Millers braced for Mullins return
Rotherham boss Steve Evans is hoping to have Johnny Mullins available for the trip to local rivals Chesterfield on Saturday.
The defender was on the bench for Tuesday's npower League Two defeat to Northampton after picking up a knock in last weekend's win over Burton. He returned to full training on Thursday and providing he comes through that without problem, he should return to the right-back spot in place of Mark Bradley. Dale Tonge (Achilles) has returned to training, but is a couple of weeks away from being ready for match action, while Nicky Hunt (hamstring) is set to train next week. Evans has no other selection problems going into the game and looks set to keep changes to a minimum, despite the loss at Sixfields, and is expecting a tough encounter when the Millers make the 20-mile trip down the M1. Evans said: "Our sole focus is to Chesterfield on Saturday and we know how difficult that is going to be. Like Northampton and Burton they are big promotion challengers and I respect their manager who I think does a great job."
