Striker Ryan Brunt, a midweek signing from Stoke, and defender Clayton McDonald, on loan from Port Vale, are both likely to be involved.

John-Joe O'Toole is is scheduled to play the last game of his initial one-month loan spell and is scheduled to return to his parent club next Tuesday.

Jim Paterson is sidelined with a hamstring complaint but Ward's options are boosted by the return of striker David Clarkson following a month-long absence because of an ankle injury.

Rovers are currently two points from safety at the foot of npower League Two but they can take heart from two wins in their last three games and the fact they did the double over the Millers last season.
