Fresh problems for injury-hit Rotherham United

ROTHERHAM United have been hit by new injury worries as they head into tomorrow night's Championship clash with Brentford.

Centre-half Richard Wood and Matt Olosunde were already doubts for the AESSEAL New York Stadium showdown and now manager Paul Warne has even more concerns.

"There are a few severe issues," he said. "I'm not going to tell you who. We have a few problems that are enough to stop people playing. I won't say how many."

The Millers, who have four of their men ruled out until the New Year, are definitely without central defender Michael Ihiekwe who is serving a one-match suspension after accumulating five yellow cards.

Rotherham will be hoping that at least one of Wood and Olosunde, who both have hamstring complaints, will make the match against the Bees who arrive in South Yorkshire just outside the play-off reckoning.

Wood missed the weekend's 2-2 home draw with second-placed AFC Bournemouth that left the Millers in 19th place while Olosunde had to leave the pitch in the second half.

Warne described the duo's chances of featuring against Brentford as "slim".

"I'm a glass half full sort of guy, but I don't know," he said.

With an important away match against Coventry City on the horizon this Saturday, Warne will be loath to gamble with the fitness of any of his squad tomorrow evening.
