Barnet have a host of injury worries.

The rock-bottom Bees will be without defender Barry Fuller after he suffered a facial injury which needed stitches at Aldershot on Tuesday.

Jon Nurse is also out after going off against the Shots with back spasms and fellow striker Jamal Lowe is a major doubt after taking a kick to his knee.

Midfielder Mark Byrne and winger Andy Yiadom will be out for another week to 10 days with ankle injuries and goalkeeper Liam O'Brien underwent hernia surgery on Monday which will keep him sidelined for three weeks.

Full-back Danny Senda and striker Steve Kabba remain in the treatment room as they recover from long-term knee injuries.

Rotherham are still sweating on Iceland international Kari Arnason's availability.

The midfielder has missed the last three games after picking up an ankle injury during his country's win at Norway a fortnight ago and is still struggling, so he will face a late test.

Fellow midfielder David Noble will come back into contention following his spell away from the club to attend to personal issues, though he is unlikely to start.

Laurie Wilson is still troubled by a knee injury and is unlikely to play, with Dale Tonge continuing to fill the void at left-back.

Elsewhere, banned manager Steve Evans, who will travel down with the squad before heading on to scout future opposition, could be tempted to make changes in the wake of Tuesday's first league defeat at New York against Rochdale.

Striker Daniel Nardiello, winger Lionel Ainsworth and Kieran Agard will hope for starts as the Millers chase a first away win of the season.
