Rotherham United Vs Bradford City, Tue 28 Sep 2010

Published Add your comment

Manager Ronnie Moore could name an unchanged team as his Rotherham side look to continue their promising start to the campaign in the Yorkshire derby with Bradford.

The Millers moved upto in the automatic promotion spots after Saturday`s 1-0 win over rivals Chesterfield and Moore could keep the faith with the same starting XI.

On-loan striker Tom Elliott was again an absentee from the squad at the weekend as he has been refusing to play with a slight hamstring injury and his involvement is again doubtful, with Moore preferring Tom Pope as Adam Le Fondre`s partner in attack.

Ryan Taylor is still a while away from match fitness following a metatarsal injury, but has been taking part in full training for the last couple of weeks, meaning Dale Tonge is the only absentee for Rotherham.

Bradford defender Lewis Hunt is not expected to shake off a knee injury in time.

Hunt was stretchered off early on in the Bantams' weekend defeat at Northampton and although he went back on, the summer signing from Wycombe was unable to continue for long and was replaced by club skipper Zesh Rehman.

Rehman is a natural replacement, while manager Peter Taylor could make further changes after seeing his side lose for the fifth time in eight league matches.

Latest signing Lee Hendrie is hoping to make his full debut and Tom Adeyemi, on loan from Norwich, is fit again after a bruised toe, but Taylor is still without long-term casualties Simon Ramsden (calf), James Hanson (hamstring) and Michael Flynn (hernia).M
