Head2Head & Carling Cup team news - Stoke (A)

Carling Cup Round Four
Stoke City v Rotherham United
11 November 2008 7.45pm
The first thing I'll advise is to wrap up, especially if it's your first trip to the Potteries - it'll be cold.

Driving rain and wind looks set to meet the Millers and Stoke tonight as Mark Robins' men look to take another bigger scalp in what's been a fairytale of cup runs so far this season.

Wednesday, Wolves and Southampton have already been disposed and now we'll be looking to go one step further by knocking out the Premiership newbies. It was only three and a half years ago that this game was a Championship fixture as the Millers ran out 2-1 winners back in April 2005.

Robins has no new injury concerns and it may be likely that Reuben Reid (right) comes back into the side, although Omar Garcia has been playing well having being handed his chance. Other than that it may be the same starting line up which drew at Aldershot in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Stoke manager Tony Pulis has a couple of injury concerns, missing big striker Mamady Sidibe and winger and one time Rotherham target Liam Lawrence.

Tom Soares and Michael Tonge are cup-tied so cannot figure.

The human sling shot that is Rory Delap is likely to play, so everybody back for those missiles into the box from throw ins!

Finally just a reminder you can pay on the gate tonight for £10 and £5, the 2,000 advanced allocation for the Millers has sold out.

Here's the head to head..
