Rotherham boss Ronnie Moore welcomes back Callum Kennedy for the clash with promotion rivals Shrewsbury at the Don Valley Stadium.

The on-loan Swindon defender missed Tuesday`s 2-0 win over Accrington as he served a one-match ban following his debut sending off against Oxford on Saturday.

However, Moore will be unable to call upon winger Ryan Taylor, who suffered a groin strain after 15 minutes against the Us, or his son, striker Ian Thomas-Moore, as he is struggling with a hamstring problem.

On-loan Watford striker Liam Henderson will continue in attack alongside the prolific Adam Le Fondre after he made an impressive debut against Stanley.

Bradford loanee Omar Daley is also set to retain his place after netting in his first start for the club in midweek.

Meanwhile, captain Ryan Cresswell is making good progress following his broken collarbone, but is still a few weeks away from returning to action.

Graham Turner could keep faith with an unchanged Shrewsbury side for the third successive game.

Shrews go into the encounter on the back of four successive victories, with Turner retaining the same XI for last Saturday`s 1-0 victory over Stevenage as the one who tore apart Lincoln 5-1.

And that may well be the way he opts to go as second meets third in League Two, although striker James Collins is pushing hard for a recall to Town`s starting line-up.

Midfielder Sean McAllister (hernia) has joined striker Tom Bradshaw (ankle) and defender Dave Raven (hip) on the sidelines. Nathan Elder and Benjamin van den Broek (both knee) featured for the club`s reserves in midweek after lengthy absences although whether they are involved this weekend remains to be seen.

Shrewsbury travel to Yorkshire feeling fresh having enjoyed Monday and Wednesday off this week as reward for their demanding schedule of matches of late.
