The Millers hope to carry on and take their unbeaten run to eight tonight when Bury come to Millmoor, who, themselves, are unbeaten in eight. It is actually twenty years since the Millers triumphed over the Shakers amd the last time the teams met at Millmoor, in the year 2000, Bury won two-one.
Bury are managed by Chris Casper, son of one time Miller’s inside forward, Frank Casper.
Millers manager, Mark Robins, watched Bury’s win recently over Notts County and said, ‘They played well. It is going to be a difficult game tonight but we have to go out there and make it difficult for them.’
Bury’s midfielder, Nicky Adams,said the teams confidence is high, ‘Rotherham is a massive game for us and hopefully we can keep our unbeaten run going.’
