Their 1-0 loss to the Millers saw midfielder Scot Bennett pick up his fifth yellow card of the season, ruling the City youth product out of the Rochdale clash while Guillem Bauza and Tommy Doherty are injured.
Doherty, who signed a new deal with the club last week until the end of the season, picked up a hamstring injury against Steve Evans' men.
Tisdale will be able to welcome back Craig Woodman however after he served his one-game ban, with Jordan Moore-Taylor set to drop to the bench.
Fellow defenders Steve Tully and Pat Baldwin have had time to recover from their knocks while Arron Davies started for the Grecians' reserves in midweek after a spell out with a calf injury.
