Sky Bet Championship side Rotherham United could be forced to make numerous changes due to facing numerous injuries.

The Millers are without skipper Lee Frecklington, whilst striker Danny Ward (calf) is a 50-50 to make the trip to Cardiff City.

Long-term absentees Aimen Belaid and Darnell Fisher are slowly returning to action and may be fit enough for a spot on the bench.

Jon Taylor has recovered from a knock, however the Millers are forced to make two changes due to Cardiff loan pair Tom Adeyemi and Semi Ajayi ineligibility to play their parent club.

Joel Ekstrand could make a début due to Ajay’s absence.

Analysing the current situation, interim boss Paul Warne wants his side to be aware how much of a test the game against Cardiff will be physically and mentally.

“They are in a good vein of form. They’re a big, strong team and they’ve got pace up front,” he said. “Cardiff know how we play and I know they’ll be diligent on all our set pieces.

“They’ll be hard to beat but we need to get our away form going and I hope our lads can take something from the last 135 minutes – the second half against Blackburn and the performance the other night against Huddersfield.

“We’re low on numbers but we’ll do what we always do and set the team up to try and win.”

The Millers are on the search for a first away win of the season whilst sitting 14 points from safety with 14 matches to go, making relegation a serious threat to the Yorkshire side.
