Fleetwood's attacking options have been boosted ahead of the Johnstone' s Paint Trophy tie against Rotherham with Nathan Tyson and Daniel Carr both available again.

Tyson and Carr, on loan from Blackpool and Huddersfield respectively, were not given permission by their parent clubs to play in the FA Cup at the weekend but the duo will come back into manager Graham Alexander's thinking for the semi-final clash on Tuesday night.

Steven Schumacher, Junior Brown, Liam Hogan, Ryan Cresswell, Ryan Crowther and Emmanuel Dieseruvwe - all on the bench for the 1-1 draw with Burton in the cup - are also options for Alexander.

Jamille Matt (ankle) and David Ball (shoulder) remain long-term absentees.

Rotherham manager Steve Evans, meanwhile, could be struggling to name a team in Tuesday's Johnstone's Paint Northern Area semi-final at Fleetwood.

The Millers squad has been struck by an illness bug which saw three or four unnamed players sent home from the club's training ground on Monday and Evans will run the rule on Tuesday morning.

Providing they are not the ones struck down, loanees James Tavernier, Nouha Dicko and Haris Vuckic will all be back in action after they were denied permission to play in Saturday's FA Cup defeat to Rochdale.

Michael O'Connor (thigh), Rob Milson (back) and Pablo Mills (leg) remain out as the Millers aim to make the Area final of the competition they won in 1996.
