FA Cup Replay News

Rotherham United
vs.
Forest Green Rovers

Millmoor

20 November

7.45 pm

A replay is probably what neither manager wanted but Mark Robins will consider his team were lucky to get here after a woeful first half performance in the first game on a cold Sunday at The New Lawn.

But, both teams should be brimming with confidence tonight, The Millers having won at Accrington at the weekend and Rovers won at home to fellow Blue Square Premier League team, Histon.

Please Note - Tonights game could go to extra time and penalties

Vital Quotes:

Millers manager, Mark Robins, said, 'The way Jim Harvey has got his team playing football is a credit to him - he's a top man. We are prepared for a tough game tonight but we will be ready.'

Rovers manager, Jim Harvey said, 'I was delighted with our performance in the first game and it was a big compliment to us that Mark Robins changed their formation. We are looking forward to the replay with confidence.'

Rotherham United Team News:

No fresh injuries for the Millers and Andy Todd has shaken off a virus he had. It is likely that Mark Robins will start with the team that played most of the second half on Saturday at Accrington although there is a doubt over Pablo Mills whose partner is expecting a baby.

Player to watch: MARK HUDSON

Mark has slotted into the team since coming back from an injury before the season began. Seems to have got his goal scoring boots on as well.

Though I must give a special mention to PAUL HURST - if he gets picked for tonight's game (and on Saturday's performance I think he should do) then he will equal the all time Millers Appearance Record.

Forest Green Rovers Team News:

Jim Harvey has no fresh injury worries although Michael Brough is still out as is winger Lee Dodgson.

Player to watch: STUART FLEETWOOD

Stuart is the top scorer in senior football in England at the moment and bagged another two on Saturday. In fact, in the last seven games he scored he has gone on to get two. The Millers have to keep him quiet tonight.
