Mixed fortunes for Millers and Shrews loanees

02 December 2011 11:21
Rotherham and Shrewsbury go into tomorrow's FA Cup tie with mixed news over their loan players.

As we confirmed earlier in the week, Millers boss Andy Scott received good news on the availability of Sam Wood who has been passed to play by parent club Brentford.

Brett Williams and Guy Branston are also set to start for the Millers, but Notts County loanee Jon Harley will be replaced by Tom Newey at left back.

Graham Turner was also waiting on the news of loan pair James Hurst and James Wallace.

Wallace has just extended his loan from Everton for a further month but he won't be able to play tomorrow. Hurst however, has been given the nod to feature from his parent club West Brom this morning.

Turner is without Arran Wildig though who is absent through injury.

The Shrews attack will be spearheaded by Marvin Morgan and Terry Gornell, and with Scott already confirming the Millers will take a few chances in going for a win, he is set to name a three man attack featuring Williams, Alex Revell and top scorer Lewis Grabban.

There will be a minutes silence before kick off to mark the death of Wales manager Gary Speed.
