Cumbrians missing Berrett

Carlisle midfielder James Berrett will miss the home game against Rotherham due to a hamstring injury while Liam Noble and Sam Byrne are both minor doubts.

Berrett missed the midweek win at Coventry, while Noble and on-loan Manchester United striker Byrne sustained knocks, the latter after coming on as a second-half substitute.

Latest signing Nacho Novo is hoping to make his first appearance - the former Rangers striker was an unused substitute on Tuesday night - and defender Chris Chantler (ankle) is pushing for his first start since November after stepping off the bench.

Midfielder Paul Thirlwell (calf) is expected to miss out again and on-loan Aston Villa striker Michael Drennan has returned to his parent club.

Rotherham will check on Mark Bradley.

The right-back suffered a back injury in last week's 2-1 win over Stevenage, but carried on playing as the Millers had made all three substitutes and will be assessed.

Claude Davis and Alex Revell came off with knocks in that game, although the duo should be okay to be involved in the squad.

Davis being fit gives boss Steve Evans a decision to make in defence as skipper Chris Morgan has recovered from illness and Miles Addison did well when replacing Davis last week.
