Captain could make Millers return
Rotherham boss Steve Evans could be tempted to welcome captain Ian Sharps back to the fold when Accrington head to the New York Stadium.
Sharps was left on the substitutes' bench despite returning from suspension as the Millers crashed to a 2-1 defeat against Port Vale. Evans' side are now without a home win in their last four outings and assistant manager Paul Raynor admitted they were disappointed by the loss to fellow promotion hopefuls Vale. As a result, left-back Liam Ridehalgh, another unused replacement against Micky Adams' men, could also be welcomed back into the starting XI. Craig Morgan, Lionel Ainsworth, Dale Tonge and David Noble are all out until the New Year. Evans revealed both Tonge and Noble are expected to play 90 minutes in an outing for the reserves on January 2.
