Rotherham manager Ronnie Moore has no new injury worries ahead of his side's home game against Chesterfield.

Moore may name an unchanged side after last week's 4-1 hammering of Barnet.

Striker Tom Pope scored again for the reserves in midweek and is staking a claim for a first-team start and fellow striker Tom Elliott is likely to be back in the squad after refusing to risk a slight hamstring strain against Barnet to the anger of his manager.

Nick Fenton will have to settle for a place on the bench after recovering from a groin injury while on-loan Dean Holden will be hopeful of a recall at right-back.

Ryan Taylor has returned to training but won't be considered for a few weeks until he regains match fitness.

Chesterfield boss John Sheridan has hinted he may make changes.

The Spireites were impressive as they maintained their unbeaten start to the npower League Two campaign with a 3-0 home victory over Cheltenham last weekend.

However, ahead of the Don Valley Stadium clash, Sheridan said: "Even though we won 3-0, sometimes I may have to make changes depending who we are playing.

"Rotherham are a big physical side who will give us plenty of problems."

Ian Breckin and Rob Page both featured in a midweek practice match against Doncaster.

The former played for 60 minutes and is the more likely to come into the side should Sheridan opt to make changes in defence.

Derek Niven also featured for an hour in that game and he could come into contention if the manager wants to add some steel to the midfield.

Teenage striker Jordan Bowery is a slight doubt with a hip problem.
