Manager’s Comments

Millers manager Paul Warne is looking forward to this one following their win at home to Burton: “I like night games. Unfortunately last time we went to Lincoln we got tucked up a treat so I’m hoping for a better performance.

“They’ve had a new manager in there for a while now, but they signed a few last month. The way he wants to play takes a little bit of time, but they’ve had some good results. I think their home atmosphere is really good and their fans will be right behind their team.

“We’re taking a good following as well, so I’m expecting a real humdinger of a game. Both teams play similar shapes so it should be a game that goes to the final whistle.”
