ANOTHER AWAY TRIP IN THE FA CUP, TOMMY RESPONDS TO THE DRAW AND SATURDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS.

Those hoping for a plum money spinning home tie in the Fa Cup were left disappointed after the Millers were drawn away yet again.

Carlton have been drawn away to Conference North team Rushall Olympic in the 2nd qualifying round after the fine 2-1 win at Nuneaton Borough.

The Millers were drawn away to Quorn first up before their one home tie against Maltby Main, the Millers are also away in the Fa Trophy on Saturday when they visit Coleshill .

Joint manager Tommy Brookbanks was upbeat about the draw when he spoke to us earlier however.

”We are obviously big underdogs, but the way we are playing we have a chance, myself and Mark have a decent record against them from our Coalville days”

”I know the Chairman John who is a top man, they are a nice club who gained promotion last season and are on an upward curve, so yes it’s a tough draw for us, but our supporters are helping drive us on so you never know”

”I looked at the article by Sam yesterday and I noticed the home gate for the Brigg game some 10 years ago was 63, we are now often taking that many to away games, so it shows our direction of travel to”

”Our supporters are magnificent, they stuck with us last season and helped get us over the line in terms of staying up and they have supported both vocally and in numbers again this season, the players and management team really do appreciate it” said Tommy

“ Before we even think about that game however, we have another tough away trip in the Fa Trophy on Saturday, Cameron the manager there has Coleshill playing some good football and we have to repeat Saturday’s performance if we are to progress, hopefully we will have a few travelling with us again and we will give it our best shot” concluded the Millers Joint Manager.

The Millers thank them for there superb hospitality and wish them luck for the rest of the season .
