Rotherham United midfielder Tom Adeyemi has given his thoughts on facing Leeds United this weekend for the first time since his spell at the club.

Adeyemi spent the season on loan at Leeds from Cardiff City last season, but failed to nail down a starting spot in the XI, with chances limited after Liam Bridcutt was signed.

He is on another loan at Rotherham, who host Leeds United this weekend in the Championship.

Rotherham are rock bottom of the division and need a win against seventh placed Leeds, who are coming off a loss last weekend to top side Newcastle.

Speaking to the Millers' official website, Adeyemi says he believes Rotherham can win the fixture.

He said: "It is a big game, it is one that we are really looking forward to and more importantly we believe that we can get the three points.”

“For all the players this is a real chance to give a good account of ourselves when you are in the limelight.

"It is nice to be in front of the cameras. My family haven't had chance to come to a game yet so they will be able to watch it on TV so it is always good to know that people will be watching.”

Adeyemi's spell at Rotherham has been interrupted by injury so far but he is expected to start the fixture against his former team, along with ex-Leeds trainee Danny Ward, who has netted eight goals this season.

Adeyemi, 25, is still looking for his first goal for the Millers, and could prove a point to his former team by opening his account in the Yorkshire derby this weekend.
