LUFC - Leeds v Rotherham preview

Leeds make their first ever trip to The Don Valley Stadium on Wednesday night to play Rotherham United in front of the Sky TV cameras for a Johnstones Paint Trophy clash.

Form
Rotherham have just managed to wipe out their seventeen point deduction and if not for this would currently lie in fourth place in the Division. Last time out they beat Grimsby Town 4-1 at home.
So far in the competition they have yet to play having received a bye in the first round.

Leeds lost their first game in ten on Saturday losing 2-0 against Peterborough United. So far in this competition Leeds beat Bradford City 2-1 at Elland Road.


Team news
Rotherham
The Millers may stick with the side that beat Grimsby on Saturday.
Richie Barker is ineligible after playing in the first round for Hartlepool United.

Leeds
In the last round Leeds made nine changes from the side that played the previous Saturday. David Lucas had to pull out of Saturday`s game with a finger injury and it will be a surprise if he`s risked for this game.
Also fit again is defender Alan Sheehan who has missed the last four games through suspension and injury.

History
The two clubs have met on fourteen previous occasions at Rotherham with the home side having the better record. The Millers have won six to Leeds five and three draws.
