Millers travel to Stanley

Accrington Stanley
vs.
Rotherham United

The Millers and Stanley should be up for this game after both having bad results in the FA Cup last weekend, Stanley lost to Huddersfield and the Millers drawing at Forest Green.
New Years day 1951 was the last time the Millers went to the old Peel Park Ground, Accrington and a repeat of the 2-1 win that day would be just what the fans ordered.
Stanley manager, John Coleman, has steered the team to eight trophies in six years and like the Millers his team are made up of young players.
The last time the two teams met was in the LDV Trophy at Millmoor, with the Millers finally winning the game on penalties.
So, all that's left to say really is, how many times do you think you will hear a Rotherham fan say 'Hackrinton Stanlee, who are they?' between now and tomorrow night?

Vital Quotes:

Millers manager, Mark Robins, went to watch Accrington last Saturday and has concerns about the pitch. 'It's not good,' Robins said, 'It's undulating but it will suit Accrington and they know how to play on it.'
