Team News..
Dale are missing midfielder Jason Taylor for the visit of parent club Rotherham under the terms of his loan.

Another ex-Miller, defender Scott Wiseman, is a doubt but goalkeeper Frank Fielding should start despite being in the England Under-21 squad to face Greece on Wednesday. Chris O'Grady lines up against his former employers too. 

Millers striker Adam Le Fondre (hamstring) faces a late fitness test but midfielder Gary Roberts (shoulder) is doubtful. Jason Walker should continue in midfield.

Dale Tonge and Paul Warne (foot and leg) remain sidelined with injury.
