ROTHERHAM UNITED: Sharps ban for FA Cup replay

ROTHERHAM United will be without skipper Ian Sharps for tomorrow’s FA Cup second round replay at Notts County.

Sharps picked up his fifth booking in the 1-0 win at AFC Wimbledon, Rotherham’s third successive away win.

It was for protesting to an assistant referee after what seemed a blatant foul on right back Johnny Mullins wasn’t given. Mullins was sent crashing into the surrounding wall and was still lying there injured whilst Sharps was protesting and was then shown the yellow card.

It seems likely that Mullins will switch to centre defence at Meadow Lane with the fit-again Mark Bradley returning at right back.

However, Rotherham still need a left back as on-loan Liam Ridehalgh is not allowed to play by his club Huddersfield. Goalkeeper Scott Shearer is a doubt after failing to make the bench on Saturday due to an elbow injury picked up in training.
