MICHAEL O’Connor, the only one of Rotherham United’s newcomers yet to play, will do so tomorrow.

The midfielder is lined up to face Hearts at the New York Stadium (kick off 2pm).

He suffered a groin strain early in pre-season work but has worked intensively this week and is set for an appearance tomorrow, if not as a starter then off the bench.

O’Connor, who was at Scunthorpe, was one of manager Steve Evans’ first signings this summer.

Hearts, Scottish Cup winners and fifth last season. will provide a stiff test just a week before their season starts.
