Steve Evans talks to www.themillers.co.uk...
Rotherham United manager Steve Evans hailed this afternoon’s Capital One Cup second round draw at Aston Villa as ‘fantastic’ for the club.
The Millers earned their place in the second round draw after a 2-1 victory over local rivals Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night, and now travel to Villa Park the week commencing 26th August to face the Premier League side.
“It is a fantastic draw for the club,” beamed the Millers manager.
“We really wanted a Premier League side and that is just what we have got. Aston Villa are a great club, which is steeped in history and I am looking forward to seeing a man I know very well, fellow Glaswegian Paul Lambert.
“It is a few weeks away but I am sure it is a game that the fans are looking forward to, and I am sure that whatever the result it will be a great night for them. What I do know for certain is that whatever the ticket allocation is, the Millers fans will travel in big numbers and make plenty of noise.”
