The leagues form teams go head to head
Manager Alan Knill quoted as saying that ‘key players will be missing but we signed a good few midfielders in the summer because we anticipated losing players to injury and they are usually midfielders’.
Rotherham United Team News:
The Millers go into the game with injurys to key players Lee Williamson,Michael Keane and Colin Murdock. This means that Martin Woods looks like filling one of those positions with Justin Cochrane also coming into the starting line up. Also in the millers line up is Eugen Bopp who will be keen to put on a good show against his former club.
Player to watch: Will Hoskins
There is no doubt that Will has flourished this season under the guidence of Knill and is now scoring the goals (13)that we all knew he was capable of.
Nottingham Forest Team News:
Manager Colin Calderwood has a wealth of talent to choose from so a selection headache is the only problem he has. He has to decide weather he brings together his first choice strike partnership of Agogo and Tyson together after Tysons return from injury.
Player to watch: Kris Commons
A gifted player who will need to be kept in check if the millers are to get anything out of the game. He is a player who can unlock defenses and also score goals.
