The Millers are confident they can pull off a result against their Yorkshire rivals.

Rotherham United goalkeeper Lee Camp has been commenting on the upcoming derby clash with Leeds United in the Championship this weekend.

The goalkeeper, who saved two penalties against Derby County in their clash last weekend, will be hoping to keep Leeds at bay in a game in which the West Yorkshire side are the clear favourites.

Camp believes that his side know exactly what Leeds will offer in the game, and he feels they can sneak a result against the play-off hunters.

He told the official Rotherham United website:

“They're always good games to play in.

“Local rivalries mean that bragging rights are at stake but from our point of view it's another opportunity to try and overcome this period that we're in and get three points on the board.

“It's an old cliché but you have to win the battles. It will be fierce and feisty out there but we have to do our jobs well and we have to keep calm heads in the atmosphere. We know what Leeds are about and they were on TV last week, but we've prepared well for them.”

Leeds of course will be confident of getting the result in the game, considering the two teams contrasting form in the Championship at present.

However, in a local derby anything goes and Leeds can expect this to be a tough battle – in a game again being broadcast on TV.

Leeds are also set to be without key players Pablo Hernandez and Stuart Dallas through injury – whilst star player and central defensive rock Pontus Jansson is also out of the game after picking up his fifth yellow card in the recent 2-0 defeat to Newcastle United.

The Millers are confident ahead of the clash. But Leeds will be hoping they have the quality to get the win.
