Rotherham United take on Bradford City in the Checkatrade Trophy this evening at Valley Parade.

Both teams were involved in the FA Cup at the weekend with the Bantams beating Chesterfield at home while Rotherham lost away at Crewe. While the Millers are just out of the play-off places in League One City are currently in third place.

Bradford top the Checkatrade Trophy Northern Group F winning two games out of two with the Millers currently bottom with one point which they gained from a draw with Manchester City U21's.

Vital Quotes:

Stuart McCall - They (Rotherham) might be a little stronger in their selection than us but I am looking forward to the game. And even though we are already through it would be nice to finish on top of the group.

Bradford City Team News:

Omari Patrick, Dominic Poleon and Shay McCartan will all play some part this evening while Goalkeeper Rouven Sattelmaier is also set to play after recovering from injury and Tyrell Robinson should start at left-back.

Player to watch: Omari Patrick

Winger who has scored three times for the Bantams this season

Rotherham United Team News:

'Bench-warmers' Anthony Forde, Jonson Clarke-Harris and Jerry Yates could start for the Millers this evening. If skipper Lee Frecklington is fit he will possibly get some minutes under his belt while the Millers have recalled young midfielder Mason Warren from a loan spell so could also play.

Player to watch: Anthony Forde

Will want to give his Manager something to think about this evening
