Evans weighs up options

Rotherham boss Steve Evans will continue to shuffle his pack ahead of Port Vale's visit on Easter Monday.

With the Millers booked into the play-offs, Evans has been making full use of his squad as he looks to protect players, with Lee Frecklington missing the last three games due to glute injury.

Evans rested Ben Pringle for the amazing 6-4 defeat at Wolves on Good Friday and he should get a recall, while the manager must also assess how much the see-saw nature of the Molineux game took out of his side.

Mark Bradley (knee) is the only confirmed absentee and his season is over following an operation.

Vale are seriously low on numbers ahead of the trip.

The Valiants were already battling a lengthy injury list for Good Friday's 1-0 win over MK Dons, where Micky Adams could only name five substitutes, before things got worse when striker Tom Pope limped off with a season-ending ankle injury.

Jordan Hugill replaced Pope and scored the winning goal so he should start at New York Stadium.

Chris Lines serves the final game of his four-match suspension, but Rob Taylor, Jennison Myrie-Williams, Doug Loft, Joe Davis are all injured while Adams must also try to find a reserve goalkeeper.
