Team News...
The visitors will be without midfielder Damien Mozika, who serves the final game of a two-match ban. Defender Ben Futcher could also miss out as he remains doubtful with a hamstring problem.

The Millers welcome back Ryan Cresswell, Omar Daley and Adam Le Fondre to their squad whilst Callum Kennedy plays the last game of his loan spell from Swindon. Cresswell could replace Danny Coid (dead leg) with Johnny Mullins moving to right back or Dale Tonge coming into the side.

Tom Newey is out through suspension whilst Ian Thomas-Moore or Liam Henderson are likely to have to settle for a place on the bench.
