Rotherham manager Ronnie Moore will select from an unchanged squad for the home clash with Dagenham.

Moore has no new injury or suspension concerns but defender Nick Fenton is still missing and will serve the third instalment of his four-match suspension.

Long-term absentees Paul Warne (ankle), Dale Tonge (foot) and Andy Liddell (Achilles) remain on the sidelines and the trio are a few weeks away from a return to the first team.

Moore's men got their promotion campaign back on track last weekend with a thumping 4-2 win at Yorkshire rivals Bradford.

Meanwhile, Moore has urged the 12 players who are out of contract at the end of the season to follow the example of goalkeeper Andy Warrington.

Moore said: "Andy has earned the right to a new contract with his performances this season. I have told the players out of contract to look at Andy as an example and go out and earn one themselves."

Dagenham & Redbridge will have Nana Ofori-Twumasi available.

The Chelsea full-back's loan deal with the club expired last week but he has now penned a new deal until January.

Ofori-Twumasi has played five games for the Daggers and scored twice in last weekend's 3-1 victory over Bury.

He follows Adam Miller in extending his loan deal at Victoria Road after the Gillingham midfielder signed an extension earlier in the week.

However, that good news has been offset by Stuart Thurgood`s injury blow.

Thurgood had a cartilage operation on Wednesday and will now be ruled out for three months.
