Battle on Three Fronts.

Last updated : 07 November 2008 By Bigrich.....
Mark Robins is challenging his players to go out and battle, and produce two more lots of cup magic in the next few days.

After the conquest of Leicester City in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, putting them just three matches from the final at Wembley, the Millers visit fellow League Two side Aldershot in the first round of the FA Cup tomorrow, then travell to Premier League Stoke City for a last 16 tie in the Carling Cup.

On the FA Cup tie with Aldershot he said: "I won it with Manchester United in 1990 and it was an unbelievable experience. We want to do well in it, especially considering our poor record in recent years."

"We know how difficult it is going to be at Aldershot. They're an organised team with an honest bunch of players. All we can do is go down there and put on a performance. We reached a good level against Leicester and now it's about maintaining those standards for as long as we can." Still involved in all competitions.

Regarding the Carling cup clash with Stoke City he went on to say; "I don't really want to talk too much about Stoke until the Aldershot match is out of the way but there is no doubt it is going to be a great night for the club and our supporters and I'm sure they'll sing their hearts out, as they always do away from home."

"We'll go there and enjoy it and relish the chance to test ourselves against top-flight opposition."

The draw's for the next round of the FA Cup is live on ITV1 Sunday after the Havent & Waterlooville v Brentford game.

The draw for the northern area semi-finals of the JP Trophy is tomorrow, on Sky's Soccer AM.
