Match Preview

Warrington in for Millers Andy Warrington will come into the Rotherham goal for their Bank Holiday clash with Bradford. The veteran stopper will replace Conrad Logan, who has returned to Leicester following the completion of his six-month loan stay, and make his first appearance since the end of October. Defender Jon Harley and winger Sam Wood will make the last appearance of their respective loan stays, though manager Andy Scott is keen to extend both of their deals at Don Valley. The quick turnaround from Friday's defeat at Cheltenham gives the injured contingent of the Millers squad no chance to recover so Marcus Marshall, Ryan Cresswell (both ankle) and Mark Bradley (shoulder) will miss out. The Millers have an extra day's recovery over Bradford, who played Shrewsbury on Saturday, but Scott is still expecting a difficult test. "Bradford have had a good run of late and have changed their style a little bit," he said. "They have had a bit of success so it might be a bit of a different game for us. But we know they are a threat and dangerous from set plays." Bradford midfielder David Syers will miss the derby clash through suspension. Syers returned to the starting line-up in Saturday's 3-1 home win over Shrewsbury for the first time since the Carling Cup defeat at Leeds in August following a knee injury, but was sent off and will now sit out a one-game ban. Fellow midfielder Ricky Ravenhill, on loan from Notts County, returns to contention after serving a one-match suspension and Lee Bullock stepped off the substitutes' bench for the last 17 minutes on Saturday to make his first appearance since the opening day of the season. Midfielder Bullock, who was sidelined with a serious thigh injury, provides manager Phil Parkinson with an extra option as skipper Michael Flynn and Kyel Reid are expected to miss out again. Flynn recently had a spell in hospital due to a virus and Reid is struggling with a hamstring injury. City's third straight win on Saturday lifted them up to 18th place in the table.

Match Report

Grabban inspires Millers Two-goal Lewis Grabban spearheaded an amazing second-half revival to help Rotherham claim a 3-0 win over Bradford. A hugely disappointing first half only came to life in the final minute when the home fans finally had something to cheer. A flowing move involving Alex Revell, Grabban and Danny Schofield ended with Schofield shooting just wide Earlier, James Hanson tested Rotherham's on-loan debutant goalkeeper Rhys Taylor with a shot from the edge of the area and then Hanson got his head to Craig Fagan's corner but couldn't direct his header on target. It was not until the 57th minute that Rotherham managed a shot on target when Schofield's shot was well saved by Jon McLoughlin. And six minutes later Grabban grabbed the lead for the hosts. Substitute Jon Harley's high cross was not held by McLoughlin and with the keeper grounded Grabban slammed the ball home. Grabban added a second from the penalty spot in the 67th minute after McLoughlin charged off his line and bowled over Sam Wood, who was clean through on goal. And worse was to follow for McLoughlin seven minutes later as substitute Brett Williams spotted the keeper off his line and unleashed a 40-yard shot, which the back pedalling shot stopper caught but then carried over his line.
