wrong with the striker, it is expected he'll be out until January.

Player to watch: Jamal Campbell-Ryce

Former Miller who was suspended for the original game at the New York Stadium but will be out to add to his four goals so far for the season

Rotherham United Team News:

The Millers will be without skipper Ian Sharps who collected his fifth booking in the one-nil win on Saturday. Mark Bradley will probably be back in the starting eleven with Johnny Mullins taking over Sharps' place to make room for him. Also unavailable is Liam Ridehalgh whose parent club, Huddersfield, don't want him cup tied. After scoring on Saturday it would be foolish to think that Kieran Agard won't play some part in the game.

Player to watch: Lee Frecklington

Strong and reliable and makes some good runs with some equally good crosses. Due a goal I think
