Rotherham manager Steve Evans will make changes to his side.

The Millers saw their automatic promotion hopes suffer a damaging blow when losing 3-0 at Cheltenham a fortnight ago and realistically only three points will do on Saturday.

Evans will recall Kari Arnason after he served a two-game ban, with the Iceland international set to come back in midfield, possibly at the expense of Michael O'Connor or David Noble.

There could also be a change in goal with Scott Shearer back fit again after several months out with knee and elbow injuries, with Andy Warrington's place under threat.

Daniel Kearns is another option for the Millers and the loanee could start on the left instead of Ben Pringle.

Mark Bradley (foot) is the only absentee and he will be in the treatment room for the next couple of weeks.

The Millers, who saw last weekend's game with Exeter called off due to the snow, have only won one of their last six matches and their assault on a top-three spot will realistically be over if they lose to the Dons.

Pim Balkestein returns to the AFC Wimbledon squad.

The Dutch defender has been out for two weeks with a hamstring injury but is back to fitness.

Sammy Moore looks set to miss out again through illness, although the Dons are hopeful he will recover in time to face Barnet on Monday.

Fellow midfielder Peter Sweeney remains sidelined with a broken metatarsal and full-back Jim Fenlon is out due to a back injury.

Winger Brennan Dickenson has returned to parent club Brighton with a foot injury but striker Jesse Darko has extended his loan spell from Cardiff.

Defender Curtis Osano has shaken off a calf knock and midfielder Huw Johnson is fit after a groin problem.
