Rotherham United Vs Torquay United, Fri 19 Feb 2010

Ronnie Moore is expected to named an unchanged starting line-up for the third consecutive game when Rotherham entertain Torquay.

The in-form Millers have won their last two games to get their automatic promotion bid back on track and Moore is set to stick with the same side that beat Dagenham & Redbridge and Lincoln.

Defender Dale Tonge has been sent to see a specialist as he continues to struggle with a foot injury.

The full-back sustained a stress fracture in November but soon after returning from that injury he took a whack on the same foot against Darlington and Mark Lynch is expected to start at right-back once again.

There will be a change on the substitutes bench after striker Drewe Broughton completed a one-month loan move to Lincoln this week.

Back-up goalkeepers Jonathan Lund (shoulder) and Jamie Annerson (head) face a race against time to be fit and if they are ruled out the Millers will be without a keeper on the bench once again.

Torquay could be without goalkeeper Michael Poke at Don Valley Stadium.

Poke limped off at half-time in Saturday's 2-1 defeat against Port Vale with a niggling groin injury.

It remains to be seen whether he will recover in time for Friday night's game and Scott Bevan is on standby to deputise between the sticks if necessary.

Manager Paul Buckle must continue to make do without winger Wayne Carlisle, who is still recovering from the knee injury that has kept him out since the Gulls' 1-0 defeat at Chesterfield on January 16.

Jake Thomson and Eunan O'Kane started on the flanks in last weekend's 2-1 loss at the hands of Port Vale, but Buckle could also call upon Mustapha Carayol and Danny Stevens.

Scott Rendell remains on the sidelines with a broken forearm, so Chris Zebroski and on-loan Plymouth forward Ashley Barnes are likely to continue in attack.
