Barnet striker Charlie Taylor faces a late fitness test ahead of the home clash against Rotherham.

The summer signing from Sutton United picked up a muscle strain in training which forced him to miss last weekend's defeat at Lincoln and remains a doubt.

Defender Darren Dennehy looks likely to be ruled out until the new year with a foot injury.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international suffered a ligament tear during the win over Cheltenham a fortnight ago.

But the Bees have been boosted by the news striker Phil Walsh has extended his loan spell from Dagenham.

Walsh hit two goals in his initial month-long stint and has now agreed to stay at Underhill until mid-October.

Tom Elliott looks set to be missing for Rotherham.

The on-loan striker has been struggling with a hamstring injury and his refusal to play unless he is 100% fit has seen frustrated boss Ronnie Moore calling for him to "grow up".

Tom Pope played 90 minutes and scored for the reserves in the week as he continues his recovery from a metatarsal injury and he could be in frame for a start.

The Millers blew a 3-0 half-time lead against Burton last week to hang on for a point and Moore could be tempted to tinker with his defence as a result.

Nick Fenton is fully recovered from a groin injury and could come into the centre of defence while on-loan Dean Holden will be hoping for a recall at right-back.

Ryan Taylor has returned to full training following a broken metatarsal but he is a few weeks away from contention while Dale Tonge remains out with a similar injury.
