Wembley Preview - Millers v The O's

Rotherham United's last game of the season will be against Leyton Orient at Wembley tomorrow which will see one of them promoted to the Championship to join Wolverhampton Wanderers and Brentford.

Both the Millers and the O's have been in and around the play-off positions for most of the season with Orient actually looking like they were going to get automatic promotion heading the league for quite a while before a bit of a blip and some good play from Wolves and the Bees saw them overtake Orient.

Getting automatic promotion on the last day of the previous season no-one can deny that the Millers have done brilliantly to get to the play-off finals and had a sixteen game unbeaten run from January to April. Both finishing on eighty-six points Orient won thirty games this season, one more than the Millers but also lost one more game than Rotherham.

So, to say Sunday is going to be pretty even is a bit of an understatement.

Vital Quotes:

Russell Slade - We feel very proud of what we have achieved this season, eighty-six points is a fantastic effort and five out of seven seasons that would have got you automatic promotion.We deserve to be there on Sunday but that will not count for anything because Rotherham will feel very much the same. And both teams will be fighting for that Championship slot.It would be a very proud day for me, Barry [Hearn] and the players if we can achieve promotion and that is what we are gearing up for.

Steve Evans - Russell Slade is a top class manager with top class players and have been building the team for five or six years. I don't think it would be a shock to anyone if either of the teams win this game as we are so much alike. After forty-six league games we are on identical points and the goal difference over your two meetings is identical then it will be very close. But, I do think Leyton Orient have a point to prove after leading the table for so many months.

Leyton Orient Team News:

Russell Slade has had two or three players with niggles but nothing that should keep them from a Wembley appearance.

Player to watch: MosesAdeshina Ayoola Junior Odubajo

Midfielder who scored against the Millers at the New York earlier in the season and could cause some problems on Sunday. (And, if he scored, would he be the player with the longest name to ever score at Wembley?)

Rotherham United Team News:

Steve Evans says that he might make one or two changes from the side that beat Preston North End at the New York Stadium to get to Wembley. Richard Brindley, who is back from injury, could get a starting place.

Player to watch: Alex Revell

Scored against his former club in the two-one win in February and would love to see a header nestle in the back of the net at Wembley - and make no bones about it, if he scores he WILL celebrate!
