The final game of the 2006/07 season sees already relegated Rotherham take on automatic promotion hopefuls Bristol City at Ashton Gate.
he Millers have had a difficult season, starting on minus ten, clawing their way back only to fall back into the bottom four again; having a change of manager and losing their top scorer in the January sales. But the players are playing for their contracts tomorrow so they have to put on a good performance.
City are playing for the chance of going into The Championship through automatic promotion and they will be playing for the three points.
Ashton Gate will be full to the rafters, the home side having sold all their tickets and even taking back two hundred of the six hundred originally given to The Millers.
The game earlier in the season at Millmoor ended in a one all draw with Delroy Facey scoring for the Millers.
City manager, Gary Johnson, said, 'If someone gets a winner tomorrow then they will be remembered as a hero with the goal being shown for years to come.'
Millers manager, Mark Robins, said, 'City are a good club with a great fanbase and if they get into The Championship they will have deserved it. But, we won't be rolling over for anybody.'
The home team captain, Louis Carey will face a late fitness test tomorrow on a calf injury. Winger Scott Murray is out with a broken foot.
The Millers have doubts over both first team goalkeepers, Gary Montgomery and Neil Cutler, though it is thought Montgomery may be fit. Manager, Mark Robins, hinted at other possible changes to the team.
