Team News
The Millers are sweating over the fitness of striker Tom Elliott. The teenager is struggling with a knee injury but is hopeful of proving his fitness in time to feature.

Summer signing Johnny Mullins, yet to appear following his switch from Stockport, has not fully recovered following a calf injury and the game is likely to come too soon for him.

Centre-half Nick Fenton is still struggling with a similar problem and will definitely miss out. Strikers Ryan Taylor and Tom Pope and midfielder Dale Tonge, still waiting for their first appearances of the season, all remain sidelined with metatarsal injuries.

The visitors are without Martin Riley with a hamstring injury whilst Theo Lewis has glandular fever.

The Millers drew both of their league games against Cheltenham last season and both sides go into the game unbeaten in the league with four points on the board.

Sequence statistics:
Rotherham U.Unbeaten in the last 5 home games.
Not won in the 2 most recent games.
Cheltenham T.Not won in previous 5 away matches.
