JP Trophy Head2Head & Team News

Last updated : 07 October 2008 By Deano
Both sides line up looking to take a step closer to Wembley tomorrow night in round two of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Leeds saw off Hartlepool in round one, but needed a last minute strike to go through 3-2 at Elland Road as former Miller Andy Monkhouse had given them an early scare by putting the visitors ahead.

Rotherham were one of eight sides to receive a first round bye and tomorrow should be a lively encounter in a Yorkshire derby that's televised live on Sky Sports 2.

The ticketing fiasco has forced alot of fans on our messageboatrd problems, with only 1 ticket allocated per database member - Leeds are also due to return a few hundred of their allocated 2,500 tickets.

As for the squads, The West Yorkshire outfit will send a fully fit side to Don Valley with the return of defender Alan Sheehan and goalkeeper David Lucas from injury.

Boss Gary McAllister told "We had a practice match on Tuesday and everybody came through fine. I might look to change things a wee bit but I'm picking from everyone and there's no injured players. The players have had a busy schedule but it'll still be a strong side at Rotherham."

His counterpart Mark Robins also has no fresh injury worries. Danny Harrison could return to the team but it's expected he will be saved for the important league game at Bournemouth on Saturday while Mark Lynch is out of action for around two months.

The boss selects from the weekend squad that comfortably saw off Grimsby barring Richie Barker, who is cup-tied for this competition.

A reminder that it's an all ticket game, and no cash admission is allowed on the turnstiles.

Here's the head to head..
