Team News...
The Silkmen will hand a debut to Greg Mills who has joined on loan from Derby County.

Meanwhile they are still without the absent duo of Ross Draper and Hamza Bencherif through injury.

The Millers could keep faith with the same side who beat Chesterfield, with Gavin Gunning set to be fit after coming off at half time during the midweek game.

Dale Tonge will hope to keep his place in the side though at right back, with Marc Joseph possibly being the man to make way if Ronnie Moore decides to change it. Stephen Brogan may be recalled to the squad after two goals for the reserves on Wednesday evening.
