Millers v Hornets Preview

Rotherham United welcome Watford for their first league trip to the New York Stadium.

While the Millers were doing what they had too to make sure they got a chance to play at Wembley at the end of last season after hoping to get to the Championship play-offs Watford were finishing the season in mid-table after losing their last four games.

This season started well for the Hornets firstly beating Bolton three-nil and then winning their Capital One Cup game at Stevenage but they were brought down to earth on Saturday losing three-nil at Norwich. The Millers narrowly lost their first game of the Championship away at the fancied Derby County and got a extra-time win at home against Fleetwood Town in the Capital One Cup. A lucky goal and a good defensive display saw the Millers beat Wolves at the New York at the weekend.

Vital Quotes:

Steve Evans - It's going to be a tough game. Watford have the best two strikers outside the Premiership and, even on paper, this is the best team that has been to the New York so far.

Giuseppe Sannino - We must stay happy on the pitch and play with confidence. We have to play as a unit, moving all together without leaving space for the other team. I would like a team that always stand on the pitch together. Rotherham, they have played two games, one home, one away, and they have played in two different ways so we must be ready

Rotherham United Team News:

Steve Evans is still without injured Frazer Richardson, Rob Milsom and Mark Bradley but Febian Brandy could make the squad. The Millers will give a late fitness test to Ryan Hall who limped off with a foot injury after scoring on Saturday. If emergency loanee Richie Smallwood signs in time he could play some part in this evenings encounter

Player to watch: Paul Green

Helping to sort out the defence and will certainly 'fight' for the cause

Watford Team News:

Player to watch: Troy Deeney

Skipper and last season's top scorer will want to add to his one goal this season.
