Forest Green Rovers vs. Rotherham United

The New Lawn

11 November

Millers go to Forest Green

With both the home team and the visitors being on unbeaten runs this cup tie will probably be a close run thing. Millers manager, Mark Robins, has already warned his players of the potential 'banana skin' this game could be, with the Millers going out in this round in the last five seasons. Both Mark Robins and goalkeeper, Andy Warrington have played against Forest Green before, although it was at the old ground.

Jim Harvey, Rovers manager, has got his team into sixth position in the Blue Square Premier league and he came to watch the Millers in the two-one win over Bury on Tuesday night. They also have ex England wicket 'keeper, Jack Russell on their staff as goalkeeping coach.

Vital Quotes:

Millers manager, Mark Robins, said, 'I know Forest Green will fancy their chances and be up for this game tomorrow but we've got to be as well. We've got to go down there and impose ourselves.'

Forest Green Rovers Team News:

Rovers will have top scorer in the Blue Square Premier, Stuart Fleetwood starting up front in their probable 4-4-1-1 system. And Jim Harvey will probably start with Adriano Rigoglioo and Danny Carey-Bertram on the bench.

Player to watch: Stuart Fleetwood

Seems to be scoring for fun at the moment

Rotherham United Team News:

The only player definitely out is broken foot victim Derek Holmes. New loan signing Ian Ross has been given permission to play by Sheffield United while Andy Todd will also be available as will Peter Holmes who has shaken off the flu

Player to watch: Chris O'Grady

Has scored the winner in the last two games
