Rotherham boss Mark Robins is unlikely to risk skipper Ian Sharps in the Carling Cup second round clash with West Brom.
Sharps missed Sunday's win over Rochdale with a back injury that forced him out against Grimsby in the previous game and Robins is loathe to take a chance on his fitness.
"Ian trained the day before the Rochdale game but dropped out and it was a problem with his back," said Robins.
"He's had some bits clicked back, he might be OK but I'm not inclined to rush him back."
Robins admitted there were "one or two niggles" after the Rochdale game and he will definitely be without striker Drewe Broughton who is set to return from a broken toe in September.
