Rotherham boss Ronnie Moore is boosted by the return of midfielder Nicky Law and defender Gavin Gunning ahead of his side's clash with Bury.

Law has been struggling with a groin injury but is back in contention while Gunning has shaken off a thigh problem.

Dale Tongue is also pushing for a start having came off the bench last time out on his way back from an ongoing stress fracture problem.

Striker Drewe Broughton will be in the squad having returned from his loan spell at Lincoln, with on-loan midfielder Craig McAllister set for his first home start since joining from Exeter.

Rotherham have lost three of their last four games but still sit sixth in League Two.

Bury boss Alan Knill has signed Oldham striker Keigan Parker on a one-month loan deal ahead of the trip.

Parker, 27, has made 29 appearances for the Latics this season, scoring two goals, and will stay at Gigg Lane until April 17.

The Shakers hope his arrival will give their play-off push a significant boost after a paltry return of just one goal in their last five matches.

Parker could earn a starting role against the Millers as Ryan Lowe begins a three-match ban for being sent off in last weekend`s 2-0 defeat at Macclesfield.

Skipper Stephen Dawson missed that game because of a family bereavement but is back for the clash with Ronnie Moore`s men.

Striker Danny Carlton is still recovering from a long-term Achilles injury and remains sidelined, along with Paul Scott (knee) and Damien Allen (groin).
