Aldershot will be without Troy Brown for their final home game of the League Two season.

The defender is on loan from the Millers and is therefore ineligible to face his parent club at the Recreation Ground.

Otherwise, manager Dean Holdsworth has a fully-fit squad to select from, excepting long-term absentees Ross Worner (back), Alex Rodman (pulmonary embolism) and Michael Rankine (leg).

Midfielder Josh Payne returned from his hamstring injury to make the bench for last weekend's impressive 4-0 triumph at Burton and he will be pushing to start this time around.

As will Adam Mekki after the midfielder was dropped to the bench against the Brewers - the only change from the Shots side who saw off Swindon four days earlier.

Meanwhile, Rotherham will be forced to make yet another defensive change.

Skipper Ryan Cresswell is serving a one-match ban following his red card in the 3-2 win over Morecambe last week, meaning there will be more disruption to a defence that has been riddled with injury and suspension all season.

With Michael Raynes still out with a hamstring injury, Richard Naylor is in contention to replace Cresswell after he made his comeback from a lengthy knee problem in Tuesday's reserve game with Notts County.

Goalkeeper Andy Warrington looks set to continue in goal after boss Steve Evans opted to take a look at him in the win over the Shrimps, while Lewis Grabban will lead the line, despite being the subject of several bids this week.

The Shots will be unable to call on Millers defender Troy Brown as part of the terms of his season-long loan.
