Rotherham hope for Man Utd draw

Millers boss Mark Robins
Robins has already won the manager of the month award this season.

Rotherham United manager Mark Robins believes his side side deserve to draw former club Manchester United in the next round of the Carling Cup.

Robins' League Two side beat Southampton 3-1 on Tuesday night, their third consecutive Championship scalp.

Robins told BBC Radio Sheffield: "Hopefully we'll get Man United at Old Trafford and it'll be a fantastic day out and make a few quid.

"We deserve a big draw because the lads deserve it."

The Millers have knocked out Sheffield Wednesday, Wolves and now the Saints in this year's competition with Nick Fenton, Danny Harrison and Drew Broughton scoring for the Millers in Tuesday night's win at the Don Valley Stadium.

Robins, who started his career at Old Trafford, will now turn his attentions towards Saturday's league trip to Dagenham & Redbridge in the league.

"We need to remain grounded and focused on the job because we are still minus three [points] in the league."
