With the Millers now being on plus points it’s time to take a break from the league and concentrate on the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy. Having got a bye in the first round the Millers entertain Leeds United at Don Valley tomorrow evening.
Rotherham will be on a high and won’t want to come down to earth in front of Sky TV and it’s expected that Mark Robins will put out a strong side.
Meanwhile, Leeds, no strangers themselves to minus points, have been flying high and are currently fourth in League One. A blip on Saturday saw them lose at Peterboro’ and they won’t want to make it two on the trot at Don Valley.
All in all it should be a good Yorkshire derby tomorrow night.
