Millers v Cobblers Preview
New York Stadium
2 February 2013
Rotherham United welcome Northampton Town to the New York Stadium this afternoon in which is a fourth v ninth encounter.
The Millers go into this game with losses in their last two home games while the Cobblers have won four of their last six games.
Steve Evans - Northampton are the form team in League Two, they will be the biggest team that supporters see this season in terms of bulk and size. They are direct and get the ball into the box at every opportunity. It's about what we do though. If we don't perform we'll have no chance of winning.
Aidy Boothroyd - I'm sure Rotherham will come flying out of the traps. They have had one or two results at home that haven't gone their way and hopefully we can be another.
Rotherham United Team News:
Steve Evans is set to give a debut to striker Jordan Slew who signed on Thursday from Blackburn Rovers. After making a number of changes in the last two games he could make more today which could include a start for fit again David Noble. There are minor doubts for Adam Morgan and Lee Frecklington
