Defensive changes for Millers
Rotherham manager Andy Scott will be forced to change his defence once again when Aldershot visit Don Valley.
Scott, who has been beset by injuries to his backline this season, is unable to call on Michael Raynes who was stretchered off in the 1-1 draw with Northampton last week with a knee problem.
It was feared the centre-half had suffered a cruciate ligament injury but it has eased with the problem spreading to his calf and Achilles.
Raynes' absence is at least off-set by the return of Guy Branston, who has completed a three-match ban following a red card just an hour into his three-month loan spell, and he should slot into the back four.
Goalkeeper Andy Warrington has returned to light training following a thigh injury and Scott will be tempted to hand the veteran the shirt after Conrad Logan's clanger handed the Cobblers a point at Sixfields.
Ryan Cresswell (ankle), Mark Bradley (shoulder) and Jamie Annerson (knee) remain long-term absentees as the Millers chase a first league win in 10 games.
Aldershot continue to be missing only Alex Rodman as they make the trip north.
Rodman has been forced to the sidelines for the recent victories over Crewe and Burton having damaged his shoulder during the Shots' Carling Cup fourth-round exit to Manchester United.
And the midfielder will again sit out at Don Valley as Dean Holdsworth's resurgent side aim to make it four consecutive league wins having kick-started their recent upturn in form with a 5-2 triumph at Dagenham & Redbridge.
Holdsworth has named the same matchday 16 for the last two games and could well opt to keep faith for a third successive encounter in South Yorkshire.
Shots, 13th, are coming up against a Rotherham side just two points and two places below them in the table, however Andy Scott`s side have failed to win any of their last nine league matches.
Millers claim overdue victory
Rotherham got their first win in 10 games and kept their first clean sheet since the end of August with a 2-0 win over 10-man Aldershot.
After an early scare, when Danny Hylton's shot was bravely blocked by Guy Branston, Rotherham took the lead after 14 minutes. Shots goalkeeper Ross Worner spilled Gareth Evans' 30-yard free-kick and Lewis Grabban was left with a simple tap in.
The Millers could have doubled their lead in the 27th minute but Worner made up for his earlier mistake with a brilliant save to keep out a Branston header and followed up with a second save to deny Evans.
Jermaine McGlashan had a great chance to level for the visitors a minute later, but he shot into the side netting and Rotherham went on to double their advantage four minutes before the break.
Chris Holroyd's glancing header from Evans' free kick was just enough to take the ball wide of Worner's dive and into the top corner.
And things got worse for the visitors 10 minutes after the break when Worner received a straight red card after he raced out of his area and clattered straight into Alex Revell. With no keeper on the bench, Hylton went off and midfielder Jamie Collins came off the bench to take over between the sticks.
However, Collins proved his worth with a great save to deny Holroyd but it mattered little as the Millers comfortably held on.
