Rotherham V Aldershot at The New York Stadium : Match Preview

Rotherham V Aldershot - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


Evans has team sorted

Rotherham boss Steve Evans picked his starting XI for the promotion showdown with Aldershot on the team coach following last week's win at Plymouth.

The Millers host the Shots, who are managed by former boss Andy Scott, knowing a point would be enough for them to end their seven-year tenure in the basement division.

And Evans selected his line-up en route back from the south-west after hearing a scouting report on Aldershot.

Top scorer Daniel Nardiello is hoping he will be included after he was restricted to the bench at Plymouth following a foot injury, but Kieran Agard has performed admirably in his absence, scoring in the last three games, and Evans may stick with him.

There are no injury or selection concerns for the Millers as they search for a fifth successive win, but they could still go up with defeat, if Cheltenham fail to beat Bradford.

Aldershot boss Scott will check on striker Danny Hylton ahead of the do-or-die clash.

Hylton recently returned to training having been sidelined since early March with a knee injury, but he has yet to make his return to first-team action.

It was hoped Hylton would play some part in the Shots' relegation scrap, but this game could come too soon for him.

Michael Rankine is expected to keep his place in the side after he scored the only goal in last weekend's 1-0 victory over fellow strugglers Dagenham to keep his side's dreams of staying in the Football League alive.

Aaron Morris (cruciate ligament damage) remains sidelined but Scott has no other new injury worries.

Aldershot sit bottom of npower League Two, three points adrift of safety, so this game is a must-win for Scott's side.
