After all the uncertainty surrounding injured players ahead of their semi-final, Rotherham United are able prepare without any major injury hindrance for their Wembley trip.

Long term absentee Mark Bradley is ruled out whilst Miles Addison has not been in contention for some weeks and manager Steve Evans is able to assess his options.

After right back Richard Brindley strained a hamstring in the first leg at Preston, Evans wasn’t optimistic about his chances of recovering if they made Wembley. Now, the Millers boss says Brindley is training and available again.

The ten days between the Preston home game and Wembley give top scorer Kieran Agard extra time to get over his leg injury which had kept him out of the game at Deepdale and had threatened his place in the second leg before, on the morning of the game, he declared himself available.

Opponents Leyton Orient expect to be at full strength as well with wide man Dean Cox set to play despite a groin injury.
