ROTHERHAM United will have a decision on the future of Lee Frecklington after tonight’s game and then one over the replacement for Craig Morgan in the next couple of days.

First comes the visit of Wycombe Wanderers to New York Stadium tonight as the Millers seek to make further inroads on the leading sides above them.

It is the final game of Frecklington’s loan spell and Rotherham are eager to keep him.

“We’re in Peterborough’s hands, really, but he’s indicated there’s no reason why he wouldn’t stay - he’s playing and enjoying it - and we’d love him to and hope we can keep him,” said manager Steve Evans.

The Millers boss sized up various options, including a loan signing, to replace Morgan who will be out for six weeks with a broken bone in his ankle. This includes considering the recall of Johnny Mullins from Oxford.

Without an 11th-hour arrival, it would appear to point to another centre defence outing for Jason Taylor against Wycombe after he deputised for Morgan for the final 50 minutes on Saturday.

“We need to push on after Saturday but you can be sure Wycombe will be out there fighting,” said Evans.
