Rotherham v Rochdale preview

Rotherham are waiting on the availability of three loan players ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup clash with Rochdale.
Wigan’s Nouha Dicko and Newcastle pair James Tavernier and Haris Vuckic are all on temporary deals at New York and boss Steve Evans is waiting for news on whether he can pick them.
Michael O’Connor has seen a specialist on his thigh problem and will play no part while Rob Milsom is doubtful with a back injury.
Joe Skarz (hamstring) is fine to resume at left-back while David Worrall could be involved after a lengthy absence.
Rochdale central defenders Olly Lancashire and Jack O’Connell, meanwhile, will both return to contention at Rotherham following suspension.
The duo missed last weekend’s goalless draw at York following respective dismissals in the recent home defeat to Scunthorpe, but manager Keith Hill could be tempted to recall the pair for the FA Cup tie at New York Stadium.
Club skipper Peter Cavanagh (Achilles) returned to the bench as an unused substitute last week following a four-month lay-off and is closing in on a return to action.
But striker George Donnelly remains sidelined with the ankle injury that has kept him out of the last seven matches.
