The centre-half played in the 2-0 Championship defeat at Huddersfield Town despite picking up a stomach bug that had left him drained in the build-up to the clash.

“We think he has come through, he seems in a good place,” said manager Matt Taylor as the Millers made the trip down the M1 today for an overnight stay in London.

“We are pleased to have him available and hope Saturday didn't take too much out of him. He hadn't been well, but he is a tough boy. He wanted to put himself out there and got through it relatively well. He has been okay since.”

A key player Rotherham are likely to be without is midfielder Cafu who has picked up a hamstring niggle that saw him miss proceedings at the John Smith's Stadium.

The injury, sustained in training eight days ago, isn't thought to be serious and the 30-year-old should be sidlined for only a short time.

“It just limited his sprinting and his explosive movement, something we have not been able to get back into him as yet,” Taylor said.

“He is probably ruled out for tomorrow evening and it's a race against time for the weekend (home to Preston North End).”
