Team News....
The Millers will draft in Luke Ashworth to play centre back and Johnny Mullins fills in for the injured Danny Coid on the right side of defence after his injury in the thumping of Port Vale on Saturday.

Mark Randall could come into contention to start in midfield but Ronnie Moore is likely to stick with the same side barring Coid's absence.

Silkmen Manager Gary Simpson is without injured defensive duo Carl Tremarco and Shaun Brisley.

Striker Ricky Sappleton will start off the bench and Emile Sinclair is still a major doubt.

Richard Butcher should continue in the team though after his scoring return from injury in the 2-2 draw with Bury on New Years Day.
