Barnet could have top scorer John O'Flynn back against Rotherham.

The 27-year-old Irishman is back in training after missing six games with a knee injury and manager Ian Hendon is hopeful he will be fit to start with Barnet needing two points from their remaining four games to ensure League Two status.

O'Flynn, who is approaching the end of his contract, has scored 16 goals this season and has set four more from four games to reach his 20-goal target.

Midfielder Mark Hughes has had six staples taken out of a gash on his forehead to enable him to resume after missing one game while defender Dan Leach is back after serving a one-game suspension.

Fellow centre-half Ismail Yakubu remains troubled by his persistent back problem so Gary Breen will continue.

Rotherham striker Drewe Broughton is doubtful for the trip.

The target man is struggling with a chest infection and that could restrict his availability, meaning Marcus Marshall or Craig McAllister are the likely candidates to partner Adam Le Fondre in attack.

Danny Harrison is unavailable as he serves the second of his three-game ban so Pablo Mills is set to continue in the central midfield role.

Striker Tom Pope and defender Dale Tonge are nursing foot injuries that will keep them out for the rest of the season.

The Millers travel to Underhill with their automatic promotion hopes in tatters, sitting seven points behind third-placed Bournemouth, and anything other than a win will see the Cherries earn a return to League One.

Indeed, Ronnie Moore's men are not yet guaranteed a play-off place, lying just three points ahead of eighth-placed Chesterfield, and they have not won in any of their last six visits to Underhill.
