Ban blow for Rotherham United's Will Vaulks

Rotherham United will be without midfielder Will Vaulks for Saturday's Championship trip to Blackburn Rovers.

Vaulks, who has been Millers skipper for the last three matches, misses out Ewood Park through suspension after picking up his fifth booking of the campaign in the 2-1 home win over Swansea City last Saturday.

Five yellow cards before the end of November trigger a one-game ban and the FA confirmed today that the midfield man is ineligible for the Rovers clash.

The 25-year-old has been a key man for Rotherham this season and has played in every second-tier match so far. 

Last term, as the Millers won promotion from League One, he featured in 44 of their 46 league games.

He took the captain's armband when centre-half Richard dropped to the bench last month following a 1-1 home draw with Bolton Wanderers.
