EFFORTS to add to the Rotherham United squad had not materialised last night as the club prepared for tomorrow’s big clash at promotion rivals Cheltenham Town.

There were further attempts made yesterday with the targets that manager Steve Evans had lined up but nothing had been finalised.

Evans had initially indicated interest in a couple of players and suggested at the start of this week that something would be forthcoming. Then the broken ankle for Mark Bradley meant that attention also turned to looking at bringing in a defender.

The Millers will again be without Kari Arnason at Cheltenham as he completes a two-match ban. Defender Craig Morgan came through a full 90 minutes in the reserves’ 2-1 win at Chesterfield on Tuesday.

Former Millers player Jason Taylor won’t be in the Cheltenham side tomorrow.

“When he joined them in January, I had a gentlemen’s agreement with Mark Yates (Cheltenham boss) that he would not play and so I don’t expect him to be in their side,” said Evans.

“It’s a huge game but, tell me this, when you get to this stage of the season and you’re going for promotion, when isn’t it a huge game?”
