Millmoor, the home of Rotherham United, may stage European football this summer. Building work at Hillsborough means that Sheffield Wednesday, one of England's three Intertoto Cup entrants, may have to find a temporary home for their matches in the tournament.

Wednesday's opponents have yet to be named, but Wimbledon will face Belgium's Charleroi, Turkey's Bursaspor, Israel's Beitar Jerusalem and a Slovakian club. Tottenham will meet Osters Vaxjo of Sweden, Slovenia's Rudar Velenje and clubs from Germany and Switzerland. Scotland's Partick Thistle will face Iceland's IBK Keflavik and teams from France, Austria and Croatia.

n It was reported last night that Arsenal have offered Bobby Robson a five-year contract worth around pounds 2m to manage the Highbury club. However, the former England manager's current club, Porto, want him to stay in Portugal for the remaining year of his contract.
