KEY man Chiedozie Ogbene is fit for selection for Rotherham United as they return to League One action this Saturday after the international break.

The flying winger tweaked his hamstring in the derby against Sheffield Wednesday on August 21 and had to leave the pitch with an injury that cost him a call-up from the Republic of Ireland.

But he has now been given the all-clear and has been back in full training all this week.

The Millers face Fleetwood Town at AESSEAL New York Stadium this weekend when they will be looking to break into the play-off places.

“Chieo will be available,” confirmed manager Paul Warne after Tuesday night’s 6-0 away demolition of Doncaster Rovers in the EFL Trophy.

“He would have been available for today but there was just no need to play him really.”

Ogbene, who has started the season in superb form, worked out with the main group on Monday and then trained again at Roundwood on Tuesday while his teammates were concentrating on the Rovers clash.

“He’ll train with the group again on Thursday,” Warne said. “He is in good fettle.”

Rotherham will be further strengthened by the presence of Shane Ferguson (Northern Ireland), Wes Harding (Jamaica) and Josh Kayode (Republic of Ireland Under-21s) after international duty.
