ROTHERHAM United will have to clear up injury doubts surrounding Nick Fenton and Danny Coid before finalising their side for Friday’s trip to League Two leaders Chesterfield - a game to be played in front of a sell-out crowd at the B2net Stadium after the remaining tickets were snapped up yesterday.

Fenton suffered a thigh injury in training late last week and had a late fitness test before the game with Bury last Saturday but was ruled out.

It meant skipper Ryan Cresswell returned to the side after a three-month absence.

Coid missed the game after suffering a dead leg at Bradford City last Tuesday. He has been under treatment and is a doubt. If he is available it will be the last game of his final loan spell.

“There’s one or two things to wait for but, for sure, it’s the sort of game everybody will want to play in,” said Millers manager Ronnie Moore.

Chesterfield announced last night that the game was a sell-out, thus guaranteeing it will be the largest league gate at the B2net Stadium, topping the 7,864 who saw the match with Burton Albion in November.

Under threat is the record crowd of 9.141 at the England-Germany under-19 international last month, but Friday’s game will involve some non-use of seating due to requirements fo rTV.

Fans are being urged to arrive early, with gates open at 6pm.
