Pope is hopeful of being fit to face the club he left in the summer after coming off just before the break in the same game with a back injury, but both players didn't train yesterday.
Boss Ronnie Moore told the Star he hopes Pope will be fit though - "We'll give him every chance. If it means a late decision then we'll take that. Certainly the lad will be desperate to play."
The Millers are looking to bounce back with a bang after only one win in the last four and a 3-1 reverse at Sixfields saw them slip out of the top three.
