Football - Davis banned for Cobblers clash

Rotherham are without Claude Davis for the visit of Northampton.

The 33-year-old defender had a Millers debut to forget last week following his switch from Crawley as he was sent off for two yellow cards and gave a penalty away in the shambolic 3-1 defeat to bottom-of-the-table Bristol Rovers.

The veteran will now serve a one-match ban so Kari Arnason will revert to central defence alongside Johnny Mullins.

After that poor showing against Rovers, which followed a similarly disappointing result against Barnet, boss Steve Evans could be tempted to make changes.

Striker Jordan Slew will be hoping for a debut after joining on a youth loan from Blackburn.

Mark Bradley is pushing for a recall at right-back in place of Dale Tonge, Adam Morgan could earn a start in attack and David Noble may be handed a place in midfield.

Defender Craig Morgan (foot) is still 10 days away from fitness, while Scott Shearer (elbow) is the only other occupant of the treatment room.
