Rotherham v Shrewsbury preview

Rotherham caretaker boss Andy Liddell has a doubt over defender Nick Fenton.
The 31-year-old was withdrawn after 45 minutes of Friday night’s 6-0 thumping of Lincoln with a leg injury and will be handed a late fitness test.
However, skipper Ryan Cresswell is now fully fit following a long lay-off with a broken collarbone and is ready to step into the starting line-up if needed.
Liddell has no other injury or suspension problems to worry about but has options available if he chooses to shuffle his pack.
On-loan duo Mark Randall and Callum Kennedy are both pushing for a return to the matchday squad after being left out against the Imps.
Top-goalscorer Adam Le Fondre, Jason Taylor, Omar Daley and Liam Henderson are also available for recalls.
Shrewsbury manager Graham Turner has Niall Canavan available.
The on-loan Scunthorpe United centre-back missed the 2-1 win over Bradford on Saturday as he was on duty with the Republic of Ireland Under-21 squad, but will be back to take on the Millers and could be in-line for his debut.
Defender Shane Cansdell-Sherriff picked up a slight calf problem against the Bantams but is expected to be fit.
Striker Tom Bradshaw is pushing for a start after he netted both Town’s goals at the weekend after coming on as a 74th minute substitute.
However, Turner has hinted he may use the 18-year-old as an impact player again to benefit from the opposition’s tiring defences.
Defender Jermaine Grandison remains unavailable as he completes the three-match ban for the straight red card he received during the 5-0 defeat to Torquay earlier this month.
