Midfielder Jon Worthington is doubtful for the home side after sustaining a gashed forehead in Saturday's defeat at Gillingham where he required eight stitches.

Tom Adeyemi, on loan from Norwich, David Syers and Lee Bullock are all pushing for recalls to the starting line-up.

Central defender Shane Duff (calf) and club captain Simon Ramsden (thigh) both remain sidelined.

The Millers will do without full back Tom Newey who starts a suspension and will be replaced by Callum Kennedy, but boss Ronnie Moore could welcome back son Ian Thomas-Moore into the starting line up.

Loanees Omar Daley and Kevin Ellison both sit this one out against their parent clubs, as part of the deal that took them to Don Valley and Valley Parade respectively.
