Rotherham will have Mark Randall available for their clash with Southend at Don Valley.

The 21-year-old midfielder, on loan from Arsenal, missed Tuesday's 3-3 draw with Stockport after his car broke down on the M6. Randall was supposed to be in a hotel, but returned home without the club's knowledge and he will face disciplinary action.

Manager Ronnie Moore has no fresh injury concerns and is set to name an unchanged side against the Shrimpers, having seen his men wipe out a 3-1 deficit in the final six minutes against Stockport to earn an unlikely point.

Skipper Ryan Cresswell has returned to light training following a broken collarbone, but remains four weeks away from action, while on-loan defender Danny Coid, who will have talks with Moore regarding his future, has ankle ligament damage and will miss out.

The Shrimpers were the last team to inflict a league defeat on Rotherham at the end of October, with the Millers since going eight games unbeaten.

Southend are buoyed by the return of Mark Phillips.

The 28-year-old defender has finally regained fitness following four-and-a-half months out with hamstring and groin problems.

Goalkeeper Glenn Morris started in the home defeat to Chesterfield but having conceded three goals, manager Paul Sturrock may be tempted to recall Rhys Evans.

Defender Peter Gilbert was on the bench against the Spireites and could return to the starting line-up for the first time following a three-match ban.

Striker Barry Corr has scored three goals in the last three matches, taking his tally for the season to eight, and should continue alongside Matthew Patterson.

Speaking to the club's official website, Corr said: "I've targetted 20 goals for the season and after that I'll want 25."
