New York Stadium
16 February 2013
Rotherham United welcome Chesterfield to the New York Stadium in what will be a near sell-out crowd.
The win over Torquay on Tuesday night saw the Millers move back into the play-off places with the Spireites just four places and six points behind them.
Unable to keep the NYS as a fortress, the Millers have only won one game there since December while Chesterfield have won just five away games all season.
Steve Evans - Paul Cook has done a great job and I look forward to seeing him on Saturday because he`s a good guy. They are a side who are strong all round. They are very strong at the back and they`ve got great width as well. They`ve sold their allocations of tickets so they`ll be noisy but so will ten thousand Millers. I think we have a responsibility to show we can behave on and off the pitch on Saturday. The battle will be on the pitch but off the pitch we want our fans to be creating an atmosphere that they are becoming famous for. Games like these mean so much to the supporters. The expectation levels at both clubs are very high. What we all hope for is a great sporting occasion.
Paul Cook - Games like today are what football is all about and we are going to Rotherham to win. I don't know what Rotherham have spent, and I'm not interested, it's not my business. I'm just interested in taking this club forward.
Steve Evans is hoping that Craig Morgan will at least make the bench after his long term injury. He will also have David Noble back in contention after he served a one match ban on Tuesday. Both Ben Pringle and Jordan Slew started on the bench on Tuesday with Slew playing the fifteen minutes. Michael O`Connor isn't available due to suspension and Andy Warrington will continue in goal with Scott Shearer still injured.
Will want to do well against his former loan club
Paul Cook will be without Tendayi Darikwa who has had a hernia operation. Marc Richards was brought off as a precaution against Wimbledon but should be at least on the bench. Rumour has it that Jack Lester will make a rare start for the Spireites this afternoon.
Hopefully he will have left his scoring boots at home!
Paul Tierney from Lancashire.
The Millers travel down to Bristol to take on Rovers in the re-arranged game on Tuesday night where it will be a 7.45pm kick-off
