Millers v Bantams
3 March 2007
Bradford started the season well getting three wins in opening four games, but the promise of promotion declined and after a run of just four wins in twenty in the league manager, Colin Todd, was given the boot. David Wetherall stepped in as caretaker manager and although they lost their first game under him they managed a draw last week against Brentford.
Mark Robins, the new caretaker manager at Millmoor, says he has hopefully picked a team that will battle for the bottom of the table clash tomorrow. He also said that they had worked hard in training and responded positively to him today.
Millers Team News:
It is possible there will be one or two changes in the starting line-up tomorrow, but Robins is keeping his cards close to his chest. Eugen Bopp will possibly be out for the rest of the season after picking up injuries to both ankles, Colin Murdock is still suffering with a thigh injury, Pablo Mills has a calf injury and Gregor Robertson had started training again but had to pull out today. Some good news on the horizon is that Michael Keane is well on the road to recovery and it is hoped he will be ready to play very soon.
