Millers take on County

Millers
vs.
Notts County

Millmoor

22 September

3pm

The Football Leagues oldest club comes to Millmoor tomorrow on the day that Millmoor is celebrating its centenary year. County are just two points and five places behind the Millers in League Two.

A minutes applause will be held at Millmoor before kick off tomorrow for Ian Porterfield, who sadly died last week. Ian began his managerial career at Millmoor in the 1978/79 season and he guided the team to be Champions of Divison Three. Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.

Vital Quotes:

Millers Manager, Mark Robins, says 'County are a big physical side and we will have to match them. We have to make sure when we get the ball we use it. We have to build on our great win last weekend.'

Millers Team News:

The Millers could be without strikers Chris O'Grady, with a back injury and Derek Holmes, with an injury to his hip. Ian Sharps is also out with a hamstring problem.

Player to watch: Stephen Brogan

Must be one of the first players the manager puts on the team sheet now. Versatile young player who suddenly makes darting runs to the front

Notts County Team News:

Notts County are set to be without Jay Smith, who picked up a groin strain last weekend, but Andy Parkinson could be back in contention after missing last weekend`s game with a medical ligament injury.

Player to watch: Jason Lee

Once ridiculed for having a silly hairstyle on Skinner and Baddiel`s Fantasy Football Show, this tall striker has certainly travelled around. Having been at eleven clubs (not including loans) - in his first season at Meadow Lane he scored sixteen goals and was the Players` Player of the year

Ref Watch:

The referee is Mr Karl G Evans from Greater Manchester

Next Fixtures:

The Millers next game is away at Barnet on Saturday 29th September kick off 3 pm

I like the idea of applauding, rather than a minutes silence.
