Stockport caretaker boss Peter Ward has no new injury or suspension concerns ahead of the home clash with Rotherham.

New loan signings Anthony Elding, Ishmel Demontagnac, Stephen Husband and Matthew Grieve arrived at Edgeley Park on Friday and all four started Saturday's 5-1 home thumping by Gillingham.

Whether Ward will make changes after that debacle remains to be seen, but he will again choose from the same squad of players.

Ward is seeking a positive response from his players following Saturday's humiliation.

Ward said: "We had just 90 minutes on Friday with the new players but that's no excuse. It shows what a lot of hard work we've got to do to turn this round."

Rotherham will have Ryan Taylor available for the rearranged clash.

The striker, who has scored three goals in his last four games, limped out of the Millers' last outing at Macclesfield with a suspected recurrence of a broken metatarsal.

But X-rays showed no fracture and after returning to training late last week, he will take his place in Ronnie Moore's side.

On-loan defender Danny Coid will miss out again with ankle ligament damage, so Dale Tonge will continue at right-back.

Skipper Ryan Cresswell has begun gym work after surgery on a broken collarbone but he will not be ready for match action for at least another three weeks.

The Millers have won four of their last five League Two outings and are unbeaten since the end of October as their promotion bid gathers pace.
