Millers v Robins Preview
New York Stadium
29 March 2014
Rotherham United welcome Bristol City for their first visit to the New York Stadium this afternoon.
The Robins are sitting in mid-table but come to the NYS on the back of a great home win against Port Vale while the Millers moved into fourth place after beating second placed Brentford at home on Tuesday night.
City are coming strong and have won two away games already this month (at Shrewsbury and Peterborough) and their last away loss came at Brentford at the end of January. The Millers are on an unbeaten fourteen game run with the last loss being at home to Coventry on New Years Day.
Steve Evans - Steve Cotterill is a talented guy and I'm not surprised how well he`s doing and I think Bristol City will be one of the forces next season. He`s brought some quality players into that dressing room and they`ve got an industrious midfield. They come into this game in great form and we know how tough it`s going to be.He`s brought some quality players into that dressing room and they've got an industrious midfield.

Steve Cotterill - Going to Rotherham doesn't bother me because we've been improving and we know if we play how we can then we'll cause problems. Our win on Tuesday night has taken us to joint-top of the form table with Rotherham which will make this game an interesting one and one that we will look forward to.
Rotherham United Team News:
The Millers go into this game with all players but Mark Bradley, who is out for the rest of the season, fit and raring to go. Wes Thomas is fit although he didn't make the bench on Tuesday night and with it being doubtful that Steve Evans will change a winning side, could well miss out again.
Player to watch: Kieran Agard
On fire striker who got two goals in mid-week to take his tally to twenty so far this season
Bristol City Team News:
The Robins will give late fitness tests to Simon Moore, who has had a thigh problem, and Joe Bryan who is recovering from a knee injury. Adam El-Abd is back in contention after serving a suspension. Although Steve Cotterill says he might 'tweak' things why would you change a winning side if you didn't have to?
Player to watch: Sam Baldock
Striker who is equally at home on the wing and will be looking to add to his twenty-two goals this season
