Bradford City vs. Rotherham United

Coral Windows Stadium (Valley Parade)

26 December 2013


Millers v Bantams Preview

Rotherham United make the short journey to Valley Parade to take on Bradford City for this afternoon's Boxing Day clash.

Both sides were promoted from League Two last season, the Millers automatically and the Bantams via the play-offs and both, so far are doing well in League One.

The Millers are just inside the play-off spots while Bradford are five points and three places below them going into this game.

The last time Rotherham lost away in the League was at Leyton Orient at the end of October which was the same weekend that City last lost at home, two-one to Wolves.

Vital Quotes:

Phil Parkinson - When the fixtures came out, I think this game will have been one that a lot of supporters will have had circled out on their cards. We are certainly looking forward to it with great anticipation

Steve Evans - Bradford are a good side with a good Manager and it`s going to be a tough game.

Bradford City Team News:

Phil Parkinson will have to make at least one change to his team from the ones who lost at Peterborough at the weekend with Rory McArdle being suspended for Rotherham's visit. Andy Gray will have a late fitness test as he's been suffering with a dead leg and James Hanson may come back after a calf problem.

Player to watch: Nahki Wells

Pacey striker who is City's top scorer so far this season and would love to score against the Millers

Rotherham United Team News:

Steve Evans has lost striker Nouha Dicko who was recalled by his parent club Wigan before Christmas but has a host of players back fit and he has said that there will be changes for this game.

Player to watch: Michael O'Connor

Should be an interesting meeting between the Millers Irish midfielder and Bradford City this afternoon
