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.
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.’

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.
