Knockout specialists Rotherham United - with top scorer Reuben Reid available again - are prepared for a totally different experience at Aldershot tomorrow as they look to halt a dreadful run that has seen them not win an FA Cup tie for six seasons.
Their first-round tie takes them to a side beaten only once at home in 15 months and Millers manager Mark Robins says they ware under no illusions over the size of the task at Aldershot.

"Having some success in cup competitions is important but it was more so for us this season because of our situation (with the points deduction in the league)," said Robins.

"We've all been enjoying it and we don't suddenly want it to come to an end and find ourselves knocked out of one this weekend, but this will definitely be different - we're away from home and Aldershot have a tremendous home record."

But Robins said of Aldershot: "They can pass and move at a good tempo and they are talking of the need to battle as well to we should be under no illusions. We are going to have to be right up there for it."
