15 July 2017

Paul Warne talks to

Paul Warne has named his team to face Soproni VSE in the final game of the Millers' pre-season tour of Austria.

The mach, with updates provided on the Millers' official twitter account, will see Ipswich loanee Josh Emmanuel make his debut for the club.

There is also a return for Ryan Williams and Semi Ajayi who both missed the mid-week victory over Floridsdorfer.

Here Warney goes through his side for the 5pm kick off local time, 4pm GMT.

"This will be the last time I will be splitting the teams. The lads played 60 minutes and 30 minutes in mid-week, so I will for the majority of players just be swapping them around.

"I've got Richard O'Donnell in goal, and he will most probably play the 90 minutes because Lewis Price took a whack in training so I don't think I'll risk him.

"Josh Emmanuel will play for us for the first time at right-back. Next to him we have got Semi Ajayi who is back from injury which is good. He'll play alongside Michael Ihiekwe, with Ben Purrington slotting in at left-back. Joe Mattock's hamstring is a little sore, he may be able to play but I don't think I'll risk him.

"Jon Taylor has trained well this week and will play right side, with Will Vaulks and Frecks in the middle. Ryan Williams is back with us and he'll play wide left in the first 60.

"We'll give Jamie Proctor and Jonson Clarke-Harris some time together up top.

"For the last 30 minutes I am going 3-4-1-2. We'll have a back three of Darnell Fisher, Dominic Ball and Richard Wood.

"I'll have Darren Potter sitting alongside Will Vaulks who will play the 90.

"Joe Newell will play on the left, with Ryan Williams on the right, and we'll look to try and give him the 90 as well because he needs some more minutes.

"David Ball will slot in the hole just behind Jerry Yates and Kieffer Moore."

Team (first 60): O'Donnell, Emmanuel, Ajayi, Ihiekwe, Purrington, Taylor, Vaulks, Frecklington, Williams, Proctor, Clarke-Harris.

Team (last 30):O'Donnell, Fisher, Dom Ball, Wood, Williams, Vaulks, Potter, Newell, David Ball, Moore, Yates.
