Rotherham’s first match of the new campaign finds them visiting Edgar Street to play Hereford United.
Like The Millers, The Bulls have also added a lot of new personnel to their squad this season.
The last time these two teams met in the league was fifteen years ago
Bulls manager, Graham Turner has said that he thinks Rotherham will be amongst the favourites to go up. ‘It wasn’t that long ago they were in the Championship and the reports I’ve had about them have been very complimentary. It’ll be a hard game, there’s no doubt about that.’
Millers boss, Mark Robins, said ‘We are looking forward to the game and we have to treat Hereford with respect. If we don’t respect the way they play we are liable to get kicked in the teeth. I think we are prepared for the game.’
