Team News..
The Shrews choose from the same squad that lost at Hereford last week, with Jamie Devitt and Wade Fairhurst available after extending their loan deals.

The Millers may welcome back the injured Kevin Ellison, and loanee Adam Rundle may be drafted back in after missing the cup draw with Luton.

The game comes a week too early for Dale Tonge so Mark Lynch will continue at right back. Micky Cummins is still around two weeks off full fitness.

MillersMAD's prediction ...

The Millers have been performing with great credit on their travels, and the Madmen see no reason why they should not return from Prostar Stadium with a victory. Away win
