Tonight we host Chelmsford City in the last 16 of the Essex Senior Cup sponsored by BBC Essex

In what will be freezing conditions and on a very soft pitch the Millers look to overturn the Conference South side at Mill Field this evening.

Although last time Millers were sort of happy that the game was called off as they would've had at least ten players injured. The Millers still have problems at centre back as Spencer Harrison looks to miss out due to rolling his ankle on Saturday.

The Millers do really go into this game with nothing to lose, where as Chelmsford City go into this game expecting to roll the Millers over tonight.

In the previous round for Aveley, they progressed away at Wivenhoe Town due to a last minute equaliser and had o squeeze through on penalties 7-6. For Chelmsford they also progressed on penalties against Barking FC to make it to this round.

The Millers form in the past five games have seen them lose only once, draw three times and also won twice and a win today would top off a fine couple of days for the club.

Chelmsford form has been inconsistent and has seen them slip up in recent weeks as the Clarets have lost three, draw one and win one in their last five games.

Teams news for this evening- Danny Hopkins, Alfred Kamara, Billy Holland and Spencer Harrison and also Petrit Elbi are all out.

Sammy Knott has had a long day so who knows.... Alex Stavrinou and Danny Francis are all doubts for the game.

No new suspensions for the Millers, Spencer Harrison remains one yellow card away from a one match ban.

Come On Down this evening as we take on the third highest place team in the competition left. Up The Millers.

Millers vs Clarets. Mill Field. 19.45PM Kick Off. Be there.
