Two players Rotherham United think will be back to face Huddersfield Town and one who has suffered a setback
Midfielder Hakeem Odoffin and striker Georgie Kelly have been laid low by hamstring and knee issues respectively but have now been given the green light by the Millers' medical team to leave the treatment room.
"They'll be with the group," manager Matt Taylor confirmed. "They've ticked all the boxes."
Odofffin hasn't played since limping out of the 2-1 Championship defeat at Sunderland on August 19 while Kelly's last action came a week earlier in the 2-2 home draw with Blackburn Rovers.
Midfield man Jamie Lindsay, who has yet to feature this season, had been tipped to put his achilles problem behind him in the present international break. However, he has needed an injection that will delay his comeback.
"He has had a jab, so that might just curtail him for a week or two but not long term," Taylor said.
Grant Hall is another player who the Millers had anticipated rejoining proceedings during the two-week lull in league action but the hamstring trouble that has sidelined the centre-half since pre-season may hold him back for a little longer. "Hally is getting closer," Taylor said.
Right-back Lee Peltier continues to make good progress after picking up an opening-day calf injury at Stoke City on August 5. "Pelts is also getting closer and closer," said the boss.
Twentieth-placed Rotherham head to the John Smith's Stadium next Saturday for a huge clash against a Huddersfield side who are one spot below them in the table and likely to include Ben Wiles in their line-up three weeks after the midfield man's £1-million-plus departure from the Millers.
