Rotherham Preview

 

FA Cup Preview

Following the floods this week, the temperature has dropped and it looks like it could be a cold one for all those Magpies heading to New York.

New York, USA style, is usually cold at this time of year but it  has plenty of things happening to make sure you do not think about the temperature too much!

And the same can be said for New York of the Rotherham variety as the Magpies take over the Millers'  new stadium!

A local derby, a cracking atmosphere and the prospect of reaching the Third Round of the FA Cup should make for an exciting afternoon.

Notts have sold over 1300 tickets and as it is Pay on the Day too make sure you do not miss out. You can still book your place on the Supporters Club Coaches for the special price of £9.00. Click here for details
