Rotherham will be without skipper Craig Morgan for the home clash with Colchester.

Morgan was booked for the fifth time this season in last week's 1-0 defeat at Leyton Orient so he will now serve a one-match ban, meaning Pablo Mills will partner Kari Arnason in defence.

There are no new injuries for boss Steve Evans to contend with, but he could be tempted to make changes in a bid to arrest a four-game winless run, with strikers Tom Eaves and Matt Tubbs in the frame for starts.

David Worrall (groin) is back in training, but Claude Davis (hamstring) still occupies the treatment room.

Colchester are expected to boast the same squad for the trip to Rotherham as the one which disposed of Peterborough last weekend.

U's boss Joe Dunne is managing a lengthy injury list as he drafts in the club's youngsters and it was Macauley Bonne, in what was only his second substitute outing on his 18th birthday, who headed the winner in last Saturday's 1-0 victory over high-flying Posh.

Ryan Dickson, Tom Eastman and Tosin Olufemi each got 45 minutes under their belts in the Essex Senior Cup on Tuesday but are unlikely to be ready for first-team involvement.

David Wright, Gavin Massey, Freddie Sears (all hamstring), Jabo Ibehre (hip), Sanchez Watt (thigh), Josh Thompson (ankle) and Drey Wright (knee) are all set to remain on the sidelines.
