Tough Test Against Rotherham

Aldershot News reporter Charlie Oliver has spoken to Shots manager Gary Waddock ahead of today's FA Cup First Round tie against in form South Yorkshire side Rotherham United.

"I'm really looking forward to Saturday," said Waddock. "And I know the players are too. If we can get past Rotherham and then maybe through the next round, then we may get picked out against one of the biggest clubs in the country.

"The FA Cup is great. You want to go as far as you can and try and get the chance to test yourself against teams from a higher level."

But Waddock is acutely aware that Rotherham will be very tough opponents — almost, he believes, as tough a draw as The Shots could have had.

"You always want a home draw in the FA Cup," said Waddock. "But I'm not sure we could have had harder opponents. Leeds United from League One, perhaps, but Rotherham are going very well in League Two and their cup form this season is excellent, one of the best in the country."
