Rotherham United will be hoping some of their injured players are able to give the thumbs up for this weekend.

Rotherham United will be hoping some of their injured players are able to give the thumbs up for this weekend.

The Millers have had a number of players missing in recent times and on several occasions have not been able to have a full complement of seven on the substitutes’ bench such has been the depletion of the squad.

Last week at Bristol City they had six players from the first team squad out or unable to be considered. Manager Steve Evans hopes some of the missing ones will be available again for Saturday’s big clash with second-placed Wolves.

Probably key of them is midfielder Michael O’Connor who has missed the last five games and was in form when he went out.

He has been back training this week after further treatment for a groin injury and Evans will no doubt hope he can make it.

Joe Skarz has missed two games with a hamstring strain whilst Pablo Mills has also been sidelined for three games with a knee injury.

Rotherham’s game at Preston has been rearranged for Tuesday, Feb 4. It should have been on January 4 but Preston are in the FA Cup.

There are less than 700 tickets left for the Wolves game. It is now all-ticket and they go off sale on Friday at 5pm with no sales on Saturday. They have only 150 left of their 2,500 allocation for the Boxing Day game at Bradford.
