Bury v Rotherham preview

Andy Bishop is Bury boss Alan Knill’s only injury worry for the visit of Rotherham.
The striker, who has two goals in seven starts this season, continues to struggle with tendonitis of the knee and is a doubt after missing the 4-1 win at Morecambe with the problem.
Peter Sweeney returned from suspension in midweek to take his place on the bench and is likely to sit out again as Steven Schumacher and Damien Mozika continue to build on a partnership in midfield that has seen two wins out of two so far.
Manchester United loanee Nicholas Ajose is pushing for a start after making two appearances from the substitutes’ bench, impressing during a 25-minute spell at the Globe Arena, setting up goals for both Andy Howarth and Schumacher.
Rotherham manager Ronnie Moore will have striker Ryan Taylor in his squad.
Taylor was unexpectedly named on the bench just minutes before the 0-0 home draw with Bradford on Tuesday after Marcus Marshall pulled a hamstring in the warm up.
The 21-year-old, who broke a metatarsal in the first session of pre-season training, ended up playing the final 10 minutes at Don Valley and will again be involved in the matchday 18 at Gigg Lane.
Marshall’s injury is likely to keep him out of action against the Shakers, while Moore may decide to try and renew Exodus Geohaghon’s loan deal from Peterborough after it expired after the midweek game.
The Millers go into the game on the back of a four-match unbeaten run which has seen them among the early pace-setters this term.
