Boss Ronnie Moore has fresh injury or suspension worries ahead of the second leg of Rotherham`s Coca-Cola League Two play-off semi final clash with Aldershot.

Top-scorer Adam Le Fondre scored 88th-minute winner on his return to the side in the first leg and will continue up front alongside Ryan Taylor, who played his first game for the club since his loan spell at Exeter.

On-loan Middlesbrough midfielder Josh Walker will again have to settle for a place on the bench after being an unused substitute at the Recreation Ground.

Moore admitted some of his players are struggling with knocks but insists they will play through them, leaving striker Tom Pope and defender Dale Tonge as the only absentees.

Aldershot will be without goalkeeper Jamie Young.

Young lasted just 23 minutes of Saturday's first leg before he injured his knee so Venezuelan Mikhael Jaimez-Ruiz will start between the posts at the Don Valley Stadium.

Manager Kevin Dillon has no other injury concerns as he looks to overturn a 1-0 deficit and send the Shots to Wembley for the first time.

Former Reading midfielder John Halls started the first leg but looked short of match fitness so Ben Harding may come in but full-backs Ben Herd and Andy Sandell came through unscathed and will keep their places.

Player of the year Herd is fit after a month out with an ankle injury while Sandell has shook off a groin problem.

Aaron Brown should start at centre-half despite his error on Saturday which gave Le Fondre the only goal.
