JP Trophy, Northern Final Leg (1)
Scunthorpe United v Rotherham United
20 January 2009 7.30pm
So, here we sit two games from a return to Wembley, 13 years (gosh where's the time gone?) after winning the thing!

Standing in our way are our Northern neighbours over in sunny Scunny, lets hope by 10pm tonight we'll be saying 'Adkins, your boys took one hell of a beating'.

In all seriousness this is a crunch game for both sides, although Iron fans over on the 'Bru board and visitors to our MAD house seem to want to play it down somewhat - I see this as key to the shape of how both teams seasons may pan out.

The Millers want to finish as high as possible in League Two, and with the men from Glanford Park pushing for a Championship return in League One but with dipping form of late, a decnt performance must surely be welcomed by both managers.

With the seocnd leg another month away (too long if you ask me), taking a lead back to Don Valley would be a cracking result for Mark Robins' men.

Both Robins and Nigel Adkins have injury concerns ahead of the clash, with Iron midfield duo Grant McCann and Sam Togwell both major doubts. Matt Sparrow is likely to deputise.

Goalkeeper Andy Warrington returns to the Millers line up as David Stockdale returns fo Fulham after his loan spell.

New signing Jason Taylor is very doubtful after coming off injured in the weekend win over Bournemouth. Danny Harrison will come in to replace him.

Elsewhere the game comes too early for Pablo Mills, but Mark Lynch is set to be amongst the substitutes once again as Richie Barker misses out. For details of the match officials, click HERE
