Hello and welcome to today’s episode of Football Today.
There are a number of Yorkshire clubs in action across the Championship and the FA Cup – stay up to date with all of them here with us throughout the afternoon!
Doncaster Rovers head to Scunthorpe United
The Doncaster Rovers are the first for Yorkshire this afternoon as they visit struggling Scunthorpe United in the FA Cup at 1pm.
The Rovers have struggled away in League One this season and manager Richie Wellens is hoping a different competition will bring more joy to his players and club supporters.
He said: “It can take the pressure off a bit, but it also gives us a chance to gain momentum.
“It is a club which was in the league for a few years but which is going through a difficult period at the moment.
“Our fans away from home have been great and we have to start giving them more reasons to scream.”

Bradford City miss four players for Exeter City clash
Bradford City will still be without Caolan Lavery, Abo Eisa, Liam Ridehalgh and Lee Angol for today’s FA Cup fixture against Exeter City.
Adams is hoping to reunite with the quartet in the coming weeks, as Bradford look to advance to the FA Cup second round at Valley Parade this afternoon.
“We’re pretty much the same, we have four players who will still be out this weekend,” Adams confirmed.
“Where I come from is called the Ruhrgebiet. It’s an area of work like Barnsley and it’s pretty similar to here and it’s all about football.
Many great football careers have started with the Barnsley coalfields – from Taylor to Howard, from Winstanley to McCarthy.
For the Reds’ interim head coach Joseph Laumann, you have to travel to the German mining region of Ruhrgebiet, where his own love affair with the beautiful game has really begun.

Rotherham refuses to underestimate Bromley
Paul Warne insists he will pick the strongest team he has as his Rotherham United side host Bromley out of the league in the FA Cup first round today.
The Millers are one of the in-form teams in English football, having lost only one of their last 15 games in all competitions.
Bromley is fourth in the National League but has a game in hand against the teams above them and Warne is not in the mood to take the contest lightly.
“We will approach the game the same as any other and choose the strongest team possible,” he said.
“We have a bit of game-free time after that, so that’s one more hurdle to get through, hopefully injury-free. We will attack the game in the same way. It’s a game we want to win against a very good team. We have observed them a lot and we know what they can do.

Changes planned for Harrogate Town
Simon Weaver has no plans to make a series of changes for Saturday’s FA Cup clash with Wrexham, but has revealed ‘one or two’ players who haven’t played much in recent weeks could start the game.
The Sulphurites boss has been disappointed with some of his side’s recent performances, having seen the club drop from second place in Ligue 2 to seventh after three losses in four matches.
He said: “We’re pretty stable with the selection, there won’t be four starts, four starts, but Saturday will be a chance for one or two to come in and claim.
“When we’ve suffered a few losses and haven’t played well, sooner or later you have to give these guys a chance to show what they can do.”
