Match Preview









Schofield unable to play for Stanley

Accrington are without Danny Schofield as they face his parent-club Rotherham.

The midfielder is ineligible to play against the club he joined Stanley from on loan.

Schofield is likely to be replaced by George Miller in the midfield after the 20-year-old recovered from a thigh injury.

Young forward James Gray has recovered from a bout of illness and is looking to force his way back into the matchday squad.

Defender Michael Liddle serves the final match of his three-game ban after his red card in the 4-3 defeat at Chesterfield.

Charlie Barnett remains sidelined with the ankle problem he picked up in the same game, but manager Paul Cook has no other injury problems to deal with as his side look for a third successive victory.

Rotherham could pick an unchanged side.

The Millers returned to winning ways on Saturday when they cruised past Oxford and Steve Evans may keep faith with the same starting XI.

That is dependant on a couple of unnamed players shaking off knocks, but the Millers boss, who will serve the fifth game of his stadium ban, is not too concerned.

Midfielder Kari Arnason made his return from a four-game absence against the U's and having shown no ill-effects of an ankle injury, he will keep his place in midfield.

Laurie Wilson (knee) is back in training, but will not feature and striker Alex Revell sits out the second of his three-game ban.

The Millers, still searching for their first away win of the season, have lost just one of their last eight meetings with Stanley.M
