Rotherham United and Watford go into half-time level at the New York Stadium.

Neither side created much of note as the Golden Boys wasted several counter-attack opportunities with sloppy passing.

Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes saved well from Ben Pringle and Rotherham’s Lee Frecklington had an effort deflected narrowly wide just before the break.

The Golden Boys made five changes to their starting XI and left a few first team regulars back in Hertfordshire ahead of Saturday’s match with Leeds United.

Rotherham United: Collin, Broadfoot, Morgan, Arnason, Skarz; Smallwood, Green; Taylor, Frecklington, Pringle; Revell.

Rotherham United substitutes: Loach, Wood, Bowery, Newton, Tidser, Swift, Derbyshire.

Watford: Gomes; Paredes, Angella, Tamas, Hoban; Anya, Andrews, Munari, Fabbrini; Deeney, Vydra.

Watford substitutes: Bond, Tozser, Forestieri, Doyley, Abdi, Dyer, Ighalo.

I've not posted on here for over a year and have been very frustrated at times...but my thoughts are, we have amazing owners and a very very good squid the biggest problem is the man on the touch line, really don't think he has a clue what he is doing in this division, he says all the right things to the fans in his broken English, but when he came in for Zola if he was any good he would of taken us up the league but didn't . He should of been able to cope with what happened on sat but couldn't, don't want to seem so negative so early on. But with our owners bringing in such class and resisting big offers for deeney, you can see where they want us to be and we as fans know where we want to be, my only issue is I don't think this is the man to take us there
