Match Preview

Hoskins in the frame Millers Rotherham could hand a start to on-loan forward Sam Hoskins when they entertain Cheltenham at Don Valley. The 19-year-old came off the bench to notch his first senior goal with a winner in Good Friday's win at AFC Wimbledon and could be rewarded with a shirt in Easter Monday's starting XI. Caretaker-manager Darren Patterson may ponder other changes with such a quick return to action and will assess his squad's fitness on Sunday. Central defender Michael Raynes has declared himself fit after a speedy recovery from a hamstring injury, though he is unlikely to be risked, with Ryan Cresswell slotting in at centre-half so well in Raynes' absence. Richard Naylor and Luke Foster (both knee) are the only definite absentees as their season is over. Patterson, who did not apply for the permanent manager's position following Andy Scott's sacking, has led the Millers to three wins and a defeat from his four games in charge. Cheltenham will be without the suspended pair of Sido Jombati and Marlon Pack. Defender Jombati sits out the second match of a three-game ban after he was dismissed for a foul on Southend's Michael Timlin in the 19th minute of the two sides' meeting at Roots Hall. Midfielder Pack, meanwhile, was booked for the 10th time this season in the same match and serves the second of two games on the sidelines. Otherwise, the Robins are injury-free for the encounter as they look to maintain their play-off bid. Kaid Mohamed scored Cheltenham's first goal in 10 hours and two minutes of playing time after coming off the bench in the 2-0 victory over Barnet on Good Friday and could earn himself a recall, while Jermaine McGlashan is also pushing for a return to the starting line-up.
