Preston North End boss Simon Grayson reckons there is plenty more to come from his side after at times falling below standards in the first leg.

Grayson said: “If I had been driving home on Saturday night thinking we had played really well and had still drawn the game 1-1, I would have been disappointed.

“As it was, I drove home with us having drawn 1-1 and knowing our team still has more in the locker.

“We had always told the lads to make sure they were still in with a good shout going into the second leg.

“They did that and now it is all to play for at Rotherham.

“There are things which we will have to do a lot better tomorrow night but we are certainly well prepared and looking forward to it.”

Josh Brownhill could get a recall to the squad after being overlooked for the last three games.

Said Grayson: “Josh has just been a bit unfortunate. He has done well in training and there is no reason why he might not be involved tomorrow.

“I can only pick 11 players to start and seven subs.

“Stuart Beavon was also unfortunate to be left out of the side. It is a luxury I have got with having an almost fully-fit squad and a good squad.”
