Manager John Coleman is boosted by having midfielder Ray Putterill back in the ranks for Accrington's clash with Rotherham.

The 21-year-old, who was signed from Liverpool in the summer, has not appeared for Stanley since August after being handed a 42-day ban because of issues with his registration.

However, his return is tempered by the losses of Andrew Procter and Jonathan Bateson.

The duo picked up straight red cards late on during last week's 2-2 draw with Bury and, subsequently, will serve three-match suspensions.

Accrington are ninth in npower League Two and will be hoping to move towards the play-off places with victory over Alan Knill's side.

Rotherham will be without defender Nick Fenton for the trip.

The centre-half sustained a calf injury during the second half of the 1-1 draw with Stevenage last week and faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

However, the loss of Fenton is offset by the return of skipper Ryan Cresswell, who returns to the fray after missing the last three games following the death of his grandfather.

Boss Ronnie Moore is unlikely to make further changes as his side travel to Lancashire aiming to protect a six-match unbeaten run in League Two.

Striker Ryan Taylor, who returned to the bench against Stevenage after returning from a metatarsal injury, is unlikely to start, with Moore continuing to partner Tom Pope with the prolific Adam Le Fondre.
