Keith Curle: "It's a very important fixture for us at this present time and a good opportunity for us to progress, with the next round draw a game that we think we can compete in again. The revenue could be vital for us, as a club that's looking to be successful this season."  (Magpie Player)

Steve Evans: "County are full of talented lads and will be big favourites to win but we will get organised and you never know we might even get the odd 50/50 decision in our favour." (

Target man Alex Revell was central to Rotherham's attacks in the return fixture at the New York Stadium.

A handful for the County backline, the strong frontman has the ability to hold up play and bring others into the game.

The 29-year-old has three goals to his name so far this term, with his most recent finish registered against Aldershot back in October. 

The most recent Meadow Lane meeting between Notts and Rotherham was one to remember.

Spectators had to wait 89 minutes for a goal but it came in spectacular style, as frontman Luke Rodgers fired the Magpies to victory. 

The roof was almost lifted, as Rodgers sprinted down the touchline in celebration, waving his shirt above his head. 

The 1-0 win was a key part of County's 2009.10 League 2 championship winning campaign.
